Texas Accent

I find it odd that American advertisers are so enamoured of Texan regional accents dropping gs, gitting instead of getting and general corn. Perhaps they reason hick actors will project as too stupid to be deceptive, or to conjure up the homespun charm of Mayberry circa 1955. That accent to me conjures up bigots and rednecks like George W. Bush and Rick Perry and TV evangelist scammers and homophobes.
