What's the Big Idear?

Just clicked over to MSNBC coverage of a Kerry rally in Tampa, FL. He just pronounced "idea" as "eye-dear" twice consecutively. Somehow I don't think that's the diction they taught him at his Swiss boarding school.

(And yes, I am the same prep-school educated Manhattanite who uses "y'all" for the second-person plural. But I always use it, not just when I'm trying to convince the hicks I'm regular-folks.)

By the way, his mad hand-gesturing schtick really does make him look like a mime.
