Sockpuppet Friday (Alec Baldwin cogintive dissonance edition)

Filed under: General — Karl @ 10:55 am

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sockpuppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself.

Sockpuppet comments about the Republican primary race are strictly prohibited. If you wish to use sockpuppets for that purpose, confine your comments to this thread. Same goes for any discussion that is not funny where people want to get angry at each other. Offending comments will be summarily deleted and the violators flogged.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.

Film Actors’ Guild president Alec Baldwin has never been accused of being the sharpest tool in the drawer.  On Victims of Communism Day, Baldwin told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell of Republicans’ political woes:

Well, you know, things for these guys aren’t going that well. You know the, the economy may stumble. It probably won’t stumble that badly between now and the election. For those people who look at these very handy benchmarks like the Dow, the Dow is still staying pretty well above 13,000. Which that kind of crowd of Romney’s really, really goes for. ***

And here’s Alec talking to GQ in a new interview:

GQ: Yesterday you were speaking about how Mitt Romney is out of touch with the American people. If getting pizza with firemen isn’t the right way to remedy that, what’s a more appropriate food to show that you’re down with regular people?

Alec Baldwin: I think right now, and I know this is a very glib thing to say, but I think right now it would be to take a book full of food stamps and go buy whatever meals you can with a food stamp provision on a weekly basis. Because although welfare has been cut, as we all know from a lot of reportage over the last several months that food stamp use has soared. I think the most American thing you can do today is go stand in line and see what your weekly allotment of food stamps will buy you.

He thinks he’s being cute, but when Alec Baldwin joins Newt Gingrich in calling Barack Obama the “food stamp president,” he may want to rethink the notion that the GOP is running scared.

  2. (BTW – one good reason to “Ding!” is to test that your post has inexplicably turned off comments.)

    Karl (6ac03c)

  3. Let me just paraphrase one of my earlier comments. That actor Alec Baldwin, like a lot his fellow actors, is no good, lying bastard. He can lie out of both sides of his mouth at the same time, and if he ever caught himself telling the truth, he’d lie just to keep his hand in. And, fellas, you can quote me on this one!

  5. Sorry, fellas. I do like to speak plainly, but I do like to speak correctly. Baldwin is a no good, lying bastard. Now, I’d better get going as Bess is expecting me to sit down for lunch.

    I thought food stamps were a monthly thing did this change?

    That’s not the problem – Alec Baldwin is assuming a person buys only one week’s worth of groceries at a time – no more and no less.

    The problem is I think there are no more food stamp books! There’s now an EBT card — a debit card that can carry both cash (welfare) and food stamps.

    Sammy Finkelman (6ae430)

  17. It is safe to say that Alec Baldwin isn’t living on food stamps.

    Kevin M (bf8ad7)

  18. While checking out the lower price grocery stores to see what a person on food stamps can buy I found this wonder thing called “London Broil”. I bought some and had my chef prepare it, and it almost tastes like steak, at a fraction of the cost of cheap steak like wegu. It does taste so much like steak that I am sure people on food stamps are eating it instead of steak. Whatever it is made of is certainly unhealthy and killing them. We have to something to prevent corporations from selling this type of fake food to people on food stamps.

  67. Dear Miss Manners:

    I spotted a spelling error in (unbelievable but true) the very title of a blog post recently. I thought of ignoring it, but after some consideration, thought it more expedient to correct the matter, and in addition, to point out how odd I thought it was that no one had corrected it before myself. What would you have done in my place?

  70. Gentle Quite Right Commenter:

    Thank you for your question. Generally speaking, it is always a far greater error to point out someone else’s mistake, unless of course grave consequences would result from the ignoring of such a mistake, such as noticing the wrong pill being administered at a pharmacy, for example.

    Miss Mannaers would require more information before knowing the results of such an error as you describe. Was the blog post creating a trip hazard?

    Miss Manners (498806)

  71. Honesty requires Miss Manners to point out that the typo in the previous post was in fact not a test. That was an actual typo, and Miss Manners is gently laughing at herself over her cup of tea.
