Review of The Sopranos in the West Wing

Though humorous, this piece isn't very compelling. Mr. Mitchell may allude to the "with us or against us" stance of the current U.S. administration in regards to the war on terrorism/in Iraq, and I chuckled at the earnestness with which President Tony Soprano waged war, but other than that, it's pure lighthearted fun.

Review of The Sopranos in the West Wing

The beauty of this is that it works so seemlessly. It would be great if it had some deeper meaning - if putting Tony Soprano in the White House told us something about ourselves. If it did, I missed it.
