2. I remember seeing this West Wing episode and thinking two things:

1. I'll bet Alan Alda had to go home and take a shower after playing a Grover-Norquist Republican all day, and

2. With messaging geniuses like Aaron Sorkin on our side, HOW can the Democrats be so INCREDIBLY SHITTY at campaigning????


I remember thinking, if REAL Democratic Party candidates said ONE TENTH of the clever things that the FAKE Democrats on West WIng say every day, they'd never lose another election.
