MSNBC Wants Alec Baldwin to Replace Keith Olbermann

Alec Baldwin vs. Jack Donaghy — Who Said It?

Rumors circulated today that Alec Baldwin is MSNBC's favored candidate to replace Keith Olbermann on Countdown after his abrupt departure Friday. I immediately checked my excitement at the rumor mill, predicting by tomorrow Alec will dismiss it as gossip.

But until then there is another question: Who do we really want to host a cable news show? Alec Baldwin or 30 Rock's Jack Donaghy? Politically, they're polar opposites: Jack's red, white, and money-green while Alec bleeds liberal-blue. They are, however, both charismatic and charming yet arrogant, so I rounded up quotes from Alec Baldwin and Jack Donaghy. Can you tell who said it?

It was easy to tell - Tina Fey's writing is much sharper than Alec Baldwin's wit.
