Sorkin isn't as even with his female characters as he thinks he is. CJ was great, so was Mrs Bartlett and Mrs Landingham, but McKenzie McHale (really? Someone would name their kid that?) is so neurotic, obsessing stupidly over McAvoy, that it gets in the way. Still, I love the show, and I punched the air on the line "The Tea Party is the American Taliban" Having watched Bachmann's performance in the last few days, damn straight!
