The New York Times has put together a word cloud indicating the most common words used in speeches at the Republican Convention (I assume they’ll continue to add to it as the Convention goes on).

It’s interesting now, but it’s really going to be useful in class after they presumably do the same for next week’s Democratic Convention. The lesson possibilities for comparing the two are endless!

I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The 2012 U.S. Presidential Election.
