Who are these folks in the West Wing ?

The West Wing is filled with plenty of Chicagoan insiders, political hacks and lawyers.

"Reggie Love .... known as Obama's body man"?

Hey! Is that something like in the movie Spatacus where Tony Curtis was Lawrence Olivia's "body servant"?

Maybe Barak and Reggie have talks about oysters and other things as well?

Why I am just shocked, SHOCKED I tell you that Obama would go with people that he trusts in his inner circle. One would have thought he would go with total strangers. One might even have thought he would get a posse from Texas. That last bunch did so well.

As for talking about oysters and other things, it could be. At least both men are able to string together articulate sentences and have intelligent thought. So the country is ahead from that aspect from the get go.

I keep meaning to start a thread in some far off dusty corner of BenzWorld with predicted bear responses to various posts. Then I'd link them to a thread like this for accuracy. Then I come back to my senses.

Your post was predictable and tedious as usual. But the link was interesting and informative – thank you.

Is O's teleprompter there during these articulate conversations?
