Alec Baldwin Just Can’t Quit AOL, Even Though It Employs ‘the Dumbest Bastards in the World’

What is notorious "corn-iac" Alec Baldwin up to on the eve of 30 Rock's live episode? Huffington Post essay writing, where he heaps praise on Waiting for "Superman" ("This is a monumentally important film") and attacks the Internet's most ancient web portal. "Today, on AOL's homepage, I am accused of insulting actor Jim Parsons for sending him a congratulatory gift basket [after his Emmy win], inside of which I added a card that read 'Congratulations you talented, charming bastard,'" wrote Baldwin. "I thought that was a joke. I think Parsons knew that. I think anyone on Earth could see that. Except the eighth degree, black belt idiots that compose the AOL homepage." Still, Baldwin isn't making the jump to Gmail just yet: "I'm still a loyal AOL user. In spite of the fact that its homepage content is written by the dumbest bastards in the world." [HuffPo]
