Apparently It Wasn't A Coincidence

... that The West Wing predicted the future. They may not have known how close the democratic primaries would be or the approximate age of the 2008 Republican nominee when they wrote the prophetic final 2 seasons, but apparently the parallels between Matt Santos and Barack Obama aren't an accident at all. 

Check out this article that I just stumbled upon wherein writer Eli Attie claims that Obama was in their heads all along.

Very interesting. It used to be that reality dictated TV and now it is TV dictating reality. It just shows the power of the Medium moving the message rather than the message moving the medium.

someone's been taking their insight pills. very astute observation. Though is it not a chicken and the egg situation? TV reflects the world that reflects TV.
