Trivia

At the time Garry Trudeau wrote the pilot, the Senate had experienced only a tiny handful of "talking filibusters" (where senators take to the floor for hours) over the last 40 years. But by the time the pilot first aired, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky had filibustered for 13 hours straight and later in 2013 Senator Ted Cruz of Texas took to the floor for a marathon speech that lasted for 21 hours.

Quotes

Senator Gil John Biggs: Do I look like somebody prepared to fly to fucking Kabul for the goddamn National Committee?
Robert Bettencourt: You do not. You look like somebody prepared to fly to Philly for the World Series.

PC Republican Hating at it's best!
22 November 2013 | by avbsoftworksSee all my reviews

While I have no illusions that there are despicable, self righteous, criminal politicians on both sides of the isle. When does middle American get to see the underside of the democrat side of the isle. Do all holly- wood actors refuse to play (D) pols as buffoons and corrupt cretins. Take a page from netflix if you want to do good streaming TV. House of Cards, while a ripoff of bbctv it is a great piece of drama, about corrupt politicians. I have never found most politicians funny in any way, they are either corrupt or dangerous and many time both. John Goodman is a great actor, how did he get roped into this piece of trash. Is he so desperate for a paycheck? that he would embarrass himself this way. Maybe he needs the money for his new Obamacare policy!!!
