‘Kenneth the Page’ on Bobby Jindal

The GOP can’t seem to help itself when it comes to picking national spokespeople that remind the public of comedians.


Soon after Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s response to President
Obama’s address to Congress, the internet was abuzz with comparisons
between the earnest Jindal and “Kenneth the Page”, the sweet, southern
page on 30 Rock. Actor Jack McBrayer dismisses the comparisons to the
“Goober-nutorial” Jindal. What NBC comedic character will be the next
Republican spokesperson?
