Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Jack (Alec Baldwin) invites Liz (Tina Fey) to a Republican Party fundraiser as his "chum". Unbeknownst to Liz, Jack is actually using her as a bait to get the attendees to contribute more to the Romney campaign. Liz is furious and decides to promote the Democratic Party through TGS. Jack uses his donation money in an attempt to lure minorities into the Romney camp, including paying Don Cheadle $10 million to appear in a Romney campaign commercial. While Liz uses Lutz's great nephew Kellan Lutz, as a guest star on TGS, to promote her liberal political views. However, both of their attempts fail.
Meanwhile, Jenna's (Jane Krakowski) new "chilled" out personal image has been attracting the public's attention. The writers realize that they could use her fame to annoy her, since she can't afford to shatter her image by getting mad at them in public. Their plans backfire when Jenna threatens to use her fame to destroy them. The writers collect all of Jenna's most horrible moments and plan to release them on the internet. However, Pete thwarts their plans by destroying a compilation CD of Jenna's embarrassing moments because Jenna's fans have given him peace and relaxation.
Tracy (Tracy Morgan) teaches Liz about the US election map, while Jack is doing exactly the same thing with representatives of the Romney campaign. They both realize at the same time that Northern Florida could decide the election, and that a substantial chunk of their population is in New York as Jenna's fans. Hence, they both come to the conclusion that Jenna Maroney could decide the presidential election.
