Quite possibly the only person having a worse week than President Obama is liberal actor Alec Baldwin. But whereas Obama has snatched a greater defeat from the jaws of a defeat, Baldwin actually won his court case against a stalker and had her put in jail. Rather than celebrate, Baldwin decided to once again lash out at the paparazzi, shouting out either “cocksucking fag” (if you believe TMZ) or “cocksucking fathead” (if you believe Baldwin).

While there is disagreement about the second word of the two-word epithet, there is little doubt that the first word can reasonably be interpreted as an anti-gay putdown.

That apparently never occurred to Baldwin.

Of course, he deleted his tweet acknowledging his ignorance. That’s how he rolls.

Definitely. But will his new bosses at MSNBC think so?
