Catch of the Day: Got Humor, Mr. Former Vice President?

September 13, 2011

Former Vice President Dick Cheney has been making the interview rounds lately, probably hoping to drum up sales for his book even though several of his former colleagues won’t be buying it.

Two days before the tenth anniversary of September 11th, Stephen Hayes interviewed Cheney at the American Enterprise Institute.

Alexis recently pointed out the importance of delivery, and Matt recently reminded us of the problems of excerpted news. So, as a fun exercise in audience response today, compare your reaction to Cheney at 0:37 and again from 1:16 to 1:44. Any difference in your reaction?

    Very interesting clip. I am going to share this with my public speaking classes and give an update here on how they responded.
