West Wing loves Democrats…

Chris Matthews points out the cozy relationship ($$$) between some cast members of West Wing and the Democrats. Does this matter? I suppose it matters to the extent that a West Wing portraying a Republican administration in a positive light, with cast members donating to Republicans, would more than likely be welcomed by the GOP. It seems we accept it as normal behavior that citizens react politically in some way to the fiction of television–even if that reaction is only “good liberal sentiment.” If such is the case, then Republicans are right to be concerned.
