Alec Baldwin now a pundit 

Yes, big-mouth liberal Alec Baldwin is getting his own show on MSNBC, and already he’s garnering publicity.

In TV Guide, he called Uma Thurman’s billionaire baby daddy Arpad Busson a “pockmarked toady” for saying Baldwin was only a TV star.

Known for lashing out at paparazzi and then apologizing, Baldwin will channel his rage into being a bona fide pundit on “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” which debuts Oct. 11. It might just be a welcome relief from the overly cerebral “All In With Chris Hayes” and from brainy network darling Rachel Maddow.
