Trivia

The agricultural poll pretense for bringing in Joey Lucas (we're eating more beets) is another tribute to Doonesbury. When USA Today was in its infancy, Doonesbury poked fun at it and its use of graphs and "We're eating more beets!" was a line in one of the strips. It's also the title of the collection in which the series is found. See more »

Quotes

Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: You guys are like Butch and Sundance peering over the edge of a cliff to the boulder-filled rapids 300 feet below, thinking you better not jump 'cause there's a chance you might drown. The President has this disease and has been lying about it, and you guys are worried that the polling might make us look bad? It's the fall that's gonna kill ya.
