Last Friday, Jay Inslee released an Earth Day video. We’re only getting around to writing about it now because we’ve been laughing so hard since we saw it.
You see, it didn’t go over too well. Check out the video below and see if you can spot the peculiarities of Jay’s effort.

In total, the video only lasts 1 minute and 50 seconds. Yet, there are 11 obvious edits while he is talking, not including several more cutaways to stock footage that – in all likelihood – hide even more edits.
To put his blunders in perspective, Inslee had to be edited on average once every 10 seconds. This is Inslee’s marquee issue, and yet he doesn’t appear capable of speaking clearly for more than 10 seconds at a time about it.
Making it all more pathetic, one must assume that Inslee was using a teleprompter, which means that our green governor was also struggling to read the words his staff had written.
It would appear that the hours Inslee has spent practicing reading with his staff have not paid off.
Unless you count the payoff as adding laughter to our day…and now yours.
