    If you wanted to personally make him one, I won't hold it against you. I'll even supply the videocamera and ether.

    TMZ would give me a fortune for the tape.

    Which is A-OK because it doesn't involve poop!
    What inflammatory, dumb remarks, and I don't know why you bothered to quote me when you aren't responding to what I said.

    Of course you don't know why

    The Sanctimonious believe that they are the Supreme Arbiters of Morality, and if they say that poop goes too far, then that's how it is. And if they compare people who disagree with them with the Holocaust or serial killers, then that is not going too far.

    Guess if you attack a conservative brand, good for you - attack a liberal brand, they can't show you the door fast enough.

    But that said, MSNBC knows full well they have zero conservative viewers and precious few liberal viewers so keep the only viewers you have happy - it's good business practice.

    It seems you and Alec are on the same page.

    Alec Baldwin, Fired by MSNBC, Asks Why Not Martin Bashir?


    [...]

    Baldwin came under fire for allegedly using a gay slur against a photographer on the street, while Bashir called for Republican tea party favorite Sarah Palin to be administered unprintable punishments from the days of slavery. Bashir's remarks were scripted and made it onto his program.

    "Martin Bashir's on the air, and he made his comment on the air! I dispute half the comment I made," Baldwin told Gothamist.

    Baldwin acknowledged using profanity during his verbal attack, but insisted he did not use a gay slur. Bashir made his comments on a Friday show and apologized the next Monday. MSNBC has made no comment about punishing him.

    Why NOT Martin Bashir?

    I didn't think it would be long before Baldwin said "But what about him"

    Re: MSNBC fires Baldwin over anti-gay slurs

    Bashir gets more of a pass than Baldwin because Baldwin attacked gays, while Bashir makes defecation requests targeting conservatives.

    It's the same reasoning behind why Juan Williams would get fired for making disparaging comments about Cheney before he would for saying the same things about Pelosi.

    Know your audience.
