The Guardian has a nice interactive graph of every State of the Union by length and reading level. George Washington’s address, at 1,083 words, is shorter than most of our magazine articles. Jimmy Carter stands out as an outlier with a total length of 33,287 words. (Though it was delivered in writing, so luckily no one had to sit through the hours it would take Carter to drone through it in his southern drawl.)
