When I finally got around to checking out "Scandal" on my Tivo I watched it with the viewpoint that Mo Ivory had applied.
This is the first episode of the season that I have watched. I deleted the "Season Pass" on my Tivo and it did not record any of the episodes. (I watched them all during the premier season).
To be fair - the President is in a coma so Olivia Pope can't "get down" with him in the Oval Office.
The key points that screamed at me in this episode - beyond my initial criticism that no non-government official would have access to the Oval Office as does Olivia Pope, are listed below.
I have to accept that when I view the world I am not looking to BE OFFENDED AS A BLACK PERSON.(Racism Chasing) This might explain that I got an entirely different set of criticism than did Mo Ivory. Olivia Pope's sex life was the least of my concerns.
(You all will never know how much of a burden all of this is to me)

(Editorial Note: This Is A LOL Moment.
I Went To YouTube, Intending To Do A Simple Screen Shot Of The Video Of "Kunta Kinte" Being Captured. The Person Who Posted The Video Labeled The Two "Black American Slaves" Who Captured Him As "Clarence Thomas" And "Herman Cain" - So The Full Video Is Worth Seeing.
THIS PERSON Can't Bring Himself To See That - Just As HE Has Called Out His ENEMY In The "American POLITICAL CONTEXT" - He Is Equally Too Bigoted To Look At WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE REAL WORLD - And Admitting That:
MY PERSONAL OPINION - (With All Due Respect) - "The Bones Of Our Ancestors" DESERVE To Be Disturbed By "NATO Bombs" As Long As The Consciousness Of Their Descendants In America Is So Polluted With Bigotry And Shortsighted Opportunism, As They Focus On What They HOPE TO RECEIVE In The Name Of "Social Justice" In America - That Is PURCHASING THEIR SILENCE.

Is It Possible That An Issue That Was So "Offensive" During The Time When A "Political Indictment" Was To Be Exacted - But Which Today Is Used So Frivolously - Was A Concern That Was FRAUDULENT IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Just As They Recommend Going Through "4 Seasons" With "The Love Of Your Life" That You Just Met - So That You Can Understand How She Changes With The Season - It Seems That We Should Also Make Note Of How A Change From "Offense To Defense" (yes I have this correct from the perspective of the operatives) - Brings Forth A Change In What OFFENDS Them.
