This is a blog about a brilliant tv show called The West Wing and for real politics. The real politics will be tagged with, "irl" while the TWW posts will be tagged with the name of the character and hopefully the episode too.
"Although Sorkin is at NBC headquarters, he is present here in spirit - in the form of a three-man mariachi band he hired to serenade the cast outside the sound stage upon their 2 p.m. return from lunch. “Did Aaron do this?” asks Bradley Whitford (deputy chief of staff Josh Lyman) before grabbing Allison Janney (press secretary C.J. Cregg) for a dance in the street. Says Janney, 'I’d do anything for Aaron.'"
“Josh doesn’t leave people. You have to get Josh. His sister died in a fire while she was babysitting him. She tried to put it out, he ran outside. He went off campaigning, his father died. He wakes up in a hospital and discovers the President’s been shot. He goes through every day worrying that somebody he likes is gonna die and it’s gonna be his fault. What do you think makes him walk so fast?”
