Havenít had a chance yet to watch all the way through but if bloggers as diverse as Ace and The Anchoress are saying itís a must-see, Iíll take my chances on blind-posting it.
If you canít spare the full 25 minutes, watch the last 10 or so.
Turns out thereís a deep well of wisdom hidden behind that masturbating bear. There are roughly 80 different items about this speech on Google News, and every last one of them looks to be a rave. Out: Conan OíBrien, late-night host. In: Conan OíBrien, motivational speaker?

That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

I have a new found respect for Conan after that. Great address.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
