. GREETINGS !!! I remember (back in the day...) as if it were only yesterday..... It sure doesn't seem like it was four-and-a-half years ago, but it was. It was December 8th, 2004 (one day after Pearl Harbor Rememberance Day) and I was watching one of my all-time favorite television programs, "The West Wing" (on NBC). It was The West Wing's sixth award-winning season and the eighth episode of the season was being broadcast (Live! In Living Color!). The name of the episode was, "In The Room". The "In The Room" plot went something like this : Aboard Air Force One, Pesident Bartlet (Martin Sheen) is stricken by a paralyzing MS episode, while Josh Lyman (Bradley Whitford) is approached to run the Vice President's presidential campaign. The Bartlet Administration offers Republican California Senator Arnold Vinick (Alan Alda) the position of the US Ambassador to the UN, but he turns it down and announces his candidacy for the Presidency instead. Governor Baker (Ed O'Neill) drops out of the Democratic nomination race, making Vice-President Robert "Bingo Bob" Russell (Gary Cole) the clear front-runner. Now all that is "all well and good", but that's NOT what makes this one of my favorite episodes, and it's also NOT the reason "why" this episode was one of the series' more "contoversial" ones. SO . . . . . . What's the BIG deal ? Penn & Teller, the "Dynamic Duo of Magic", BURN an American FLAG right there in the White House at the end of their magic act during the birthday party for the First Family's youngest daughter, Zoey !!! Anyway, I'd recently gotten to thinking about that particular incident in that episode and I wanted to see it again, so I went looking for it. And I FOUND it on YouTube !
