Goofs

Senator Avery talks about going for his 8th term but this is impossible. Even assuming the shortest possible time in office (serving only one day of a vacated Senator's position as his first term plus 5 full terms of 6 years each and he is speaking on the first day of his 7th term) this equals 30 years and two days. He directly states he is 52 and you cannot become a Senator unless you are at least 30 meaning he must be an absolute minimum of 60 yeas and two days old. See more »

Wonderful mixed metaphors
19 August 2000 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Brilliant mixed metaphors, fabulous dialogue. I can see how someone may not like it if they don't get or don't like word play, but if you like a good turn of phrase I highly recommend it! Huzzah for John Binder, whoever he is, not much on his resume, I can't wait for the next script!
