Alec Baldwin, Opens mouth and Inserts Foot!

Alec Baldwin’s new motto should be  “Open Mouth Insert Foot”!  If you haven’t seen it yet, Alec Baldwin was on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’.  David asked Alec if he would like to have more kids?  He responded that he would but he might need to get a Filipino or Russian mail order bride first.  And the shit hit the fan! 

Hot assed, Alec Baldwin has been slammed and damned for his comment.  Supposedly, even some Filipino officials took offense to his statement.  And we all know how Filipino’s love their ‘Late Show’!  NOT!

Wednesday, poor Alec, with tail tucked between his legs, issued an apology for joking that he might expand his family by getting  a Filipino or Russian mail-order bride during his appearance on “The Late Show”.

His apology is as follows, “I’d like to offer an apology and a clarification to remarks I made recently, While on the David Letterman program.  I joked that I might need a “mail-order bride'” to achieve the goal of having more children in my life.  I believe that most people understood that this was a joke and took it as such. (A dated reference, no dobt, and another sign of my advancing age.)  However, I do apologize to anyone who took offense.”

“The comments of some Philippine government officials come as no surprise to me, either, ” Baldwin wrote.  “even the one by a former action film star-turned-Senator who beckoned me to come to the Philippines so he could ‘beat’ me over my comment.  Such anger and frustration about the issue of sex trafficking is understandable.”

For the sake of argument, lets imagine for a moment that Alec did mean what he said.  I am sure everyone knew what he said was in jest, but some people saw it as a way to target someone and beat them down just to be mean in our “Politically Correct obsessed society”.  What if he did mean it?  So what?  If that is his opinion he shouldn’t have to lie and be forced to apologize because someone else disagrees!  Maybe he likes those kinds of women.  Who are we to dictate who someone can or can not date or marry. 

I know you are all probably thinking no, its about sex trade.  But he didn’t say anything about the sex trade.  Some people may have assumed that was what he was referring to.  But again, then he would be apologize for what someone else assumed? 

Obama made a “Politically Incorrect” crack about kids in the Special Olympics on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and didn’t get as much flack as Alec Baldwin has over something that could just be his opinion.  I want to hear what you think.
