In case you don't know, I LOVE The West Wing. And by love, I mean, I fully believe that it is the best show ever on television - past, present, or future. It is well-written, witty, intelligent, and it speaks to our better selves. Plus, the characters are rich and represent all the folks I hope are always running our country and Bradley Whitford's portrayal of Josh Lyman is over-the-top the sexiest man in the entire world.
One of my favorite scenes from Season 1 is when Press Secretary C.J. Cregg does The Jackal. The title of this post is a line said by Sam Seaborn (Rob Lowe) to Mallory McGarry (Leo's daughter). This is brilliant.
I miss The West Wing, but am comforted by the fact that we now have grown-ups running the country.
