Former Senator Fred Thompson is starring in a TV ad to explain the case for invading Iraq counter to Martin ‘Left Wing’ Sheen’s anti-war ad.
In an interview with a local Memphis newspaper, Thompson did not hide his disdain for what he considers WEST WING’s preachy liberalism. "I’ve been thinking about the possibility of having my character run against Martin Sheen (Bartlet) for president," Thompson declared.
My vote is with Fred. I stopped watching West Wing (even though I’d just started) when they painted James Brolin’s Republican character as an uncaring dullard. I’d rather watch a show that doesn’t insult me, thank you very much. Aaron Sorkin may be a talented writer, but his talent is often put behind his ideological blinders.
