24 - Jack misses President Palmer. So do I


I'd be lying if I said I had my full attention on 24 tonight. I had the Red Sox game on simultaneously. The reason I'm not afraid to say that is because President Taylor runs such a wishy-washy Presidency that no one could ever be scared of anything under her administration. Her lack of leadership has led to a domestic terrorist group run amok.

Jack lets Bad News Tim and President Incompetent know that Tony has the canister of nastiness. She can't believe it. How can she be surprised about anything anymore? If I were her, Jack could tell me Bigfoot just attacked the White House working under the direction of the Loch Ness monster and I wouldn't be shocked. President Taylor has been legitimately surprised with every single development throughout the day. This lack of forward thinking makes her a terrible President. That and she has cried multiple times in the last 24 hours. Would President David Palmer, God rest his soul, ever have cried in the face of distress? Never. And that is why State Farm uses him as a figurehead. He is still so presidential.

We also learn a little more about the group running this whole terror fiasco. The group is a bunch of people sitting around mohageny desks talking through an encrypted chat room. The group is lead by the coach from Remember the Titans. They are planning on using the canister to create civil unrest in order to seize control on the government. Sidenote here: If you were planning on taking over the government, how would you start? I don't know either. I wouldn't know the first thing to do. Who would I call? Would I start like an internet group or something? Maybe find a message board? These guys and gals all got together anonymously and hatched a multi-dimensional plot with hundreds of players. Kudos.

The Geek Squad is hard at work in FBI headquarters with Janeane Garofalo bitching and moaning about government protocols when Jack, hearing my own inner monologue I guess, references President Palmer twice. He is either really losing it or just pining for the good old days. We all are Jack. We all are.
