WGA Strike 07: Jenna Bush Crosses Picket Line for Ellen

NBC strike.jpg

Nina B., aka the Slackmistress, kindasorta caught the Presidential daughter crossing the WGA picket line at NBC. She writes:

The writers were kept from crossing in front of her car by Secret Service; apparently the were afraid she would overhear and actually get our jokes.

Tomorrow, Jenna’s pushing her book on Ellen.

Thursday, Ellen hosts Keira Knightley and Toby Keith. Friday, it’s Paula Deen (who’s own show boast no union writers!). Strikers, you’ve been warned.

(And while we’re on the subject–what line is Kristin Gore walking?)
