What Is Wrong With Alec Baldwin?

October 21, 2008

Baldwin tries to explain why he played nice with Sarah Palin on SNL:

“Saturday Night Live is a comedy show. It’s not Meet the Press. It doesn’t ‘ask the tough questions’ or ‘set the agenda.’ It attempts, with varying degrees of success, to make people laugh. That’s it. Whether they skewer and savage people in order to do so, they don’t care. When you come on a show like that, you are prepared in advance to get worked over. Palin knew that. Palin came on to be a good sport. And she was. She was polite, gracious. (More so than some of the famous actors who come through there, believe me.)”

Unbelievable. I suppose it would be big news to people like Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert that comedy shows in their very nature are non-political, and don’t “ask the tough questions.”

Seriously, have these people not seen the movie Bob Roberts??

Read Baldwin’s whole insane article here.

And by the way, Alec, even by the minimal standards you set, you failed. I wasn’t laughing.
