Ever heard of Howard Dean's "I Have a Scream" speech? If you haven't, just Google it and you'll come up with lots of results--nearly all of them remixes.

Anyways, I was wondering if there were any crazy or downright annoying (Hilary Clinton; even if you're voting for her, you've got to close your ears to that voice) speeches, made by usually serious-looking politicians, out there; like Eric Fingerhut's (only Ohioans know him) "I say finger, you say hut. Finger!" "Hut!" "Finger!" "Hut!".

Ew.

How about the infamous "Series of Tubes" speech by Senator Ted Stevens, from when he was discussing net neutrality last year? The Wikipedia article includes more info on it, including a couple short audio clips from his speech. A larger portion of his speech can be heard on YouTube, and you can find multiple techno remixes of it there too. : P

I suppose we should go easy on him though. Do they even get internet access in Alaska? : )

This.... guy is going to destroy Al Gore's Internets! He's going to pop all those tubes (made in China, right), such as YouTube and turn them into commercial Internets nightmare.

Yes, I know he's a bit old..... but he can't just stutter his way through his speech; his little understanding of the importance of the Internet would become evident, and everyone will look at him as an old hag.

Anyways.... I remember a speech where the guy was in Cleveland (near where I live.... of course, I don't live in Cleveland) proclaiming that waves "bigger than those on Lake Erie" will sweep across America and bring Kerry and Edwards to the White House. He obviously doesn't know anything about Cleveland because one who lives there would stop cheering and question; "What waves?"
wah... waall-eee

Maybe he was doing a joke based on the fact that lakes don't have waves (apart from the ripples that come from wind blowing over it). I dunno. Not very well executed in that case, but still. Could be.

Well that would mean the waves supposedly attempting to take Kerry to the White House weren't going to be very big (and of course it turned out they weren't).

Or the joke used what's known as an "understatement", though the reality of it betrayed him in the end, of course.

I don't know.... I'm pretty sure it was meant to be serious. He was yelling pretty loud.

Well Lake Erie does sometimes have large waves during storms, though generally its waves tend to be relatively small. It is one of the Great Lakes though, which might more accurately be described as freshwater seas than what you would normally consider to be a lake.
