If you enjoyed Aaron Sorkin’s rhetorically brilliant political television drama “The West Wing,” there is a treat on the Internet courtesy of Michigan Supreme Court candidate Bridget Mary McCormack and her sister, actress Mary McCormack who starred on the show for three seasons.
The show skewed liberal on policy; the hero is a liberal Democrat president played by Martin Sheen. The dialogue boiled down policy issues into a simple proposition, destroying straw-man arguments and ignoring complexities. It did it so well that even if I disagreed I enjoyed its art of rhetoric.
