The "in defense of internment" lady said something offensive. If you invite grotesque people to your panels, they are going to say grotesque things.

Even more hilarious is that plots from the show were derived from Sorkin's writing of The American President, which basically attacked the concept of "triangulation" as craven.

What's funny is that, at the time, conservatives complained because they said it made the Democrats out to be the good guys and Republicans as the bad guys.

As a teenager through college, I was a big fan of the show. I still have an election day ritual of putting on the election-related episodes on while working.
