What's the Frequency Leach

I have to admit, when I first heard Jim Leach do the Purcell Tire promo leading into his show, it was just too much affectation for me. If you haven't heard it, Purcell has as its tag line "Get it Done." Only they don't say "Get it Done." Purcell has adopted the vernacular of the NASCAR crowd. And so it becomes "Git'r Dun." And that's exactly how the local talk radio host least likely to be thought a Dale Earnhardt fan pronounces it. But I've since taken to it. It kind of conjures up a folksy charm not unlike that that Dan Rather did when he said things such as "if a frog had side pockets, he'd carry a handgun."

There is simply no way to say that without saying it like you're a full-fledged member of Little E's pit crew.

Go ahead, try it -- repeat after me.

"Git 'r done!"
