Liberals were all atwitter a few months ago over the news that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was going to be doing a cameo role on the series finale of 30 Rock.
I wonder how they felt when she was called a "jackass” right before her appearance (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
To set this up, an executive of the fictitious Kabletown company entered CEO Jack Donaghy’s (Alec Baldwin) office saying, “Jack, you are gonna love this you magnificent bastard. Someone leaked your new salary. Occupy Wall Street is having a conniption.”
“Really?” Baldwin asked.
“They burned you in effigy!” the exec replied. “The hair went up like a roman candle. And the Democrats, they don't even know what to do with themselves. Just look at this jackass.”
The exec then turned on the TV set in the office where Pelosi was on – what a surprise! – MSNBC saying, “Jack Donaghy is an economic war criminal. If the Democratic Party controlled Congress, I would see to it that he was punished in the worst way possible - by having to come down here and listen to us.”
Makes you wonder if Pelosi knew how she was going to be introduced this way.
