It's more beautiful than I ever dared dream.

C.J. Cregg - At Her Best

"Outraged? I'm barely surprised. This is a country where women aren't allowed to drive a car. They're not allowed to be in the company of any man other than a close relative. They're required to adhere to a dress code that would make a Maryknoll nun look like Malibu Barbie. They beheaded 121 people last year for robbery, rape, and drug trafficking. No free press, no elected government, no political parties. And the royal family allows the religious police to travel in groups of six, carrying nightsticks, and they freely and publicly beat women. But 'Brutus is an honorable man.' Seventeen schoolgirls were forced to burn alive because they weren't wearing the proper clothing. Am I outraged? No, Steve. No, Chris. No, Mark. That is Saudi Arabia, our partners in peace."

C.J. Cregg - Telling It Like It Is

Leo, we need to be investigated by someone who wants to kill us just to watch us die. We need someone perceived by the American people to be irresponsible, untrustworthy, partisan, ambitious, and thirsty for the limelight. Am I crazy, or is this not a job for the U. S. House of Representatives?

C.J. Cregg Week Marches On

Entertainment Reporter Sherri Wexler: That was totally uncalled for.
C.J. Cregg: Yeah?
Entertainment Reporter Sherri Wexler: My competitors are going to show that tape. Every local station in town...
C.J. Cregg: What? Are you crazy? That thing's going out to 154 affiliates.
Entertainment Reporter Sherri Wexler: Look, I...
C.J. Cregg: I changed my clothes because I didn't think it was appropriate to talk about the death of two teenagers while wearing a ball gown, and you knew that, because you're stupid, but you're not stupid. You know what I'm saying? Security's gonna take your press credentials. You'll call my office every day, and I'll decide if you get into the room. I'm taking your spot on Pebble Beach; you can do your stand-ups from Lafayette Park.
Entertainment Reporter Sherri Wexler: Who the hell do you...
C.J. Cregg: One more word out of your mouth, and every local station in town but yours gets an exclusive with the President. Hunting season on me is over.
[Sherri turns and walks away]
C.J. Cregg: And the chemical abbreviation for table salt is NaCl.

Happy Election Day!

"Anyway, Helena Hodworth Hooter-Tooter of Braintree wants to organize a boycott of the reception, and... Well, there it is. Yes, Mrs. Bartlet descends from quite the murderous band of ruffians, and her membership in the DAR is suspect on those grounds, or so believes the Boston Globe."

C.J. Cregg week is on

In honor of Election Day on November 3, Flamingo and I have decided to dedicate this week to the woman we wish we could both be, C.J. Cregg.

"We have at our disposal a captive audience of schoolchildren. Some of them don't go to the blackboard or raise their hand 'cause they think they're going to be wrong. I think you should say to these kids, "You think you get it wrong sometimes, you should come down here and see how the big boys do it." I think you should tell them you haven't given up hope and that it may turn up, but, in the meantime, you want NASA to put its best people in a room and you want them to start building Galileo 6. Some of them will laugh and most of them won't care but for some, they might honestly see that it's about going to the blackboard and raising your hand. And that's the broader theme."
