Wake Up and Stop Sucking, Carolyn Vaughn

by William Henneberger

As I work my way through all seven seasons of The West Wing for the fifth or sixth time, I still find myself inspired watching these brilliant characters (birthed from genius writers and tremendous actors) always trying to do the right thing. I usually align my reprise screenings of this particular show with major election cycles since it tends to get me riled up about the state of current state as well as national and local affairs. When I watch The West Wing, I find myself wondering, where are the brilliant characters of my reality, of my state, country and city. The assholes are plainly visible in these systems, but where are the Josh Lymans, and the Sam Seaborns? I’d abandon my children for a real life C.J. Cregg. The only person I know that comes close, did his part for years and is basically retired. If you don’t get what I am talking about, or if you’d like to increase your IQ by a few points, hit me up for my Netflix password and watch this show.
