the state of things

Watching the guv's speech on the Internet was exhausting. Stupid streaming video. I thought his presentation was better than last year; he looks better and his cadence has improved. But the speeches themselves are so godawful. Boring, boring, boring. I don't really understand it, either, because the governor really can be kind of funny. Who writes these freaking speeches? Have they ever read a good speech like this one? Or this one. Or, better yet, watched one?.
The difference, I think, is between telling people a story, making them care, versus just telling them stuff. Well, maybe my expectations are too high. Cause that never happens.
