Episode Info

Josh (Bradley Whitford) is embarrassed to no end by a worshipful website dedicated to him. Toby (Richard Schiff) cannot wait to meet new U.S. Poet Laureate Tabatha Fortis (Laura Dern), who unfortunately has several choice non-rhyming words to say about American policy. The national press has a field day with President Barlet's (Martin Sheen) comment about his opponent ("a .22-caliber mind in a .457-magnum world"). And after running interference for the president, Republican staffer Ainsley Hayes (Emily Procter) is rewarded.
