Obama's Speechwriter/Stand-Up Comedian Gives A Graduation Speech. Not Surprisingly, It's Badass.

Jon Lovett (skip the intro by going straight to 1:19) is not your average commencement speaker, and his speech very much reflects that. Seriously. For instance, the first two and a half minutes are about what being a young, gay judge might be like. Make sure to check out 7:11 for a swear word and some stone-cold truth, and skip to 9:57 if you're 23 years old and want to be taken down a peg.
