Artists/Speech Writers Wanted-$50 prize

  • Deadline:
    March 6, 2006, midnight

Can you imagine a speech given by president Bush that would convince you that he has had a change of heart and could actually be the president of your dreams? It is all too easy (and seems to get easier and easier) to criticize our president and his administration. Life changing events (often of the extremely painful variety) force us to reevaluate our values and actions. What if this happened to our president. What if he were humbled in some way which caused a profound change in his outlook on life and his role as the leader of our country - turning the aggressive posturing of an all-attack-all-the-time leader into a gentler, wiser soul determined to demonstrate the power of honesty and vulnerability. Channel your frustration, use your wit and ingenuity to write "the speech that shocked the world." Send your 1-2 page typed speech to me by March 6th at to be considered for the award of "most convincing" speech. The winning speech will be read by a Bush impersonator and made into an audio recording. The winner will receive a $50 cash prize and a copy of the audio recording. For inspiration I suggest reading about Antanas Mockus, former Mayor of Bogota.
