THE PLANK OCTOBER 21, 2008

Quote For The Day, 10/21

Alec Baldwin:

Several people decried SNL for giving [Sarah Palin] a spot on the show. You're kidding, right? The woman

is the Vice Presidential nominee of one of the two major parties in this country. Don't put her on SNL? With

all of her exposure and the Tina Fey performance? What reality are you in?

If you think an appearance on Saturday Night Live would sway voters and actually affect the outcome of

the election, you may have more contempt for the electorate of this country than the Republican National

Committee does. And that's a lot of contempt.

(via Ross Douthat, who also offers what may be the most delirious scene of Baldwin's career)
