** It was all-but-established early on that Jenna lies about her age; Tracy could too. So could [[Main/UnreliableNarrator Liz]]; assuming she was born in 1970 like TinaFey, not much. But still...

** Might've been some corporate shenanigans. AT&T created AT&T Wireless, spun it off into its own company, which merged with Cingular and then eventually bought the original AT&T.

* Even if Kaylee wasn't Hank Hooper's ''genetic'' granddaughter, why would Jack think that that would make any difference? Hooper clearly loves her and she's been his granddaughter for 15 years, so she's still "family" no matter what the [=DNA=] test said.

* Even if Kaylee wasn't Hank Hooper's ''genetic'' granddaughter, and therefore not "family" in the strictest biological sense of the word as it would be defined by animals, why would Jack think that that would make any difference?

** Plus in the one episode with Frank's sex offender ex-teacher, Pete says something about how child sexual abuse is awesome if the child is male and the adult is female. The joke is that society is totally fine with [=MILF=] Island, but if it was a bunch of prepubescent girls and attractive fathers, even though it's theoretically the same thing, they would be horrified.

* Jack is said to have come from a hardscrabble background. Why then, does Colleen have such exceedingly expensive tastes? Even if Jack has started spoiling her since becoming rich, she carries herself and particularly dresses with the aristocratic manner of someone who has felt comfortable around luxury her entire life.

** Breaking into movies offers actors more freedom in their projects and schedule. On a sketch comedy show, you're at the whims of the writers and you're pretty much working seven days a week for much of the year. And what actor wouldn't want to win an oscar?

** ...Will Ferrell, Bill Murray, and Adam Sandler are all SNL alumni. Sandler was nominated for a Golden Globe for PunchDrunkLove, and Murray has an Oscar nomination for LostInTranslation. So clearly, it ''is'' possibly for actors on sketch comedy shows to do serious work.

** MSNBC does, in fact, have conservative pundits.

** MSNBC does, in fact, have conservative pundits. More to the point, though, she's on CNBC, which is completely in thrall to the business and financial interests who provide all their source material, so its talking heads, when they are allowed to express opinions, are typically quite pro-business and conservative. The Tea Party movement was named, if it did not begin, when CNBC commentator Rick Santelli went on a rant from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange about how people whose mortgages were underwater were "losers" not deserving of the mortgage-modification help that the government was going to provide, and said that there should be a "Chicago Tea Party" against it.
