Julie Parker is a (frizzy-haired and sometimes frazzled) satire and essay writer in Boston. Her work has appeared in McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The Belladonna, and on her parents’ refrigerator. She writes a regular column for McSweeney’s reviewing the latest episodes of The West Wing, a TV show that’s really gone downhill since Trump was elected.
