Greg lets the news stories do the work. His news collage:


THE PRESIDENT: I signed that law. But Senator Kerry was part of an out-of-the-mainstream minority that voted against the ban. In the course of this campaign, he said the heart and soul of America can be found in Hollywood.
AUDIENCE: Booo!
THE PRESIDENT: No, most American families do not look to Hollywood as a source of values. The heart and soul of America is found in places like Alamogordo, New Mexico. (Applause.)
THE PRESIDENT: And at one time in his campaign, he said the heart and soul of America can be found in Hollywood.
AUDIENCE: Booo!
THE PRESIDENT: Most of our families don't look to Hollywood as a source of values. The heart and soul of America is found in communities like Orlando, Florida. (Applause.)
Blah, blah, blah...
