The Real Big Block of Cheese Day is Jan. 29

The West Wing fans rejoice (and Obama haters, go ahead, crack a smile this is fun): With a hat tip to both President Andrew Jackson's 1837 1,400 pound block of cheese and to The West Wing episode in which interest groups who didn't normally get White House access got heard, on Jan. 29, "White House officials will take to social media for a day long 'open house' to answer questions from everyday Americans."

According to the White House Blog, "dozens of White House officials will take to social media for a day long 'open house' to answers questions from everyday Americans in real-time on Twitter,FacebookTumblrInstagram and via Google+ Hangout."

The White House announced this plan with a video starring Bradley Whiford  (Josh Lyman) and Joshua Malina (Will Bailey). I was always a Sam Seaborn fan, but Josh had his boyish charm, back then.
