The West Wing (or not)

January 18, 2011

I was a fan of The West Wing (up until the last couple of seasons, anyway). I loved the pace of the action. I loved how serious, smart and committed people were always working defending principles and wrestling through issues related to governing the country. The president was always the smartest guy in the room, and left-of-center politics aside, seemed to really want to do the right thing. I remember one critic saying of the show, “It is the White House we wish we had.” The writing, acting, direction and production were all top drawer. As I said, I was a fan.

In real life, of course, the White House is not as glamorous. In this audio recording, LBJ orders some pants.

This is the White House we did have.
