They really think people are dumb.

@JohnEkdahl @erichbergen And the timing is just a coincidence!

Remember when ABC coincidentally launched a series with Geena Davis as the first female President shortly before the 2008 Democratic primaries? Funny how this stuff happens, isn’t it? Then there was that NBC miniseries about Hillary in which Diane Lane was going to play the carpetbagging former first lady. CNN had a documentary planned about Hillary until nobody wanted to sit for interviews about her. (We’re not sure why. It’s not like she’s vindictive or anything. She had no idea how all those FBI files ended up in her house.)

@NJSpeechGuy @JohnEkdahl Listen – I'm not saying that we aren't using a relevant topic, but we have no ties to Mrs. Clinton.

Of course you don’t—not officially anyway. That would be illegal.

@erichbergen you entertainment types crack me up. Just be honest about *why* this show exists.

@erichbergen @NJSpeechGuy @JohnEkdahl Episode about her courageously handling an overrun embassy.. But other than that..

— S.M (@redsteeze) September 22, 2014

What? How’d that story get in there?

TV Guide gives a rundown on the plots of the first few episodes:

The pilot episode involves young American hostages held in Syria, the second episode deals with a fiery attack on the U.S. Embassy in Yemen, and the third deals with an Edward Snowden-inspired whistle-blower/hacker causing havoc throughout the State Department. (emphasis added)

All those voters who thought Sarah Palin said things that only Tina Fey said while mocking her will end up thinking Hillary did a bang-up job at State.

@redsteeze @erichbergen @JohnEkdahl Of course the show CAN'T have official ties with HRC but don't tell me this is unintended coincidence.

There have been a few female Secretaries of State but it only became a great idea for a series when Hillary’s record badly needs some polishing? Pull the other one.
