I am as shocked as anyone that the plot line where the Teapot Rats “break into the white house” would become so…close to reality. In fact, the layers of scandal alluded to (Warren Harding, Teapot Dome, Tea-Party Crackpots, The Boston Tea Party and the Radical Right) seem rather quaint, in retrospect. Even the fact that I was able to work in two puns seems like it is not enough somehow. I have been working on the second half of season 1 lately and I can assure you that I am learning from the events of last year. I suppose the fortunate thing, now that we are returning to less scandal filled times, is that I won’t have nearly as many “accidentally relevant” moments…we can all hope.
