Sure, 30 Rock is pretty much one of the funniest shows on television and everything. So, we know it's funny-funny. But is it Republican-funny? Like, is it actually a conservative-leaning show in disguise?
According to this not-completely-unconvincing argument from Slate, it just might be…
The show's central tension remains the tug of war between Fey's Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy. Their head butting doubles as an argument about the viability of liberal ideals and the allure of a pragmatic, colder-eyed conservatism — and it's remarkable how often the show sides with the latter…

Michael Kraskin — blogging from his new home at Political Machine — thinks he might have discovered Alaska governor Sarah Palin in last night's episode of 30 Rock, . What do you think?
I can't really tell. That could be her, standing next to Alec Baldwin, in that background portrait. We know that they met on SNL that one time.
On the the other hand, it could just be Tina Fey. Or possibly Bill Kristol. Hard to tell.
Let's zoom in a little and take a closer look…

* What if George Bush and Ron Paul were the stars of a comic book adaptation of the movie Roadhouse from 1989? Yeah, but what if?
* Playing poker with Harry Reid has got to be the best money-making enterprise ever invented.
* Turns out that it was Tina Fey and Katie Couric who were the ones exploiting Sarah Palin's manufactured image as a down-home hockey mom maverick. You owe me a Coke.
* The Washington Post is calling Barack Obama "Nixonian" — conservatives, liberals alike despair for appropriate reaction.

* Politico: "Daschle floats through Senate hearing" — Sounds to me like somebody needs to call a paranormalist.

Indecision producer Darcy Savit was trolling through Getty Images (looking for pictures of John McCain naked or something), when she came across this Life Magazine cover from October 15, 2004, accurately predicting a McCain/Fey presidential ticket…
I think Eric March expressed our collective shock best when he said, "Wow! Life Magazine still exists?"

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.
