Briefly: Alicia Florrick Bitch Slapped the Works of Ayn Rand in Last Night's 'The Good Wife'

By Dustin Rowles | TV Reviews | May 12, 2014 | Comments ()


Last night’s The Great Wife was its usual great self, and I don’t want to get too much into the details of the episode here (suffice to say, Eli learned some things about Alicia and her husband he didn’t want to learn, and Diane may soon make a move), but I did absolutely love Alicia’s divine condescension toward the works of Ayn Rand.

In short, Alicia had a wealthy CEO client claiming that — as part of the 1 percent — he’s being attacked and mistreated like the Nazis mistreated Anne Frank. *cough* *cough* Later, he even suggested that voting rights should be tied to one’s wealth because, he believed, those who work to earn their wealth deserve more say in the direction of the country.

Alicia took issue with the CEO’s politics, of course, and when the CEO suggested Florrick check out the works of Ayn Rand, she responded with delightful contempt. I only wish I could include an embed so could hear how much contempt were in her words.
