Cruel White House Forces Cabinet Members To Role Play 'West Wing' All Day Long
Taking a cue from the Best Fictional President Ever (be quiet, Editrix, he was so!), the Obama administration held a "Virtual Big Block of Cheese Day" Wednesday in a blatant ploy to make West Wing fans go "Squeeeee!"
The idea is a nod to an actual historical event, when supporters presented Andrew Jackson with a 1400-pound cheese and Jackson invited people to come eat the damn thing. In two episodes of The West Wing, White House staffers meet with representatives of marginalized interest groups like UFO enthusiasts, environmentalists asking for a wildlife corridor to help wolves migrate, and of course the earnest map geeks of Cartographers For Social Justice.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
