Watching some of the usual TV fare today, I tuned into CBS Sunday Morning. One of the guests was Alan Alda. He was asked about his current story arc on The West Wing where he plays a Republican running for President. The question was, given his liberal, progressive Democratic background, could he really play that role if he won the race, since he would have to recite a bunch of lines espousing the GOP agenda. His answer?
"Come on. I'm an actor. I've played a murderer! I can certainly play a Republican."
