“Let me tell you, everybody just relax. Everybody's either a wop, a nigger, a kike, a chink, a fairy, a mick …. everybody's something, so why don't we all just calm down,” Rivers said.

    Be on the look out. The word police are watching!!
    What Alec Baldwin reportedly said may have been tactless and offensive, but it is more of a reflection on himself and his temperment. Last time I checked, we still have freedom of speech in this country.
    The way MSNBC gave Baldwin a “time out” over an incident that occured not at work, but during his personal time, was a bit much. He may even rethink his liberal views and become a conservative over this one.
