The New Civility: Now with 25% More Thermonuclear Rage

Past performance is no guarantee of future results:

“What Changes Will We Make After the Giffords Shooting?”

— Alec Baldwin, January 15th, 2011, at the Huffington Post.

“Alec Baldwin Goes Nuts on Twitter After Davis Execution: Attacks Cheney, Rumsfeld and Michelle Malkin.”

— Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters earlier this morning.

Click over to Newsbusters for the screen caps of Baldwin’s patented rage-by-numbers routine, and to RightScoop for some of the Tweets from Alec’s most devoted fans. At Newsbusters, Noel adds, “How fitting that this kind, open-minded, thoughtful man will be hosting the season premiere of NBC’s Saturday Night Live this weekend.”

If he’s using the show as an audition for the primetime line-up on MSNBC, he’d likely make the cut, particularly if he dials the intensity up a notch or two.
