'Tell me where the campaign finance reform is!'

Aaron sent me this "24" tidbit from USA Today:

McCain has a role in '24' — but just for a 'blink'

Viewers will be able to spot a real government figure on the Feb. 6 episode of 24 (Fox, 9 p.m. ET/PT). Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a fan, was visiting the set in the fall when producers asked if he was interested in doing "a little Alfred Hitchcock star turn," executive producer Howard Gordon says. "We had a scene in which Audrey Raines (Kim Raver) needs to get a file folder from someone, and Sen. McCain delivered it."

McCain's non-speaking cameo as an unidentified bureaucrat is so brief it seems like a "Where's Waldo?" moment, Gordon says. "If you blink, you'll miss it."

Before the scene, producers talked politics with McCain. "He was more interested in talking about scenes from 24," Gordon says. "He was able to cite chapter and verse from the seasons."

Wait... that makes it seem that Politicians are some what... human.
