In hono(u)r of American Thanksgiving, coming up next week, let’s all enjoy a classic episode from West Wing, in which President Bartlet gets on the phone to the Butterball Hotline:

If they ever bring West Wing back on the air, which you know isn’t going to happen — but I’m just saying, IF… it’ll need a bit of an update.

    Thank you so much for posting that clip. I was looking at a local (CT) grocery ad and saw the Butterball hotline mentioned and immediately thought of The West Wing. One of my all time favorite shows. I’m going to have to go home and find this episode on DVD and watch it (but not until after Survivor and Grey’s Anatomy.) Two of my other all time favorite shows! Thanks for the shout out to a terrific show. I look forward to checking out your sight in the future.
