    The sentence says that "Falwell was ... the man who launched a thousand Aaron Sorkin plotlines."

    Nothing whatsoever is said about the writing style of Sorkin, or of anyone else.

    The "nightmare" is Jerry Falwell -- as an influential conservative, he is a "nightmare" for liberals.

    Since Aaron Sorkin's plotlines were very often about politics (he was a writer for the television show The West Wing, which was about politicians), a famous conservative who was politically influential would have been the source of many stories Sorkin wrote -- that is to say, Falwell launched many of Sorkin's plotlines.
