The bad news? This might be a veiled commentary on John McCain. The good news? My screenplay about a power-mad woman senator from New York who eats the placentas of aborted fetuses is suddenly looking golden. (Don’t worry, I’ve made her a Republican.) Click the image to watch.

Update: Johnny Dollar e-mails:

I watched this on air and totally did not get the McCain connection. As a regular viewer the AZ thing didn’t stick out, becuase the show is SET in AZ, so the Senator would have to be from there. It was interesting that they get Itzen, so weasly on ’24’, to play the Senator.

One thing to keep in mind: MEDIUM is produced by Kelsey Grammar–one of the few H’wood Repubs. I would be very surprised if he intended any sort of McCain hit piece.
