SOTU World Clouds

Fast Company has compiled a word cloud of the President's State of the Union address last night, comparing it to last year's SOTU and Michelle Bachmann's response. ("State of the Union address shows Obama thinking about people," by Kit Eaton)

In contrast, NPR has posted "The State of the Union in your words," showing word clouds of what people heard by various demographics. A common theme: salmon.

To see exactly what the president said, a transcript is available online.

Vastly entertaining for word geeks and politicos.
