I attended a speechwriting conference in Washington, D.C., last week. As always, Ragan’s lined up a stellar roster of speakers, including scribes for Clinton, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Rumsfeld, Gore — lotsa biggies.
But where was the guy who wrote, “Get ’em outta here! Beat the crap out of ’em! I’d like t’punch you in the face!”? That’s who I want to hear from. Next year, that guy’ll be giving daily briefings from the White House press room.
