I don't know how John Wells expects us to swallow this crap. As if anyone could possibly believe that the moron from Texas would really get more votes than the smart war hero from New England. Does Wells really think the American people are that stupid?
Oh, wait. These seem to be my notes from Tuesday night, not Wednesday night. Let me start over. (Although I still have a sneaking suspicion that Wells is behind everything bad in our society, including the election results.)
A black SUV pulls up in front of the White House. Josh, Toby, and Will are in the SUV, wearing the same clothes they had on at the end of the last episode, when we saw them climb into the gas-guzzling earth destroyer. Except that they seem to be sitting in different positions. And Kate is not with them. Did they lose her? Did they get so tired of her always being right that they shoved her out of the car on the highway? Where is she? Oh, I've got it -- they must have dropped her off at the hair salon. My new theory about the bangs is that, as a young woman, Kate took an oath that she would never cut her bangs until there was peace in the Middle East. Now that she has single-handedly brought about that peace, it's finally time for a trim. Just to further mess with the continuity freaks, the pavement in the White House driveway is wet after the rain that we saw at Camp David. So they got the clothes and the weather right, but messed up on the seating arrangement and the identity of the people who were actually in the SUV. I guess two out of four isn't so bad -- for a student film. In the SUV, Josh is wondering whether the President should address a joint session of Congress, while Toby is on his cell phone trying to reach Leo. He keeps asking someone named "Signal" to try Leo's number again. As they get out of the SUV, Will says, "My fellow Americans. Please deposit fifty cents for three more paragraphs." I think I just have to give up trying to understand Will's lines. As Toby argues with the operator, Josh exposits that he has already tried to call Leo five times. As the three of them enter the White House, Will leaves Josh and Toby to go to his own office. Which, as you might recall, is not in the West Wing. Because he doesn't work for the President. Suddenly, Josh and Toby are accosted by Margaret, who tells them that the Republican leadership has been waiting twenty minutes in the Roosevelt room. Apparently, they had a meeting scheduled with Leo, and Margaret cannot find him anywhere.
