COMMANDER IN CHIEF
Many listeners have phoned the show to ask me if the new television show which features Geena Davis playing the role of a female president is an overt attempt to promote the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. Up until now I've said that while the show will certainly help the American people accept the idea of a female president, I didn't really think that was the design or intention. Well ... now we have more information. Now we learn that the creator of the program has said that he will take credit by claiming that the show helped if Hillary is elected.
On the program Geena Davis makes references to Hillary. One of the show's writers is Steve Cohen. Cohen was Hillary's communications director when she was First Lady. Hillary's social secretary is also a special advisor to the program. So .. my answer now is "yes." "Commander in Chief" is and was designed to be a prime-time promotion of the candidacy of Hillary Clinton for president of the United States.
Did you see where Sandy "Sox" Berger has hired on as a show consultant?
The Republicans should demand equal time.
When Hillary loses, will he take responsibility for his show leading to her defeat? Now *that's* a question I would have loved to ask.
Just how many pounds was Geena forced to pack on to give her the appearance of Hilly??
Televise Hillary's criminal trial for commodities fraud.
Can we get a lawyer to sue on the basis of McCain-Feingold ?</sarcasm>
A lot of folks I know love this show. I won't watch it; afraid for my pressure. I think, now, that it is a big Hil boost. Time will tell.
Wow, you haven't watched The West Wing in a couple of years, have you? Say what you will about Aaron Sorkin, but the show pretty well jumped the shark when he left. It has occasional OK episodes now and then, but the party's over.
Now what will the Clinton WH leftovers do? They're sure not going to be able to strech TWW all the way out 'til the campaign.
For some reason, Hillary Clinton does NOT spring to mind when I see Geena Davis. And Donald Sutherland is a riot as the Speaker...
Just emailed a copy to the FEC.
Have you actually WATCHED the show? They made of Hillary's role as co-president in the first episode. They also made fun of her having a staff of 20 as First Lady.
At least watch the program before drawing a conclusion.
Or it could be a new show altogether if Vinnick (Alan Alda) wins this season...
Nah, I was being sarcastic. The West Wing is relevent as, um, Alley McBeal.
Our Mia T did a nice write up on this.
Why ABC's "Commander-in-Chief" is a Condi Rice clone
She even point out that Mackenzie Allen looks like Condi Rice.
I thought of that, too. Also, the President whom she took over for when he died was a Republican.
