Watch: '30 Rock's' Jenna Maroney Holds the Fate of the Presidential Election in her Hands

Never one to shy away from politics Tina Fey is injecting the final season of her show 30 Rock with plenty of political fodder. For those keeping up with the final season of the Emmy-winning sitcom last week’s episode placed Jane Krakowski’s wildly self-absorbed actress/singer type Jenna Maroney smack in the middle of deciding who will win the Presidential election on November 7.

Never one to shy away from politics Tina Fey is injecting the final season of her show 30 Rock with plenty of political fodder.

For those keeping up with the final season of the Emmy-winning sitcom last week’s episode placed Jane Krakowski’s wildly self-absorbed actress/singer type Jenna Maroney smack in the middle of deciding who will win the Presidential election on November 7. After some 30 Rock-esque calculations Fey’s liberal Liz Lemon and Alec Baldwin’s conservative Jack Donaghy determined that the deciding vote would come down to Jenna’s Jimmy Buffet-like fans who subscribe to the “Unwindulax" lifestyle and who also happen to reside mainly in the great state of Florida (clearly a nod to the 2000 election recount debacle).

Here’s a clip of the Nov. 1, 30 Rock episode featuring Liz and Jack each vying to get Jenna on their side.
