The Midterms

I watched episode 3 of series 2 of the West Wing last night. When Bartlet is making fund raising calls from the residence there's a rugby game playing on his TV. What is with the US Presidents and the game? No one else in the States seems to give a fig for it.

Something that consistently makes me laugh in the show is the way that the characters throw dialogue at one another as they march determinedly from one office to another.

I pity the poor camera operator scuttling along in reverse. It makes me think of a quote attributed to Ginger Rogers, "I did everything Fred Astaire did, only backwards and in high heels".
