An interesting look at the rise of social conservatism

I don't think that Elizabeth Banks as Jill Ruckelshaus is given as much good material as some of the other actresses in this show. However, she does do a good job and gets a couple pretty strong conversation moments. CIndy Drummond does an excellent job as Texan ultraconservative Lottie Beth Hobbs.

The best part of this episode is that it looks at the period of time where the Republican party started to become the party of social conservativism. It is interesting to see a time when several Republicans could hold positions that would be considered too liberal for the party today.
