Alec Baldwin

An Emmy- and Academy Award-nominated, and Golden Globe Award-winning actor.
Quote
"I would say to people: Assume I've done everything. I want you to assume I've had sex with animals, that I've imbibed every kind of drink, that I've poured absinthe on my corn flakes during a period of time. I've done every debauched, filthy, insidious . . . everything. Just assume that for the argument, and now -- next question."

In response to a question asking if he would come clean about "the skeletons in his closet" if he went into politics, as quoted in The New York Post.

Comment: That's a lot of vitriol coming from Alec. Aren't liberals supposed to be thoughtful, compassionate, caring, and loving? That image will soon be destroyed, if Hollywood "stars" don't keep their mouths closed.

And: "As long as I have my money, I'm getting the f*** out of here and I'm gonna leave y'all to your own devices." Ms Banks, why are you still here?

Roseanne Barr

Actress, comedian, writer, television producer, and director, Barr began her career in stand-up comedy at clubs before gaining fame for her role in the sitcom "Roseanne.' The show was a hit and lasted nine seasons, from 1988 to 1997.
Quote
"Part of my platform is, of course, that the guilty must be punished, and we can no longer let our children see our guilty leaders getting away with murder because it teaches children that they don't have to have morals and that as long as they have guns and are bullies they will win, and I don't think that's a good message. I do say that I am for the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of the worst of the guilty [. . .] I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay back anything over $100 million in personal wealth [. . .] and if they are unable to live on that amount, then they should go to the re-education camps. And if that doesn't help, then be beheaded."

Comment: Roseanne Barr has announced she is running for president. Yes, president of the United States in 2012. No, really! Ms. Barr dropped out of high school when she was 17 years old. After a car accident, she was admitted to a mental institution, claiming she was having nightmares and memory loss. She left the institute less than a year later. Soon after, she gave birth to her first daughter, Brandi Brown, and gave her up for adoption. She gained notoriety when she gave a screeching, crotch-grabbing performance of "The Star Spangled Banner" at a baseball game. [Source.] Is that a record to run on, or what?

Meredith Baxter

Actress and producer. She has been married three times and has five children. In 2009, The National Enquirer reported that Baxter was seen on a lesbian cruise with a female friend. This led to speculation she might be a lesbian. She came out as a lesbian during an interview with Matt Lauer, and on the Frank DeCaro Show on Sirius-XM OutQ 102. She lives with her partner, Nancy Locke, whom she has known since 2005.

Quote
"I realized, I was so un-self-examined, I could have been a Republican, but no, I'm just gay. That's much better, don't you think?"

Paul Begala

Political consultant, commentator, and former advisor to President Bill Clinton. He co-hosted CNN's program, Crossfire until June 2005. He served as Research Professor of Public Policy at Georgetown University Public Policy Institute, and a Sanders Political Leadership Scholar at the University of Georgia School of Law.
Quote
"I am very sorry for calling those fatcar plutocrat Republicans 'dirtbags.' Doing so was grossly unfair. To bags of dirt. After all, dirt is good. Things grow from the dirt. I myself raise tomatoes and corn and pumpkins, jalapenos and cucumbers and lettuce -- all from the good earth. No, it was too kind, too generous to call them dirtbags. Probably better to call them oil bags or toxic-waste-bags or chemical-pollutant-bags. So I'm sorry."

Comment: Demented? Really? The kids are mad or insane? (That's the definition of demented.) Turns out that in general, kids get better educations when they're homeschooled, and at a lower cost! (Article.) That's rather interesting, don't you think? High-paid "professionals" don't do nearly as good a job as common, ordinary parents with no teaching experience. What's the liberal's reaction to this? Kids should be in school longer and teachers salaries should be increased.

Comment: First of all, I don't think there are any "climate change deniers." Everybody thinks the climate changes. Everybody! Those who still believe the earth's temperature is rising as a result of CO2 concentrations haven't noticed there hasn't been any significant temperature change in the last 18 years or so. Many (like myself) who believe vaccinations can cause harm have personal experience or experiences of friends to guide their thinking. What thinking, Ms. Behar are you depending on? Any at all? Or are you depending on just raw emotion?

Comment: Does she really believe this? Really? Republicans are passing legislation to keep women "in their place?" To keep them barefoot and pregnant? Ms. Behar is a good example of being so biased, so hateful, she'll believe anything bad about Republicans. She would probably believe they want to pass legislation to kill the elderly. Oops, that's old news.

Harry Belafonte

Born of Jamaican and Martiniquan descent, he is a singer, actor, and social activist. Dubbed the "King of Calypso," Belafonte is perhaps best known for singing the "Banana Boat Song." He has been an advocate for civil rights and humanitarian causes, and was a vocal critic of the policies of the George W. Bush Administration.
Quote
"The greatest threat of all is the undermining of our Constitution and the systematic attacks against the inalienable rights of the citizens of this nation, rights that are guaranteed by out Constitution. At the vanguard of this insidious attack is the Tea party."

Said at a "One Nation" rally, October 2, 2010. See Mr. Belafonte make these comments during a C-SPAN telecast of the rally.

Comment: What? Mr. Belafonte, are you out of your mind? That's like saying the Nazis were the good guys in World War II. That's like saying Mother Teresa was a great force for evil in India. That's like saying up is down and in is out. How can people think this way? It astounds me. As the Rightnetwork points out, "Maybe Harry didn’t hear the latest, that 70% of Americans support the tea party movement on the issues." Mr. Belafonte is showing the world he's a fool.

Comment: After his address, Biden called for transferring the debt of impoverished Third World nations to the debt of the United States. I suppose he believes that will not diminish America's financial security. And that it will, in fact, help advance our collective security, economic interests, and our values. He said, "Our administration has set an ambitious goal to [. . .] cancel the debt of the world's poorest countries." This man is dangerous. As vice president, he puts our nation at risk.

Comment: It's an interesting statement, except, as the article observed, "Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929 [not FDR]. There also was no television at the time; TV wasn't introduced to the public until a decade later, at the 1939 World's Fair."
So, was Biden ridiculed and laughed at for his stupid remark, as was Dan Quayle and his "potato"-spelling incident? Goodness no. Biden is a staunch Democrat and the media love Democrats. Biden was given a pass.

Mr. Brauer also tweeted: "I'm being attacked on Twitter for wishing one of Ted Cruz's public lice to experience the pain her boss is inflicting on Americans." Then in a moment of thoughtful reflection, he spouted: "Busy blocking the tapeworms that have slithered out of hellspawn @amandacarpenter's asshole. How's your day so far?" Later, presumably after someone with vastly more wisdom and common sense spoke to him, Mr. Brauer tweeted: "I am truly sorry for my tweet. I was very upset and lashed out. Your kids are not fair game either. My apologies." So I guess that's supposed to make everything okay.

Quote
"Michelle [Obama] is so authentic, and so real, and so today, and so, you know, J. Crew, and the whole price-point thing and not designer clothes. . . . With Michelle, you can almost feel those warm arms. You know, there's a kind of real red-blooded feel to her. But there's also -- I mean she's almost, like, overtaking Oprah, I think, as the kind of inspirational 'it' girl at this point."

Said on the CBS Early Show, April 3, 2009.

Comment: Ms. Brown's fascination and infatuation with Michelle Obama is apparently unbounded. She writes [The First Lady] has similar qualities to the Queen: dedication, authenticity, and a very different attitude to clothes than [France’s 'ravishing' first lady] Carla Bruni." She slobbers on, "[Michelle is] so big-time. So self-confident. So devoid of rainy, British diffidence. In a country [England] where most political wives and female members of Parliament are the stylistic equivalent of a tufted ottoman, Michelle’s kind of striding self-assurance, glamour, and broad demographic appeal feels thrillingly 21st-century. The fact that she's African American adds an inspirational magic."

Quote
"[It is] the moral responsibility of black jurors to emancipate some guilty black outlaws. [. . .] [My] goal is the subversion of American criminal justice, at least as it now exists."

Comment: Some would say that advocating jury nullification on the basis of race is irresponsible, contrary to the idea of equal justice, and downright dangerous. That would certainly by my reaction. He takes an oath to defend and protect the U.S. Constitution, then works to subvert it. Quite a guy!
