West Wing Fantasies

Tonight is the series finale of West Wing. That hour a week where we can imagine a different world.

A more bitter sweet fantasy was broadcast last night in the opening sketch of SNL last night: An Oval Office Address from Al Gore. (The show was hosted by Julia Louis-Dreyfus with cameos by Jason Alexander and Jerry Seinfeld. If you didn't catch it last night- put it on your palatable re-runs list for this summer.)

Back in Sureality, while a 29% approval rating is hopeful (it's about time!), the power of the 29% is still strong. Why else would McCain be wasting his time (and moderate status) at "Liberty" "University"?

Ok, the Al Gore bit is one of the funniest SNLs I have EVER seen. Thank you for the much needed laugh CD2E.

I guess the good thing about not having President Santos is that we don't have to endure First Lady Santos.

I'm sad to read that Jimmy Carter also had an approval rate in the 20s. He is Bushy are not in the same class at all! Could it be the gas prices?

Interesting, I like the First Lady Santos character. JB's Mother does not.
