Trying a new thing here. Just for fun, going to post videos from the tube. That would be YouTube covering the Boob Tube. This is a TV blog. Enjoy...
TV Show: Scandal
Status: ABC, Thursday, 9:00 PM Eastern Time
**I watch this show for two reasons. One is that the characters are compelling because they are so flawed. Two is because this is a "politics" show and showcases very clearly, if you are watching for it, how the government wants you to think on the issues. Which is a good reason to make a 360 degree turn and go in the other direction. I really wish the clip of David Rosen as Attorney General was on YouTube. His entire case (arguing for the need of gun control) centered on the fact that The Constitution is/was an outdated document and that we should throw out in favor of what "the people" want today. Since "the people" are fairly evenly split 50-50 on this issue (which is a damn shame, in my humble opinion), and he was representing the 50% who shared HIS ideals, I think we should stick with the document that protects the liberties of ALL the people, instead of choosing what is fashionable "right now." Here's the thing, though.... This show has a huge audience, and anyone in favor of gun control likely thought that argument was "on-target"... pardon my pun... and they will likely be using it sometime in the near future. I hope they do it on Stephen T. McCarthy's blog, because I would really like to see that. However, when they aren't prattling on about liberal agenda politics, this show is actually pretty darn good. (Smelly Melly is slowly becoming my favorite character on this one.... hehehehe.)
