Dowd’s Substitute? Delicious.

The best thing about Ms. P being out of town and J hiding under the covers from my sharp sharp talons (so he can sleep) is that I get the computer to myself in the morning.

Today, instead of just marking it, I watched a few episodes of the curiously delightful BBC program Peep Show, then bloggy-paddled over to the New York Times web presence, where I was BLOWN THE EFF AWAY.

Aaron Sorkin wrote Maureen Dowd’s column this weekend! Anyone who has ever kicked it with me on the stone sectional knows I’m a sucker for Sorkin, but man, a conversation between Barack Obama and President Jed Bartlet? That’s some fictionalization even the casual West Wing fan can appreciate. A small sample:

OBAMA: I didn’t expect you to answer the door yourself.

BARTLET: I didn’t expect you to be getting beat by John McCain and a Lancôme rep who thinks “The Flintstones” was based on a true story, so let’s call it even.

So good. And there are many, many more tasty treats in the full piece. Check it!
