I find no profound revelations in watching it,
it's still just a soap opera played out against
a background of yesterday's news...

If it was made-up "current" news people would bitch that it was nothing like what was going on in reality.

"If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world but not with Republicans? Maybe he’s not the problem."
