Riot Grrrl Problems

This episode of The West Wing first aired November 24th, 1999. Rob Lowe’s character Sam Seaborn is arguing against the confirmation of a Supreme Court nominee who has a shaky position on the right to privacy— specifically, the guy doesn’t think it’s constitutionally guaranteed. 

Yes, everyone loves talking about how this show has anticipated many of the political moments of the early aughts. That said—even if this quote only serves as a reminder that the debates du jour are not something we’re just alighting upon now, that seems like reason enough to revisit it.
