Calista Flockhart is going to play a conservative pundit in an ABC series this fall with an otherwise great cast (Ron Rifkin, Patricia Wettig, Sally Field).
She won't be like Anne Coulter, though. According to writer Jon Robin Baitz: "I think she's a thoughtful conservative. She's ideologically, in some respects, very much in mind with the older parts of the party, the sort of Eisenhower Republican, the William Buckley conservative. She's also a humanist."
Eisenhower Republican. William Buckley conservative. That's the same thing, right? And Buckley's pretty much a humanist, right?
It is possible for a conservative woman pundit to be wonderful written. But not by Jon Robin Baitz, apparently.
I'll still tune in for Ron Rifkin.
