If you watch "The West Wing", have not seen the final episode of series four yet and do not want to know what happens, then do not read on. I was fascinated last night at the casting. The Republican Speaker of the House, who became the stand-in President, was played by John Goodman. John Goodman is a very fine actor best remembered as Dan Conner in Roseanne and as Fred Flintstone in the 1994 movie, "The Flintstones". Was this an attempt at political irony? Yes, OK, I know, it is Christmas and I am running short of material.
