    It's ok. Alec Baldwin is the President of the Film Actors Guild. He can say that.
    "Political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. . . . Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness."

    It was not 27 years ago. It was 6 years ago as she was planning her brother's wedding. It also happened 27 years ago, which suggests a pattern, which means it didn't only happen once. When she was asked if she used that word, she said, "Of course."

    Will you listen to me for a change? The target of the insult was a straight man and it was used to suggest he was gay. Actual gay people that might be floating around reading Twitter are not involved and were not the intended target. Why do you care if a straight man calls another straight man a Queen? Of course being gay is something a straight man might not want to be called. Why would that matter to you?

    So why do we not hold everyone to the same standard? That is just stupid media bull****.

    I agree. Everyone should be held to the same standards.

    Liberals are expected to say stuff like that though. They get a free pass because they're on the same "side" as gays. If Deen wasn't a southern hick, she'd have been fine too.

    The Big Tent will always have room for their own, no matter what.

    He has expressed interest. Is Alec Baldwin interested in political office? The answer is 'yes' - CNN.com

    Not true at all. Dean will work again Just like Mel Gibson is starring in a new movie. Baldwin lost work last time he said something stupid. His show can't be camcelled cause it already was. Don Imus got fired and he is a lib. There is no double standard.

    I agree. Alec Baldwin is a douche, and should be held to the same standard. The thing is, the more you have, the more you have to lose. What does Alec Baldwin really have? He was on 30 Rock, but now it's cancelled. Now he's on a bunch of stupid Capital One commercials. He doesn't really have anything to lose. He's a douche, and everybody knows he's a douche, so it's not a huge surprise. Paula Deen paraded around like some kind of slutty gramma-type figure, making everyone like her, and then she ended up being not so nice. Either way, they are both wrong, and should both be held responsible for their actions. Paula Deen's punishment just hurts a lot more than Baldwin's.
