Daddy dearest?

Quite a few people are talking about Alec Baldwin’s voicemail tirade at his 11-year-old daughter. Some are expressing a bit of surprise and dismay at this, saying that it seems a bit out of character for him.

Apparently they’ve forgotten that in 1998, on the eve of Bill Clinton’s impeachment, Alec Baldwin went on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” and called for Representative Henry Hyde to be hauled out of his home and stoned, along with killing his wife and children. (This, of course, was later explained away as a joke.)

Perhaps Baldwin heard rumors that, when she turns 18, she might register as a Republican?

Update (Lorie): Baldwin has now filed papers to have Basinger held in contempt of court for releasing their daughter’s phone messages to the press.
