    You are worthless Alec Baldwin…

    Although I have to admit a guilty pleasure, I like Alec Baldwin playing the conservative on 30 Rock.  Yeah, I know it is intended as a parody, but it is the only time Alec Baldwin makes any sense.

    Are we talking about pervy, bloated toad-man Alec Baldwin? I’ll bet we are.

    I used to like it too, but it got old pretty quick. I stopped watching it after awhile. I also liked him in some skits on SNL.

    They already did that movie.

    It was called “Falling Down”.  Starred Michael Douglas.

    “I just want a burger!”.

    “Did you know, Beth, that in some South American countries it’s still legal to kill your wife if she insults you? ”

    Yeah, but it would be better with Baldwin.

    Don’t forget Jeff’s noting on the tear down of Herman Cain by fellow Republicans:

    Krauthammer, et tu?  No surprise there.

    If you want a good and modern take on the Falling Down kind of film, check out Michael Caine in Harry Brown.

    I don’t get the context of Jeff’s tweet.

    “How ’bout this?” leads me to believe this is a movie pitch.

    Well, yeah, but out-of-the-blue, how is that funny?

    The last performance  by Alec Baldwin that I liked was this one.

    That was his peak.

    Check him out in 2000’s State And Main, written and directed by David Mamet.  It’s the movie where, after seeing it, I said to myself: ‘Mamet’s moving to the Right’.
