By about 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, it was inevitable -- given how many people were comparing Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and his response to the president's address to Congress to "30 Rock" character Kenneth the Page, there'd have to be a response from Kenneth himself.

It was quick in coming. Unfortunately, "Kenneth" didn't respond on "Saturday Night Live" or "30 Rock" itself, but on Jimmy Fallon's new show, which means that this isn't nearly as funny as it should be. Given Fallon's presence in the skit, it's a miracle any laugh lines survived.
