Judge Wants Psychologist to Assess Baldwin

At issue this time is Alec Baldwin's relationship with his ex-wife, actress Kim Basinger, and their ten-year-old daughter. The judge in that case has actually ordered Baldwin to see a court-appointed psychologist to determine whether he is mentally fit to see his daughter more often than the court currently allows. (For the record, each litigant has said that the other is crazy numerous times, not merely in public but, more to the point, in court filings.)

When Alec Baldwin first stood up on national television and said that someone ought to stone Henry Hyde to death, and the TV host just happened to have an oxygen tank and mask handy to put over his mouth when he hyperventilated at the end of his screed, I originally thought the whole thing was a stupid put-up job. But now--in light of Baldwin's performances on the radio and a recent dust-up involving an off-Broadway show in which he is involved--I'm not so sure. In any event, I can't imagine why anyone should take him seriously as a political commentator.
