Here’s a cool resource page: American Rhetoric, an online database of speechs of every type.  It also delves into the history of rhetoric, as well as providing quizzes to test your speech-y knowledge.  The movie speeches are cool, but I think my favorite part is browsing through all the the political speeches.  It’s nice to be reminded that there was a time when politicians were literate and compelling speakers.

    “I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.”

    FDR – Dec. 8th 1941
