At the Feet of the Master

A little while back I conjured up an imaginary conversation between John McCan't and some of his advisors regarding the selection of Sarah Palin. I dashed it off in about an hour late one night after hearing that the Arizona senator's first pick for VP was Joe Lieberman.

Yesterday, Maureen Dowd's commentary showcased an imaginary conversation between Barack Obama and fictional former President Jed Barlet of The West Wing, written by none other than Aaron Sorkin himself.

Key for me was the idea of taking back the words 'elite' and 'patriot' from McCan't and wearing them like badges of honor instead of fending them off like the enemy's sword.
