Bill Whittle’s Virtual Presidential Inaugural Address
Back in November, I wrote about the possibility that—much to the delight of conservatives—Bill Whittle might run for president, or virtual president at least. (That post is reprinted below for your convenience.)
Brilliant, as always. This, like all of Whittle’s speeches, is well worth your time.
Most of us have experienced this: You’re in one of those bad dreams where something horrible has happened—you wake up, and after you shake off the dream and the sleep and you realize that it was just a dream, you are so relieved.
Most have also experienced the reverse: You’re having a wonderful dream where something great has happened, and then you wake up and discover it isn’t real. Not that your waking life is necessarily bad, but the dream was really nice.
About halfway through the video below, I thought to myself, “Oh no, this is going to be one of those things where by the end, I will have become convinced that Bill Whittle IS the president, and then I will have to “wake up” and remember that Obama actually is. A beautiful dream, a waking nightmare.
But then, near the end, Whittle—while not saying that he will run for president—does indicate that he will run for virtual president. To understand what that means, you simply have to watch. And you should watch this video all the way through, because it is brilliant. Whittle is amazing in his Afterburner and Firewall videos, but that amazingness could simply be scripted and well-delivered. This is Whittle off the cuff, answering questions from a pretend press corps as if he were the president. And it really is incredible to hear.
Seriously . . . . well worth your time!
