Thanks for the links! I told Dymphna that the speech must be out on the web somewhere.

Got me. But, if you want to pursue it, these were compiled by Stephen E. Lucas (University of Wisconsin-Madison) and Martin J. Medhurst (Baylor University).

You can contact them here per the associated press release:

"For more information about text, survey results and film clips, contact Lucas at (608) 238-6657; or Medhurst at (409) 845-0208;"

I'd be interested to see their response as well.
