as you can see...lots getting done today:-D

However, Sorkin wrote a diddy about Obama meeting with President Bartlet. It humoruos, really, really, laugh under your breath in the library while someone turns and looks at you strange funny. Or at least to me...But here is my favorite passage in the entire op-ed:

Because the idea of American exceptionalism doesn’t extend to Americans being exceptional. If you excelled academically and are able to casually use 690 SAT words then you might as well have the press shoot video of you giving the finger to the Statue of Liberty while the Dixie Chicks sing the University of the Taliban fight song. The people who want English to be the official language of the United States are uncomfortable with their leaders being fluent in it.

Mostly the Dixie Chicks Taliban University bit, but it's funnier becuase I can imagine Martin Sheen saying it (even more so because of his appearance as Bartlet on the Emmys last night)

Full Piece
