"In fact, he's just. The person who happens to buy in to the arguments that the all these political advisors are making he gets it and he has his objections, but he also doesn't need to be spoon. Fed a kind of campaign strategy one one in order to go out there and do the pandering that needs to be done for set on this ethanol speech don't worry recital. Take the pledge. Yeah, that's right. In a sense. I could almost although it wasn't a real focus of this episode. I could a little bit see because I was looking for what will sees in Russell in terms of this one microcosmic issue. We've heard we'll say before Russell might be the next president of the United States you get in. Now, you can make him the candidate. You want him to be after that we make them the president. We need them to be. And that's sort of like, that's what this you know, that John wells quote was about. Yeah. Get him in office. And then start doing the good things that you'll know her right and good and will Bailey at least have someone who's gonna play ball into understands that. That approach right? Whether or not that's admirable. He's he's got what he needs. And what he's looking for. Josh Lyman MSN seemed to have never had a very basic conversation. I know I kind of said this before. But again, Josh seems to be misreading or forgetting what caught him up in the Santos orbit in the first place or with the aura Santa's he's not that guy. He just isn't that guy. And even though he even does it you can see and it's a good performance. You can see it in Santa's face when he stands up there and reads from the teleprompters, basically gritting his teeth. This is not look like a happy guy. This someone is taken his medicine and Josh Lyman should have made that read by now and on top of it. The candidate's wife is also making clear that that's not what she's a bad. It's not what Santa's is about. What are they doing? What do they get into this for you know, it's like Josh has got to take a deep breath and figure out whether we can work with this guy in some ways admire Russell because he doesn't you don't have to waste all. That time they sort of have these philosophical arguments about why is the Iowa caucus even important, you know, and this is the board and how you're gonna play it. I guess it feels like it should be played at a more sophisticated level than what we're dealing with here. Although I like I said I liked this episode a lot just in terms of the actual mechanics of like making a campaign here, you are at the Iowa caucus in deciding, you know, yeah. No. I split. I eventually just let go yes. I had to to enjoy the episode rather than continuing to write down, essentially what you're saying. Like, the aren't they're not past this point. And I just decided, you know, in its own terms something interesting going on between Santos. And Josh there's they've already even had that moment where Joshua's like, wait a minute. Are you not even in this to win it right out here to do something? And they really should be past that point. Now, come down to one strategy. Are we going to do the politically expedient things that we need to do in order to try to mount a serious campaign for the presidency? Are you just trying to make a statement in which case, I think would Josh? Would've been on board with coming out to Iowa. And you know, speaking out against ethanol. Yeah. Let me also add another layer of ambiguity to the story line. Because there is this kind of aspect to it. That's taken for granted that like ethanol equals bad. Right. But there is a little bit more nuance to it than that. And you know, this episode not surprisingly pissed off the actual ethanol industry who pointed out that the episode got a lot of things wrong. It hasn't improved that much in the very recent past, but from the nineties when this energy sink that Russell describes actually was the case till two thousand five there were actually a lot of improvements..

"It would you. Compare your dynamic at all to the Josh Lyman, Matt Santa Steinem acc-. Do you butt heads at all like those at the shelf the education plan you have to swallow the Mayflower Kwa. You want me to introduce myself to the electorate as a flip flop as opposed to a piece of political test. Yes, I do. Smoother than that. But it certainly the case that, you know, part of the job of a campaign staff that you hire is to tell you whether you want to hear them or not and often as their jobs, unless you know, what's expected of you. And then your job to decide how much you're willing to conform to that. It's often occurred to me that all the ways in which you can form in any profession, not just politics, but all the ways in which you can form to what's expected of you the sum total of that becomes your professionalism end in all the ways in which you decide not inform the sum, total of that becomes your style. That's really well. Put I know that there's a ton of preparation that must have gone on over the past couple years leading up to this point your book, shortest way, home in some ways feels like a great precursor for your bid and all the other steps that might have come up. But I'm sure there are things you just can't prepare for. So in light of that. What's one or two of the things that you've faced so far now that you've been doing the retail, politics, and traveling and talk shows and all that stuff that maybe caught you completely by surprise. Have any been any total surprises, especially because I have a team in stunning. Very good job of anticipating issues in preparing me. Whether it's tactically or just psychologically, if anything's gone better than we hope to you know, we're going to die away. You know, some team members were I think trying to kind of prepare my ego little bit. And they're saying look is not unusual for these. I stop in state that you might have more reporters than you have voters and in the end that didn't happen, which is great. But it isn't did I would have been ready. But in the end, we had we had good crowds better than I could have hoped a bunch of days like that we days when you organiz campaign staff member, you know, you organized what you think is going to be a big event, and you wind up with like three people wondering where the soda machine is. And you just have to be ready for anything. The only thing that I guess is surprising tiny step into the arena. You're surprised by the people who help you the people who don't sometimes somebody's been a longtime friend, and you get along well with them, but for whatever reasons on their side, they're not prepared to be very involved in in this particular effort of yours and another times people you barely. I know people you didn't even think like you come out of the woodwork and just put everything they have on the table in order to help you get to your goal. And so those prizes. Most of which are pleasant ones are among those. I think every candidate learns to absorb this as you get onto trail if people want to help or they wanna support what should they do peoper, America dot com? That's the quickest place to go. It was pretty basic. Now, it's just a slash page. But if you can share your Email address, that's a how keep in touch with the on Rosso, of course, collecting contributions, the DNC said if you wanna get invited to the debate you gotta have at least sixty five thousand individual contributors now good news says this isn't about massive chats. This isn't the two thousand dollars that the you know, the character gives to Josh Lyman not that we'd be upset if somebody thought moved to do that. But five bucks goes toward me being able to show that we have that kind of grassroots support in hopefully earning a podium on that debate stage down the line. And of course to stay tuned. Keep an eye on us on social media..

"You were not allowed to leave. You hadn't read a paper come to the table. You can come to table or you couldn't talk. If you had not read the paper or listen to the news, and I would say yes excel. There was one other thing was you would never bring shame to the family which meant to fail. So yes, you are expected to exceed excel make your Mark in life. But you could not bring chain. Into the family by having failed. That's a lot of pressure. You telling me, I'm still dealing with. I know I know you know that. But you know, what? And I also think a lot of people talk about my parents, my parents are what are your mother? Do. I both. Did it my grandparents? The other thing was also. Being the a family of immigrants and grant grip. And I mean by that is immigrants have a certain edge because of the sacrifices struggle. You gave up things you gave up you where you knew you gave up family gave up a relationships the known for the unknown and the kids of immigrants release SARS. And I think I see with a lot frequency as mayor. You are not allowed to be frivolous with that. You're not allowed take all things that people didn't you know, I run into families all the time. He was trained as doctors. Now, a taxi driver their children are exceeding because you cannot be frivolous to sacrifice struggle your parents went through. So we can joke about our worth joking about we all talk about it. I sometimes I say lost his finger at my hand up there. I lost that avenue. You would that is like an editing device because that's that that finger that finger fully engaged would've gotten you into a lot more fights than even you. Over hem Las that in an accident arby's. So your brother Zeke is a world class medical ethicists colleges. Your brother Ari? Yeah. Is a is not just a Hollywood agent. He was the model for entourage the character central character entourage in. He was there was some doubt about him. When he was a kid. He had learning disabilities. Some people thought he wouldn't go to college. Well, two things one is. When there was the west wing show, an entourage on one character and west wing being based on me one on on Josh Lyman writer, so we used to say Zeke where show like what have you done for the family? We haven't done anything. You've embarrassed the family. There's nothing about you. And he would have the first born of a Jewish family very special and take comfort now to. And your younger, brother. Z? Can I talk about this talk with Ari here? You have a kid with learning disabilities. Dyslexia attention deficit disorder, and he finds himself in a career that requires reading scripts. You'd get up at four three thirty in the morning..

"And now he's at the place where we think that he would already be. He took some knocks, but he's coming away with these life lessons about, you know, the tough world and it's like, well, you should know some of this stuff already, but there are also lessons that he learns in this that I do. And I, I like even the fact that he didn't learn at the first or second or third time, and those are the ones that are the more specific lessons maybe like the fact that he is completely underestimated Ryan. Pearson said every single step of the way. Yeah. And what Lawrence O'Donnell told us, which is that Ryan Pierce is the younger Josh Lyman and hates him for it. But he also continually underestimates the guy and so he has to learn that lesson again. I think that's great that he's still hasn't learned it. I agree. I also think it's well handled the human face of what are just usually numbers knocked around. I liked the idea of the CWA guy coming and Plum. Being down these two people and saying they're going to stay right here to tell them how he planned. Yeah, and I thought that was handled well, and then I liked how that's the sort of macro, you know, prisoner Bartlett's talking about numbers and seventeen thousand here, but you get thirty thousand more jobs there. But what about these two people that we now have names and faces for that are sitting Josh's office? I like that. And then on the micro level, Josh seems to be kind of seeing Donna for the first time in a way where she's just been kind of a job description to him. I mean, never mind whatever's going on romantically personally, you know, he takes the lesson, the hard knock lessons that he's getting on the trade deal, kind of absorbs it, processes it on a personal level and treats Donna better. Here's or maybe kinda Caesar for the first time in which he's trying to say as regards her job. Yeah, you know what one thing I love about this episode is that it brings up a lot. I have pages and pages of notes about this episode, but I also had. A hard time organizing them because I couldn't quite feel like I knew how to organize my thoughts about this episode in general. Yeah, I feel the same way to, you know, politics is messy. And so this episode, Joe certain extent, and so is my you know, reaction to it agree. There's a lot of really good stuff going on there. There is no way to wrap up. Everything that's brought up in this. We haven't even touched on the second CJ right up the plot yet. There's no way to wrap this up in a perfect little bow and or should it be in the course of a single episode of the west wing? Yeah, I think there's really some really beautiful things being mirrored in the different plots. The CJ plotline does dovetail really nicely in with the free trade agreement. Yes. And Donna's frustration with her own job really dovetails nicely with the free trade agreement. I agree and Ryan changing his position. All of these things I think are wonderfully connected to one another. I wish the title where something different. I feel like that would help give. Me some kind of organizing possible around this to me. I think everything about this episode is about power and about a consolidation of power at the top and the lack of power, the low, and they're just being sort of this unbreachable divide between the two. And I think Donna is feeling stuck, just want growing job to something meaningful to more than MC patient till I die. I used to one career and I wanted to manner more be soda jerk. That's my talking. Josh really callously it seems. I think if I were her, I would think like what the hell just cuts her off. I know that his initial responses rough. It's really brutal, but I think at that moment he's not responding to Donna. She's suddenly standing in for the CWA worker who's also in his office still saying, I don't want my career to be over want burial insurance. My career isn't over yet..

"Perhaps actors because all actors are the same as we now i will stipulate to that that actors would like halloween more than most because they love dressing up as the people a soup gear turning themselves in two other characters that's what they do i yet and so here's a chance to determine your own fate in that way and really go wild yes i think i i sent missile apart from the heard in many ways from actors i don't think i have a burning near compulsive desire to draw attention to myself the most do and so yes sure i think actors enjoy their halloween i encourage everyone to dress up as josh for halloween that skagen this going to be too late so if you didn't do it right you and if you did if you want to take a quick shouted and now just in the privacy of your own home and shooters picture please do you told me once when i suggested viewing doing some david rosen caused play that all it took was a suit and some old person mega and by the way if you want to know what the full david rosen caused play outfit is it's a hugo boss suit and oldage makeup that was in episode seven i believe of this podcast if you wanna come back another thing that i like in this episode is that benyosef doesn't know the difference between idaho and iowa sure and there was a moment from past episode that also really liked i like when people casually don't know things in the west wing for show where everybody knows so much where josh lyman can quote critique of practical reason off the top of his head i liked these moments where people don't know one of the other moments at i liked that we didn't talk about an in our last episode but i love this bit where leo asks jordan about trees playing going down you remember last may that a private plane carrying defense minister abdolsharif went down there bermuda and that all the passengers including sharief were dead now.

"That version of josh lyman for his uncle fluffy the guy who's just there to to do the job and and make sure everything goes smoothly when other i think rich in layered seen as a beautiful performance by alisyn on the phone early on in the episode a with her dead yet there's reversal i always say phones or my favorite biggest does nobody else in the scene but it does actually make them difficult because uh well in the best of all worlds i mean when you're doing a phone cnn in which you actually hear the other half of the conversation usually the actor involved in any filming situation where people take the art itself seriously you actually have the other actor on the line speaking to you she is doing a phone call which is entirely her ray at emotionallyfraught and she's giving an incredible performance where we are of these in my experience of watching it and listening to her you can feel her love for him you can feel her frustration at hit with him and at the situation because i don't let an island not allowed to vote there i would say there's always a catch well he's unchallenged and the iowa caucus oh i like our chances is just so much going on in what is one actor talking to herself wreck is a pretty astonishing performance the out there is just one little bit where i felt like she just reached out and like grabbed my heart where i felt like i related to the emotion behind it so much where she just says oh my god dad because this is how it is that little oh my god dad love my dad as all of you have now heard he's very loveable guy as we all do never she e exactly and it's still feels a little bit new the idea of being an adult and be frustrated with your parent in that way of like having to be like no i have to get you to understand it still feels like an unfamiliar dynamics by how many years i've been and adult i'm fifty one have inhabit yet assume it's more of a reflection on me than on my dad he can't actually be superhuman so i think it's.

"Oh oh stacking the decks west rings really running the tables young she was terrific in this episode but doesn't strike me as her meatiest episode donnas i think that she i think what we can get into it later but i think that she had some great some great teams here i love the moment between her and josh lyman he's a republican lawyer working for ways and means fighting transfer and it turns out now he's on government oversight can't him i know that you can't see them anymore i know that there's a lot of subtext in that scene and i thought it was all delivered really beautifully with all the nuance that it deserved here's a little synopsis the bartlett administration is beset from all sides in this episode the republicancontrolled congress might override president bartlett's veto of the estate tax bill but not all democrats can be counted on for support hashtag not all democrats i like it i wrote puzzle after a siege seeded goes up against and entertainment reporter charlie is faced with the choice of immunity were sticking with his team um very good speaking of my laugh i get i get a lot of flak from i laugh who gives you fly feel a lot of listeners seem to think that i laugh like the count on sesame street what is the number of the day i think that's a compliment i guess that's your i'm not i'm not personally offended by but i think they mean and as a non no i laugh as if i'm literally saying h a space age a space.
