US President Barack Obama delivered his first State of the Union address last night, making some grumpy-looking old white dudes clap wildly — while some other grumpy-looking old white dudes crossed their arms and frowned disappointedly.
The White House made the following “behind the scenes” video available, taking us inside the speechwriting process. In some senses, this reflects any other rewriting assignment for the writers involved… except they’re writing it for a pretty important dude who’s catching some flack from all sides. Not an easy assignment.
I wonder what the equivalent Stephen Harper video would be? Meh. It’d probably be super boring and edited into the ground so the final cut would be two and a half seconds of hamburger frying.
