ALEC BALDWIN/JACK CAFFERTY
Writing for The Huffington Post, actor Alec Baldwin slams CNN political commentator Jack Cafferty. Baldwin was furious that Cafferty “spit on me” and questioned his credentials to run for political office. Cafferty noted that comedian Al Franken (a friend of Baldwin’s) was elected to the Senate but at least he’s “Harvard educated.”
Baldwin points out that he has a drama degree from NYU and sniffs, “Perhaps New York University should print on its undergraduate drama degrees ‘Warning: the bestowing of this degree precludes you from seeking public office per Jack Cafferty of CNN.'”
Baldwin then saves his best shot for last. He writes:
“I would like to make a deal with Cafferty. Jack, you don’t tell people that a career in the performing arts disqualifies them from seeking elected office, and I won’t say publicly that your being convicted of leaving the scene of an accident in which you struck a cyclist and then ran two red lights while you were pursued by the police and were subsequentally ordered to serve 70 hours of community service back in May of 2003 disqualifies you from posing as a “Man of the People” on a major cable news network.”
Oh, snap! Baldwin’s personal attack on Cafferty is so awesome that it was featured on the brand new media-themed website Mediate.com. It received over 1,300 comments on The Huffington Post.
