The West Wing

Republican Senator Arnie Vinick on The West Wing:

"I don't see how we can have a separation of Church & State in this government, if you have to pass a religious test, to get in this government. And I want to warn everyone in the press & all the voters out there, If you demand expressions of religious faith from politicians, you are just begging to be lied to. They won't all lie to you, but a lot of them will, and it will be the easiest lie they ever had to tell to get your votes. So every day until the end of this campaign, I will answer any question anyone has on government, but if you have a question on Religion...Please go to church. Thank You."
Talk about being jolted back to reality. What are the chances of any senator in real life saying something like that?

Washington Whispers says the White House isn't amused.

I haven't seen The West Wing regularly since Aaron Sorkin left, but these last few weeks have been gripping, if reality challenged, television.

In tonight's final episode, it's a free for all at the Democratic Convention between Santos, Russell and spoiler Baker. President Bartlett is coming in to anoint a successor.

My bet's on Santos. Santos versus Vinick. It's going to be a tough fight and an interesting new season.
