John Francis ‘Jack’ Donaghy of 30 Rock is the wisest man in TV history and it’s not even close. Sure he had dogshit judgment when it came to women but that’s just because he was a man who lived for the carnal pleasures. Yes, making out with his mother-in-law while his wife was trapped in North Korea was a bad idea but if you think back to that incident on 30 Rock you’ll remember that his mother-in-law was hot AF, so it was perfectly excusable.
As a staunch Republican who tried to oust Queen Latifah’s character Congresswoman Regina Bookman in favor of Rhode Island’s Steven Austin (not to be confused with the wrestler) it was also poor judgment for 30 Rock‘s Jack Donaghy to knock the boots with Democratic Congresswoman Celeste (CC) Cunningham, but again Jack’s into the carnal pleasures of life.
And since we’re on the topic of politics I think it’s important to take a look back at just how hard Jack Donaghy tried to get Mitt Romney elected when the rest of the world wasn’t doing jack shit:
I could honestly sit here all day and go over my favorite Jack Donaghy 30 Rock quotes because believe it or not I’ve actually spent more time watching 30 Rock than most humans have spent sleeping (more than the writers/editors). For years I’ve used 30 Rock as the ‘white noise’ I need to fall asleep at night, queueing up episodes every single night on Netflix.
To make a long story short, if there was a Jeopardy! competition specifically for 30 Rock trivia I’d fucking crush it, but I won’t hit you bros with all of John Francis Donaghy’s best quotes today, we can save that for another day.
Just remember this one: your hair is your ‘head suit’ so you need to make sure your haircut is always on point.
