Serious Jest: (Queue It) A friend of mine likes to joke that a woman’s desirability has the lifespan of an NFL running back’s career…on a downslide after 30 years old. Louis-Dreyfus, however, seems to share the desirability of a fine wine…at 51, she’s hotter, funnier, and more captivating than she was 20 years earlier on Seinfeld. Make all the GILF jokes you want, but I would totally visit her Oval Office…maybe even throw Tina Fey in the mix, dressed as Sarah Palin…you know, just to really go all in with the DC theme…
Aaaaaaanyway…this show is witty, and the cast is spectacular. Timothy Simons is an amazing douche bag, and I find myself simultaneously wanting to backhand him, but respecting him as an actor. When you get the chance, it’s worth watching every episode. They’re all funny, especially if you live in the DMV or like political humor.
