West Wing sings to my Heart...
TABITHA: Nice office.
TOBY: Exactly 63 feet from the Oval Office. If you don't think we measure, you're
out of your mind.
I know people are either gonna love Aaron Sorkin’s “The Newsroom”, but really, in my opinion, you’re gonna love it if you have an intellectual bone in your body, and you’re gonna hate it, well, if you’re stupid.
Newsroom
Jenny: Can you say in one sentence or less what--
Audience: *laughter*
Jenny: Um, you know what I mean. Can you say why America is the greatest country in the world?
Sharon: Diversity and opportunity.
Professor: Luis?
Luis: Uh freedom and freedom. So let's keep it that way.
Audience: *applause*
Professor: Will?
Will: The New York Jets.
Audience: *laughter and applause*
Professor: No. I'm gonna hold you to an answer on that. What makes America the greatest country in the world?
Will: *sigh* Well, Luis and Sharon said it. Diversity and opportunity and freedom and freedom.
Audience: *chuckle*
Woman in crowd: *hold up two sign that reads "It's not" and "But it can be"*
Professor: I'm not letting you go back to the airport without answering the question.
Will: *stares into the audience* Well, our Constitution is a masterpiece, James Madison was a genius, the Declaration of Independence is, for me, the single greatest piece of writing. *looks at professor* You don't look satisfied.
Professor: One's a set of laws and the other's a declaration of war. I want a human moment from you.
Will: *stares into the crowd and sees woman holding up the two signs*
Professor: What about the people? Why is Amer--
Will: It's not the greatest country in the world, professor. That's my answer.
Audience: *gasp*
Professor: You're saying--
Will: Yes.
Professor: Let's talk about--
Will: Fine. Sharon, the NEA is a loser. Yes, it account for every penny out of our paycheck, but he *points to Luis* gets to hitch it with it anytime he wants. It doesn't cost money, it costs votes. It costs airtime and column inches. You know why people don't like Liberals? 'Cause they lose. If Liberals were so smart, how come they fucking lose so goddamn always?
Sharon: Hey--
Will: And with a straight face, you're gonna tell student that America is so star spangled awesome that we're the only ones who have freedom? Canada has freedom! Japan has freedom! The UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, AUSTRALIA, Belgium! has freedom. So, 207 sovereign states in the world, like 180 have freedom.
Professor: Alright--
Will: And yeah you, um, sorority girl, just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there's some things you should know and one of them is: There is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we're the greatest country in the world. We're seventh in literacy, twenty-seventh in math, twenty-second in science, forty-ninth in life expectancy, one hundred seventy-eighth in infant mortality, third in median household income, number four in labor force, and number four in exports. We lead the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending where we spend more than the next twenty-six countries combined; twenty-five of whom are allies. Now none of this is the fault of a twenty year-old college student, but you are, without of a doubt, a member of the worst period generation period ever period. So when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don't know what the FUCK you're talking about. Yosemite?
Audence: *gasp then silence*
Will: It sure used to be. We stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reasons. We passed laws, struck down laws, for moral reason. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed. We cared about our neighbor. We put our money where our mouths were and we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and we cultivated the world's greatest artist and the world's greatest economy. We reached for the stars. Acted like men. We ASPIRED to intelligence, we didn't belittle it. It didn't make us feel inferior. We didn't identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election. And we didn't *sight we didn't scare so easy. *sigh* *clears throat* We were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed...by great men. Men who were revered. First step in solving any problem is recognizing that there is one. America's not the greatest country in the world anymore. *turns to professor* Enough?

So good it gives me chills…
