Since I’m not noticeably better, I worked from home for a bit this morning, then crashed. And I finished the West Wing rewatch. I still think it is a remarkable series. I still want to live in an America where Jed Bartlett could be president and then re-elected, where Matt Santos could become president. Today, they would probably be viewed as DINOs, and couldn’t be elected to be rat catchers. So much of the rhetoric is the same, the arguments are the same; it is very difficult to think we’ve been stuck here for 15 years.
