Alec Baldwin: Idiot

Alec Baldwin has graced the Huffington Post with his vast and impressive understanding of all things stupid. Not that this is news, because we all know Monsieur Baldwin is a total waste of skin. But this latest...what. Screed? Brain fart? is staggering in its total lack of thought and reason.

So, I suppose the question is...what kind of civil trial will we see, or not see, between Cheney and Whittington? Whittington is certainly no stranger to a court room and to civil litigation. Will Cheney pay him off, preemptively? Will they go to court? I would imagine if a guy with a few beers in him shoots you in the face on a hunting trip, how could you turn down that opportunity?

Well, YOU may sue someone for an honest mistake, but Cheney and Whittington are friends. Whittington has said that what happened was a mistake. If a friend of mine accidentally shot me even after 13 martinis and a few tequila shots my first thought wouldn't be "sue". But maybe I'm just unenlightened and simple-minded.

What would Cheney do about the whole secrecy thing then?

What secrecy thing? They waited 16 hours. Relax, dude.

I mean, this is the guy that sicced Enron on Gray Davis and the state of California to embarrass Davis, trigger the recall and then watched Arnold Schwarzenegger become governor of California. (To this day, perhaps, still the low point in American political life.) Then Cheney covered it up. Cheney's the guy who told Libby to out Valerie Plame. The rumor I heard is that someone yelled, "Look out! Shooter!" and Cheney thought he said Scooter and fired in that general direction.

(oh, funny Alec. Alec made a funny. That...wasn't really funny. But he's writing his OWN material this time)

I thought that was Karl Rove that manipulated the Enron scandal to pave the way for the indictment of Martha Stewart so she could make a comeback and help Mrs. Rove with her creme brulees.

Cheney is a terrorist. He terrorizes our enemies abroad and innocent citizens here at home indiscriminately.

Name one "innocent citizen" who's been terrorized personally by Dick Cheney. One. I'll wait here.
And would you rather our government in general or our VP make nice and have creme brulees and port with our enemies abroad? Are you on drugs or have you been lobotomized lately, Mr. Baldwin?

Who ever thought Harry Whittington would be the answer to America's prayers. Finally, someone who might get that lying, thieving Cheney into a courtroom to answer some direct questions.

Or maybe Mr. Whittington will show the world what friendship, forgiveness and adult behavior looks like. Heaven knows we don't get that watching you Hollywood clowns...

Patrick at Clarity & Resolve puts it best:

I know that Baldwin's America is one he's convinced is filled with lots of people like himself with nothing better to do than shake their fists at anything Republican from a faux ivory tower, while shouting out dopey bumpersticker platitudes and sophmoric ad hominem smears.

In my America, however, we're not praying that we'll see Dick Cheney in a civil court to face his buddy over a regrettable hunting accident. We're looking for the more meaningful fulfillment of physical and financial security, protecting our freedom, and keeping our loved ones safe from the jihadi monsters that men like Cheney are so cruelly terrorizing abroad.
