Cody Keenan, president Obama’s chief speechwriter since last year, took over the official White House Instagram account last night to give folks a sneak peek at the State of the Union prep machine, which is just as high-octane as you might imagine.

All told it’s not all that thrilling #insideSOTU.” In anticipation of Tuesday night’s big speech White House staffers fill binders with research, stock up on coffee, hit the phones, decipher the president’s notes, and then eventually deliver a new “presidential statement” on a very official-looking tray.

Unfortunately there aren’t any snapshots of a befeathered Keenan, who famously dressed up as Captain Hook for a photo gag during Obama’s 2009 White House Correspondent’s Association speech. Anything for the boss, right?
