What Changes Will We Make After the Giffords Shooting?

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, September 22nd 2011.

Flash-forward to December 7th, 2011, a date which will live in irony:

As Greg Pollowitz writes, “Alec Baldwin Kicked Off Flight for Acting Like . . . Alec Baldwin:”

And after this, does Baldwin apologize? Nope. He feels the need to slime the flight attendant:

#theresalwaysunited Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950′s find jobs as flight attendants.

Keep in mind this is the same jackass who showed up at Occupy Wall Street to declare his support for the “99%.” Unemployed losers in tents get his appreciation. A hard-working flight attendant gets treated like crap.

And here endeth today’s lesson on liberal hypocrisy.

At the risk of quoting one the three foot high characters in the Star Wars series who isn’t an Ewok, no, there is another.


And flash-forward again to yesterday:

As John Nolte wrote yesterday at Andrew’s Big Hollywood site:

While we can appreciate how thesaurusly hard Baldwin worked to impress with his tweet, I think we can all agree that Breitbart proved that truth combined with simplicity still cuts the deepest. [Indeed — Ed.]

There’s a lesson here: People who berate their daughters and working class airline personnel might want to ease up on the rock throwing.

Though to be fair, it does provide us with at least one definitive answer to the TV performer’s query from a year ago.
