Fuck off, Wayne ... you've officially worn out your welcome here. You have your own blog, so why don't you use it?

ooooh, snap!

Thanks for the reminder CC. I have that season and I may just watch some select episodes and chuckle at the brilliance of its script, such as the smack-down scene that you just shared with us.

BTW, from Sadly, No! we hear an update about Five Feet of selF-inFlated Flatulence ...

i wouldn't mind wayne's stupid remarks so much if he were saying something he actually believed.

At about 3:20 his says "Toby, that's how ..... (and I can't catch the last few words). Do any of you know what they are?

Thanks in advance if you do and can tell me.

p.s. great script, I never had time to get into the show, looks like I missed a good series.

CC said...

What he says is, "That's how I beat him." If I recall correctly (and I might not be), there had been an earlier conversation as to how Bartlet had beat his last presidential opponent. I think the point being made is that he did it by levelling a savage verbal smackdown.

Others are free to correct me on this.

By the way, if you're an Aaron Sorkin fan, I recommend the TV series "Sports Night."

Frank Frink said...

I'll second the recommend on "Sports Night". Unfortunately axed after only two seasons. Starred Peter Krause pre-"Six Feet Under".

Awwww, Cynic, mufffin.

Did Wayne annoy you by pointing out that Martin Sheen's speech wasn't a tirade against Christianity, but against intolerance?

The same kind of denunciation that could very well be applied to your entire site?

Yeah, I wouldn't be too shocked if you were offended by that notion. Unfortunately for you, it's true.

Now why don't you just go ahead and delete this, too.

That's a good little intellectual coward.

*yawn*

And if anyone knows intolerance, it's our favourite corpulent, mullet-sporting concern troll.

Have you seen a doctor about those delusions of adequacy yet, Patsy? Admitting you have a problem is half the battle.

Wrong again, Peatrick.

I watched that episode yesterday and the point of the scene is that talk show hostess did not secure her PhD in theology, medicine or psychology yet pontificates on these topics. She also exploits selected quotes from the Bible to bolster her ersatz expertise - and that is how Bartlett demonstrates her morally depraved use of text and scripture to advance her agenda and career.

By the way, CC, the opponent in question was a candidate for school district councillor in New Hampshire, very early on in Bartlett's political career.

For the first time in a while I'm sorry I don't watch TV.

Because that was a brilliant verbal smackdown of the ignorant revolutionaries masquerading as conservatives these days.

Josef said...

Great clip of a great fable I quote from time to time.

Chimera said...

Romantic Heretic, I don't watch TV, either. I got to watch the entire seven seasons of West Wing on DVD borrowed through the public library. It's probably available wherever you live.

And yes, it is brilliant. On my list of things to buy...

Thank you, CC!
