State Of The Union Quote, Or Words Uttered By A TV Character? Time To Test Your Political Know-How
We're almost here. President Obama's 2015 State of the Union address is right around the corner, and if there's one thing you can be sure of, it's this: you're going to be hearing a ton of soundbites in the hours and days following. These sorts of speeches are practically made to be diced up into smaller, component parts, inserted into stories and news items on any of the myriad proposals that Obama will be pitching to Congress — and, of course, to the nation.
But when you break major speeches and presidential moments into such small little pieces, something can get lost — namely, your ability to distinguish between real presidential rhetoric, and the work of some of the entertainment industry's finest imitators. Do you think you can tell the difference between a real presidential quote, and something whipped up in a writer's room someplace? Here's your chance.
