Nah, I was being sarcastic. The West Wing is relevent as, um, Alley McBeal.
Have you ever noticed that these shows are totally boring (the left-wing President shows) ...
... until they are in the situation room ordering up an air strike against some-Saddam-wanna-be-dictator.
Just noting the left-wing Presidents are supposed to be doves but the show is only good when the left-wing President adopts a right-wing Presidential role.
