My favorite SNL sketch of all time for three reasons: 1. Billy Joel’s “Goodnight Saigon” 2. Tom Hanks on the sax 3. Will Ferrell being so awesome to share the stage with not only the whole cast but past hosts and musical guests. AMAZING! heytinafey: this is the best
School Shooting In Ohio
My heart sank when I saw this headline run across the bottom of Fox News today. Attending school in Ohio, I feared something had happened at my alma mater.

Bertram Coles - "A Proportional Response"
Leo McGarry - Oh, here's one you'll like. Bertram Coles --
Jed Bartlet - Oh, I like anything that starts with 'Bertram Coles'. Let's have it.
Leo - Coles goes on the radio yesterday and he says people in his district love America and you better not come down there cause you might not get out alive.

Bartlet - Ziegler must be ballistic.
Leo - Toby is on it.

BRITISH EMPIRE: All right, fine, your stupid embargo worked. We won’t levy any more taxes-
AMERICAN COLONIES: Huzzah! Time to get drunk!
BRITISH EMPIRE: Except on tea.
AMERICAN COLONIES: What?
BRITISH EMPIRE: Get over it, it’s just tea. Seriously, where do you get this idea that you’re special and should never have to pay taxes? We hope that idea doesn’t go on to infect your political discourse centuries from now.

BRITISH EMPIRE: Fine, whatever, we don’t even care what you do anymore.
BRITISH EAST INDIA COMPANY: Actually, we are pretty much bankrupt, so you need to make them drink the tea.
BRITISH EMPIRE: Oh, for—just drink the tea.

BRITISH EMPIRE: Drink it or we’ll punch you in the face.
AMERICAN COLONIES: *Boston Tea Party*
BRITISH EMPIRE: What the hell?
AMERICAN COLONIES: We heard it was Indians.
BRITISH EMPIRE: That’s interesting, because we heard it was a bunch of colonists wearing paint and dressed in costumes that were remarkably similar to what a crowd of drunks who wanted to look like Indians would assemble if the only supplies they had were found in an alley behind a bar.
AMERICAN COLONIES: You get all types in Boston.
BRITISH EMPIRE: …*Coercive Acts*
AMERICAN COLONIES: Oh, it is ON.
Ike Graham: You do not want to go to Annapurna! Maggie Carpenter: Yes I do!– Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in “Runaway Bride”
I never want to see Gibbs turn on Abby ever again. Imagined or not.
Sam Seaborn: How can you have an objection to something that says… ...– Love this exchange about the Equal Rights Amendment. One of Aaron Sorkin’s greatest ideas for The West Wing was to bring on Ainsley as a Republican to off-set the heavy liberal ideals preached by the rest of the cast.
