I would think that Alec Baldwin using macho homophobic baiting to insult a right-winger would be the grossest thing I’d read from a male lefty celebrity today:
SEAN HANNITY: You don’t have the courage to answer questions.
ALEC BALDWIN: And what are you gonna do? And what are you going to do about it, Sean Hannity. If I come on your program, what are you going to do?
MARK LEVIN: He’s going to show that you have a two digit IQ – that’s what he’s gonna do. [...]
BALDWIN: And who’s that – who’s your little cabin boy there with you.
LEVIN: I’m not a cabin boy, butt-boy.
BALDWIN: What are you doing there, cabin boy? … I now dub you Sean Hannity’s cabin boy.
Gee, thank goodness we have such articulate, smart lefty celebs to make our case for us, right?
Anyhow, I would have thought that would be the most annoying example of male lefty macho hateful bullshit I’d encounter today. But that’s because I hadn’t counted on Sean Penn weighing in on his funny doll of a famous right-wing woman:
Hollywood activist SEAN PENN has a plastic doll of conservative US columnist ANN COULTER that he likes to abuse when angry. The Oscar-winner actor has hated Coulter ever since she blacklisted his director father LEO PENN in her book TREASON. And he takes out his frustrations with Coulter, who is a best-selling author, lawyer and television pundit, on the Barble-like doll. In an interview with The New Yorker magazine, Penn reveals, “We violate her. There are cigarette burns in some funny places.
A great actor, but still an asshat.
