The series paints an unflattering picture of the political system as a whole -- and the vice president's role in particular -- poking fun at closed-door deals designed to further careers rather than effect positive change and making light of all-too-familiar issues like sexual relationships between public servants and interns in particular. There's also some politically incorrect name-calling like "retard" and "freak." The casting of a woman in a powerful role is a plus, but since the show takes jabs at her failures in that role as its main source of laughs, it's somewhat counterproductive.
Positive Role Models & Representations
More referential than visual. There's mention of extramarital affairs, implications of using a career position to solicit sex from interns, and references to erections.
Frequent, comedic versions of "f--k" ("f--ktard," "pencil-f--ked," and plenty more), as well as "bitch," "t-t," "s--t," "d--k," "piss," and "God almighty."
Nothing stands out, but brand names like Dell, BlackBerry, and Wikipedia pop up in the context of the dialogue.
