  • "oh holy night" gets me every time

    aaron sorkin sure can write em. i love how he compares and contrasts things. the west wing was known for being a predominantly liberal show. however, he likes to show both sides of things, and just when you think he couldnt go any farther left he will show a shining conservative moment. i think he does the same thing in this episode with christmas. he has the writing staff going over all these 'debunkings of christmas' and it plays out like a davinci code attack on christianity. but at the last moment he brings in the brass band and they play oh holy night and all the magic of this episode comes together and through the music he is saying "maybe there are all these flaws with the origins of christmas, but does that even matter? the magic is still all around us" merry christmas
