And there's a good follow-up on Jezebel right here, by Katie J.M. Baker.
Now I adore Sorkin's writing. I think he's the best television writer in America today. I drink his snappy dialogue and his fiery didactic monologues like someone dying of thirst in a desert. This doesn't mean I don't think he's perfect (he's not), or that he doesn't deserve every walloping he gets for being an asinine sexist jerk from time to time (he is).
Finally, if you want to actually read some Aaron Sorkin, here's a link to his Oscar-winning screenplay The Social Network. It's great stuff.
EDIT: There's a good article just up at Dark Matter here, which follows on from this brief post in more length. Check it out.
