Martha Coakley's weird accent

I guess I'm not the only person who thinks that Martha Coakley has a weird accent - a quick Twitter Search shows people remarking on her accent.

Listen yourself to this YouTube video and draw your own conclusions. With the lilting and the off-sounding vowels she sounds to me like she's from Fargo via West Cork. Certainly not Massachusetts though.

She sounds like that band chick in the movie American Pie, 'One time at band camp.....'

She's driving me crazy -- we have a family contest for impersonating her every time that stupid TV ad comes on. And now she's doing phone messages too -- same annoying accent!
