    Capital One keeps Alec Baldwin

    Looks like Alec Baldwin joined the "Sen. Inhofe who is a whore" group and added an anti-gay slur and what does Capital One do?

    The Blaze asks why Capital One can remain associated with someone who calls a congressman a whore, while dumping Rush Limbaugh? That's a bogus comparison. Politicians are legally and morally treated differently than private citizens. Calling a congressman a whore is nothing like calling a private citizen, even one who is testifying in front of Congress, a slut.

    Besides, based on congressional approval levels, probably 80-90% think the congressman IS a whore.

    I don't care if Capital One keeps or drops Alec Baldwin. He's a relatively funny guy who thinks he knows a lot more than he actually does. He's also a polarizing figure that with a history of outbursts that indicate that he is either mentally unstable, a jerk, or both. I say both, and I don't think his endorsement of a product or service would ever encourage me to buy it.

    One of the dictionary definitions of a whore is " A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain." How does that apply to just about everybody in Congress?

    I don't blame you. Even I find me distasteful.
