Allison Janney Did ‘The Jackal’ on Arsenio Last Night

West Wing Deep Cut Alert: Allison Janney, better known to Sorkinites as Press Secretary C.J. Cregg, performed "the Jackal" on Arsenio Hall last night. Some of you will just click play now, and others of you might want to know that "The Jackal" is a song by Ronny Jordan that Janney very famously (to nerds) performed on season one of The West Wing. This particular performance was requested by current White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who is apparently a fan. Okay, get at it.
