From The CC Insider…
First there were the ubiquitous comparisons of Sarah Palin to Tina Fey, and now, the day after Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's response to President Obama's address, all anyone can talk about is how much he sounded and acted like Kenneth from 30 Rock.
So, I got to wondering which other Republicans have 30 Rock counterparts. Here are the results of my scientific study.
Tracy Jordan and Rush Limbaugh
Similarities: Always on drugs, bad for the black community

* Barack Obama never did make it to this inaugural ball. Despite the higher level of intelligence than you'd find at most political functions.
* Somehow, I don't think he'll be making an appearance at this one either. Despite the higher class of people than you'd find at most political functions.
* Barack Obama to be sworn in alongside 500 body doubles… Just in case.
* The Palin family don't take kindly to white trash, ya know?
* Cindy McCain fields tough questions in her hardest interview to date.
* It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday. Again.

As though life wasn't hard enough for John McCain these days — what with having to read about his former political rival sitting down with the world's foremost economic experts, while he eats cupcakes with talking heads from I Love the 80s — now he has to deal with this piece of trash recently purported by the trashy, but uncomfortably reliable (as of late), National Enquirer…
The ENQUIRER's exclusive bombshell expose as Sen. John McCain's wife, Cindy, is caught with another man! Not only that but multiple witnesses have caught the pair lip locking on several other occasions.
"I couldn't believe I was watching Cindy McCain passionately kissing and hugging another man!" That's the stunned reaction of an eyewitness who says he watched in shock — and snapped photos — as the former presidential candidate's wife romantically kissed a long-haired man who resembles "a washed-up '80s rock musician."
I took a long look at the photo provided, and I have to say that it definitely resembles a woman of some sort who has hair on top of her head kissing something that looks like a man. (It's either that or some sort of sea creature briefly rising above the surface of a dark lake.)
I double-checked the facts: Cindy McCain is a woman, and she does have hair. Whether or not she knows how to kiss is still open to debate.
Ladies and gentlemen, I think that the National Enquirer has rested its case.

As John McCain points out, he can't afford a half hour special, but luckily the liberal media let him book two segments on Saturday Night Live.
It was nice that Tina Fey was willing to be on stage for a solid five minutes with McCain after not even looking Sarah Palin in the eye two weeks ago.
I think I'm going to invest in McCain Fine Gold until the economy gets back on track, myself.
After the fold, John McCain explains that his new campaign strategy for the last three days will be the "Double Maverick," which sounds like something this guy made up.

Ever get an e-mail from a Nigerian prince who is so desperate to get rid of his vast fortune that he's willing to literally give it away?
It turns out that prince was named David Plouffe, Obama campaign manager.
Plouffe, still sitting on an enormous pile of cash, has decided that rather than dispose of it the traditional way (swing state ads, charitable donations, incineration) is going to use it to buy airtime in Arizona…
Barack Obama's presidential campaign is taking the unprecedented step of launching its first advertising in rival John McCain’s home state of Arizona.
Obama campaign manager David Plouffe announced the advertising buy this morning, saying the campaign also would re-launch advertising in Georgia, where it hasn’t advertised in several months, and start advertising in North Dakota…
"It's enough in the realm of the possible that we want to put a little extra effort at the end,” he said. “We want to give it a go in the last few days. We wanted to see how far we can go."
The polls have already shown that McCain is no homecoming king within the state. The reasons are complex but include…
* He carpetbagged from Virginia on speculation that a House seat was opening up.
* His entire political career was made possible by his wife's beer money.
* He's been irritating his neighbors with robocalls.
* Barry Goldwater couldn't stand him.
Still, spending ad dollars in the man's home state is quite a gamble by Plouffe. Not as risky as giving a Nigerian internet prince your bank account information, but probably more hubristic.
Just ask the old David Plouffe — the one who sent all those e-mails asking us for money.
