Which Is the Better Baldwin Brother?

I'm afraid we have another Baldwin brother threatening to leave the country if the candidate of his choice fails to win the White House! This time it's Alec's far less successful brother Stephen who told Laura Ingraham who was filling in for Bill O'Reilly that if Obama is elected he'll leave the country. http://www.observer.com/2008/style/one-more-reason-hollywood-support-obama I guess he was actually making fun of brother Alec's threat to leave if Bush were elected in 2000 but, let's be honest - Alec said he'd leave if Bush were ELECTED and he wasn't, he was SELECTED - so he really didn't go back on his promise, did he? Stephen was complaining about all the celebrities who are supporting Obama and called it "the most stupidest thing", proving his grammar is as bad as his politics! Isn't it interesting that a right-wing pundit would have an actor on as her guest to make her point about celebrity endorsements and that he would then make an endorsement of his own? I mean, if he wants to make the point that nobody is interested in what Hollywood says when it comes to politics shouldn't he have kept his own opinion to himself? (Note: We may not "care" what celebrities think but we care LESS about what Stephen Baldwin thinks than we do about what actual stars think...) Annie

It is interesting that Americans think what celebrities think is not important. The beautiful image that America enjoyed all over the world (before Dubya came to power)was created by Hollywood. Women all over the world love American men and men all over the world love American women because the movies from Hollywood portrayed Americans in a positive way. American soldiers were loved all over the world because, in Hollywood movies sold to millions of people across the world, the American soldier always wins and he is the guy or girl who always fights fair. Well, maybe the stars are hated because the positive image they have sold to the world about America is making people run here to find the 'Heaven' they see in the movies.

Did you mean to say that you don't see why their opinions should matter 'as' anyone else's? Nobody said their opinions should matter 'more than anyone else's', if I remember correctly.

Have you seen Daniel on Celebrity Fit Club? Now there's a joke of a Baldwin brother. I happen to like Stephen much better than Alec. And at least I've never heard of him calling one of his children a pig.

I'm afraid I've never had the pleasure of watching the Celebrity Fit Club. It just occurred to me that the fact we have so many "celebrity" reality shows is a good indication we have too many lower than D-List celebrities who can't find any real work. Good point about Stephen not calling one of his children a pig. Does he have any children? There is simply MUCH too much I've yet to learn about Stephen Baldwin...lol Annie

"Which is the better Baldwin brother?" Annie...!!! You made a major error. You can't use better and Baldwin in the same sentence, it doesn't fit ever. In order to make the question progamerly correct, this is what should have been done: "Which Baldwin is the least craptacular?" There, fixed. If you couldn't tell I don't care about the Balding brothers. Oops, I got the name wrong. Meh. Alec said he'd leave, he didn't leave, no surprise; he's a Baldlose, this shouldn't be suprising. And on the other hand, Stephen said something grammatically incorrect? Yes I see it... it deserves a nice */facepalm*. No surprise here either. Stephen is also in violation of the progamerly correct mechanics of English. The correct way to write "the most stupidest thing" is "everybody fails". Anyways, so what's being said about this Baldlose brother is that people care even less about him than the other celebrities. Translated to my world, that's an incredibly low scale. Annie, maybe you know. What's the rank below "fail"?

What, you're criticizing one of the stars of Celebrity Apprentice? (Honest, I didn't know this until I read it online last night...lol) "Craptacular" - what a great word, I'll definitely have to remember that and use it, with full credit to you of course. What IS below "fail"? Annie

Celebrities who make comments like that are pathetic. Barbara Streisand, Rosie O'Donnell, and Alec Baldwin all made those stupid claims about how they would leave the country and not one of them had the guts to do it. You can go and argue your little semantics about that election, but Bush won it fair and square based on the rules as written in the constitution. Even if you refuse to believe Bush was ELECTED in 2000, he was clearly ELECTED in 2004 so they should have left then if not in 2000. Did their promises have an expiration date? Stephen Baldwin is largely the joke of the Baldwin family. Frankly, without watching the show I can't even assume he was serious. It sounds like something he'd say as a joke to mock Alec. Either way, it has no more credibility than the same remarks in the past.

I much prefer when actors and celebrities stay out of politics altogether. Their endorsements are not warranted, in my opinion, even if that politician stands for a belief system that is popular in the entertainment industry. A good example of that would be Barbra Streisand who was fully endorsing Hillary Clinton, but not is endorsing Obama. I'm not really much of a fan of any of the Baldwin brothers, but if I had to pick one, it would have to be Alec. He is probably one of the smartest of his brood and the most successful. As for Stephen Baldwin, I know he has become a born-again Christian, so perhaps this is why he is sto opposed to anyone he considers a liberal being voted into the White House. My question to him though would have to be, "Where would you go to live that you think is better, if not here?". Doesn't sound very American to me.
