If you ever wanted to know what shameless self promotion looks like, just watch Michelle Obama’s 2012 DNC speech.
She said the words "I" and "Me" 83 times. In a 25 minute speech, that comes out to be once every 18 seconds.
Shameless self promoter!
In her address to the Democratic Convention Tuesday evening, First Lady Michelle Obama used the words “I” or “me” 83 times, an average of more than three self-references a minute during her 25 minute speech.
The emphasis on herself is of note not only because of the strikingly personal nature of the speech, but because of the remarkable suggestion by the first lady that her political views and those of her husband arise much from their own experiences than a reasoned assessment of policies and facts.
The Dossier points out, however, that even Ann Romney self indulged a bit. But she only referred to herself 60 times.
