That's the approximate number of times I've watched The American President. I love it for many reasons, but primarily because the villains? Are Republicans. And they are eeeeevil. In one part, the bad, bad Republicans are talking about how they couldn't run the kind of character attacks they wanted to in the last campaign (because Republicans looooove character attacks; they're their preferred campaign strategy. At least according to Aaron Sorkin). Random Republican #1 points out that their opponent is the same guy as before, character attacks still won't stand.

Cue big evil chuckle from other Republicans. Turns out that Random Republican #1 has been on a HUNTING TRIP so he's behind on the news of the President's girlfriend. A HUNTING TRIP, people. Geez. I love stereotypes. Was he hunting gays? I think that was implied.

God, this movie is good. I'm going to go watch it again.



Unrelated: the baby panda at the National Zoo is getting officially named on Monday. My vote is for Butterstick, even though it isn't on the ballot.

All together now: BUT-TERSTICK! BUT-TERSTICK! BUT-TERSTICK!
