I can’t help but feel we had many more liquor fueled rants and fist-fights and ‘faggot’ slurs from the steely-eyed old fellow. But, no, Alec Baldwin declared he’s quitting. Nobody’s clear yet on what Alec is quitting exactly, but in a new heavily publicized magazine cover story he laments publicity and hints at leaving his beloved Manhattan for good. If you check the moving company records, you’ll see that self-righteous progressive hypocrites move into the city far more often than they move out. Alec has even considered leaving show business altogether to get away from the the scrutiny of the paparazzi who don’t always follow the commands of his paid publicists:
If quitting the television business, the movie business, the theater, any component of entertainment, is necessary in order to bring safety and peace to my family, then that is an easy choice.
Read that as, there’s no way in hell he has the testicular fortitude to make this move. Despite being fired from a talk show on network that only has twenty-seven viewers, Alec continues to rake in the bucks, the attention, and the drama Irish drunks crave from the bottom of their glasses. He can’t leave the action. It’s like Jordan quitting basketball or more aptly, Lamar Odom quitting the rock. Self-pity is Alec’s crack. He’s not going anywhere.
