Jon Stewart’s Commencement Address

I’m a big fan of Jon Stewart’s work on The Daily Show, so when someone mentioned at a BBQ this weekend that he was the commencement speaker at William and Mary this year, I went hunting to see if i could find a transcript. It wasn’t all that hard to find, theres quite a bit of buzz about it, becuase it’s both extremely funny, and extremely astute “Lets talk about the real world for a moment: … I’ll be blunt. We broke it.

I mean seriously, when was the last time you laughed while reading a speech that used the word “ennui” ?

    Despite a cheap personal shot at Bush, I think this is still an entertaining speech that focuses on the event and gives some basic advise to graduates in a humorous fashion. Funny how a comedian can get away with a few political jabs, with a wink and a smirk, than a “serious” speaker. I guess when most people see a joke mixed in with a political reference, it’s more disarming.
