Just then, "Disco" Sam Seaborn (whoa! I may have cheated on this show for a couple episodes, but Sam's hairstyle looks like it went to a Kajagoogoo concert in 1982 and hasn't checked back in since then) comes ranting in, busting in with no introduction, "Toby!" Toby apologizes for missing the rally, calmly adding, "That was a hell of a thing you did with the tax plan." Sam thanks him, and Toby volleys the predictable "I meant it was really stupid." Says the man whose necktie, government-issued ID, and other unmentionables are in a manila envelope while unauthorized photocopies of all of them are on their way to the AP newswire. Sam wants to know what happened, and Toby recaps his gallant defense of defenseless Andi as Charlie banters his way over to a free seat next to the TV Hookers. Toby tells Sam that he's taking over the Seaborn campaign for its last week, and Sam reminds Toby that POTUS doesn't have the authority to fire Scott Holcumb. Toby responds that Holcumb was "taking it in the wrong direction," and Sam worries after Toby's ability to do any better at this point. "We made a rough entrance here, but things are looking up now." Sam reminds Toby of last week's many campaign missteps including the Disneyland débacle, the sound bite regarding the French loaf, and Donna's meeting with a Communist. And while I appreciate Sam's willingness to catch this still somewhat-mystified recapper (Sam get engaged to Trista after he loses the election, right? RIGHT?), up on some of what he's missed, I actually do read Deborah's recaps. So really, I'm fine. Leave the recapping to the recapping professionals. Trim the recapping. Trim the hair. Just trim.
