Gin Rummy

Gin Rummy (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson): a former soldier and Ed Wuncler III’s best friend. The character is apparently intended as a parody of Donald Rumsfeld by similarities in name, appearance, and use of actual quotes. His last name, “Rummy,” matches the nickname given to Rumsfeld that was often spoken by President George W. Bush. Even though he is shown to be more intelligent than his best friend, he shares the same homicidal tendencies. His name is also a reference to the card game, Gin rummy.

He repeatedly tries to justify his poor criminal planning by asserting that “the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence”(parodying the claims of Bush and Rumsfeld regarding Saddam Hussein’s supposed weapons of mass destruction in Iraq,) or by insisting that he could not plan for “unknown unknowns”. Gin Rummy considers himself a patriot and will do whatever it takes to bring the “Fugitives of Justice” their due. He first appears in the episode “A Date With The Health Inspector”. His style of speaking often parodies Samuel L. Jackson’s character Jules from Pulp Fiction. In many episodes Rummy drives a black Cadillac Escalade.
