Midwestern pride is slightly different than tough guy New York pride. (1:26)

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

IT IS GOOD TO BE HEREIN NEW YORK.

I LOVE THIS CITY.IT'S A GREAT CITY.

[applause]

I HAVE LIVED HERE TEN YEARS.

I AM ORIGINALLY FROM INDIANA.

AND I KNOW WHAT MOST OF YOUARE THINKING:

"INDIANA...MAFIA."

THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS,WHERE I GREW UP,

THERE WAS SOMETHING VERY SIMILARTO THE MAFIA: 4-H.

[laughter]

THERE'S A DIFFERENT KINDOF PRIDE WHERE I'M FROM.

IT'S NOT LIKE,

"WE'RE FROM NEW YORK.WE'RE TOUGH."

OR "WE'RE FROM TEXAS.WE LIKE THINGS BIG."

IT'S MORE LIKE, "WE'RE FROMINDIANA, AND WE'RE GONNA MOVE."

[laughter]

GET OUTTA HERE.

YEAH.

I LOVE THIS--I LOVE HOW NEW YORKIS SO MULTICULTURAL.

I WISH I WAS ETHNIC.I'M NOTHING.

'CAUSE IF YOU'RE HISPANICAND YOU GET ANGRY,

PEOPLE LIKE,"HE'S GOT A LATIN TEMPER."

BUT IF YOU'RE A WHITE GUYAND YOU GET ANGRY,

PEOPLE ARE LIKE,"THAT GUY'S A JERK.

"STAY AWAY FROM HIM.

HE'S A TURD."

ACTUALLY, THE REASONI LOOK LIKE THIS

IS BECAUSE MY FATHERWAS FROM SWEDEN,

AND MY MOTHER WAS ELTON JOHN.

[laughter and applause]

HE WAS A VERY GOOD MOMMY.
