Actually, here are some speeches I don't believe should begin with a shot of tequila.

  • The Gettysburg Address

    "Four-score and seven years ago -- Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr."

  • The State of the Union, even if the Union is in really excellent shape.
  • That Winston Churchill speech about fighting people on the land, and on the beaches, and never surrendering.
  • I Have A Dream speech
    "I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr."
  • George Washington's First Inaugural Address
  • Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You speech
  • Pericles' Funeral Oration
