I think the episode's title should be "I'm just too close to the president," and I don't know what's better, Howard Dean being someone he's not in his Porsssssh or G Gordon Liddy in his James Bond-cum-Goebbels appearances. Even the nobody kidnapper/bodyguard to Martha Mitchell, who the show is ostensibly is about, perpetuates the lie about the stolen watch. I haven't even had a chance to look up the history of The Watch but if it really was from the King of England, I would not be surprised at this point.

Betty "Mother of Dragons" Gilpin needs to just run but given that John Dean and Mo Green are still married in real life I guess yelling at the string to just go is doing no good.

> Betty "Mother of Dragons" Gilpin

Ha -- I called her "Khaleesi" in a text to a friend about this episode. I do not understand what she sees in him.
