The President's Loyal Speechwriter

Good article in the New Yorker about George W. Bush’s loyal speechwriter Michael Gerson. Speechwriters are an interesting breed since their choice of words can literally shape a vision or policy or attitude. Gerson was the one who choice the phrase "axis of evil," a phrase that has stuck with Bush for years.

Someday I will read a serious memoir by a presidential or corporate speechwriter; in the meantime, I’ll make do with having one of my favorite books Clinton & Me on my shelf. Mark Katz was the humor speechwriter for Clinton and Core and is absolutely hilarious.
