This is why you never have to worry what you’re going to write next: other people give you ideas. I know you could lose your mind scrolling back over my posts – they spool back so endlessly, to the time when Bush was President – but if you have it in you go back just two posts and read where the seeds of today’s are.
The topic was Presidential politics, a subject one witty commenter weighed in on.
“Sure, I read the papers, watch the news, follow the issues… but when it comes to casting my ballot I usually end up voting for the guy who reminds me most of Martin Sheen on The West Wing. Man he was a great President…!”
And that is so true I realized. He WAS a great president and then he also had that nice slightly blousy wife he couldn’t really control…
He had Bradley Whitford as the cute right-hand man Josh Lyman. (That’s Josh on the right.)
He had our friend John Spencer keeping everyone on track all since the long-ago days of LA Law. There was smart lugubrious Toby always quoting from the Constitution and Rob Lowe who hasn’t been out of work a single day since that time immediately post his star turn in Wayne’s World when he got caught in some sort of videotaped swinger situation. (It’s Teflon with men when it comes to swinger situations, ever notice? Try being a woman involved in such hijinks though. The double standard lives!)
Anyway it was a great time in America when we could tune in to that show every week – even though the fast-talk as they speed-walked through the White House corridors did make you so dizzy you almost passed out. My brother-in-law used to say he fell asleep like clockwork every week between the West and the Wing.
Yeah… Those were the days all right… and speaking of Rob Lowe and P.O.T.U.S as they all so cleverly referred to the President of the United States, how about we see what Mike Myers is doing for the next four years? Wouldn’t Mike-as-Wayne make a dandy president? At least the music would be good!
