Get 'em Tiger

Today I share with you the following quote from the Huffington Post with which Alec Baldwin responded to a remark by Jack Cafferty that he is unfit to run for office:

"Don't tell people that a career in the performing arts disqualfies them from elected office, and I won't say that your being convicted of leaving the scene of an accident in which you struck a cyclist and then ran two red lights while pursued by the police in May of 2003 disqualifies you from posing as a "Man of the People" on a major cable news network."

Burn.

As far as I'm concerned Baldwin has a free blow job coming for that one, (although not from me as I am a happily married woman and long ago left that business behind) and not so much because Cafferty is a douche bag who had it coming or because I'm particularly riled up about TV news show hosts giving celebrities with political leanings a hard time. I really don't care.

No. It's because so rarely does one have exactly the right words to say when confronted with douche bag-ery. Even when we do have the right words we seldom have the opportunity to say them at exactly the right moment.

Hurray to Alec for being prepared.

I for one, typically don't think of the right comeback to an insult until well into my drive home and then end up just mumbling it to myself over and over like a crazy person.
