The Allison Taylor Treatment

24's new president, Allison Taylor, is already a strong character. Cherry Jones is a very likable Commander-in-Chief (not since David Palmer have we really had a chance to like any of these people in the White House). Now, I love U.S. history-- particularly those quirks involving the Presidency. One that I always found amusing was how Lyndon B. Johnson physically and emotionally manipulated lawmakers through a practice known as The Johnson Treatment (see below):


Undoubtedly, Johnson's huge personality was an over-compensation for something else. Due to genetics, however, President Allison Taylor does not suffer from such insecurity. She doesn't have to fake anything, see below:




This lady is all class.

You like the slideshow gag? I'm thinking of buying a whole pizza and showing what happens over a time lapse when I'm left alone with that poor 8-slices of vulnerable food.

Play some Benny Hill over the time lapse video and you've got yourself a winner.
