Alec Baldwin: Show-Biz Bloviator

Alec Baldwin is an actor whose work I sometimes love (especially on “30 Rock”). Alec Baldwin as a political commentator is another matter. His piece on Anthony Weiner, put up this week on Huff Post, reminded me of what is said about Mrs. Candor in “The School for Scandal”: “I never think her friends in such danger as when [she] comes to their defense.” Baldwin is merely expressing his free speech rights, but if he were to exercise the same lack of logic as mayor of New York as he employs on Huff Post, I would fear greatly for the future of my fair city.
