Putting the looney back in the looney left

By

A judge has told Alec Baldwin that he needs to get a psychological evaluation, something which many of us have believed necessary since he went on television and said

"...if we were in another country... We would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and we'd kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families"

This time it is not politics but a custody battle prompting the call for evaluation. The AP reports:

A judge wants a psychologist to evaluate Alec Baldwin to determine whether he is fit to see his 10—year—old daughter more often as part of an ongoing custody battle with former wife Kim Basinger.

Superior Court Commissioner Maren E. Nelson said the question is whether the actor is attempting to turn the couple's child against Basinger.

"Whether that is taking place or not, I cannot determine," Nelson said. "Someone, an evaluator, needs to spend time with Ireland and the parents to work on that issue."

Neither actor attended Friday's court hearing.

Baldwin was given a week to accept the court—appointed psychologist or the judge said she would select another one.

While there are fine, intelligent, decent human beings in Hollywood, that community has produced a disproportionate share of looney leftists. Why anyone would pay particular attention to the political rantings of actors (as opposed to cops, bakers, or prostitutes, for that matter, remains a mystery.
