Alec Baldwin pens supportive Anthony Weiner column, then curses at Huffington Post readers 

 Alec Baldwin's  latest piece at the Huffington Post marvels at Anthony Weiner's scandal and this crazy modern world of new media.

Weiner is the modern, high functioning man. The fact that he is married is just one, albeit a huge, factor. I know many people who divorce over such issues of online betrayal. Appointment sex with your spouse doesn't always arrive when you need it most. A modern cell phone, loaded with contacts of willing fellow players, has a table with a red checkered table cloth ready for you at virtually any time. . .

"Let he who is without sin..." Baldwin concluded.

But while Baldwin clearly noted the dangers of social media in his column, he seemed to fall prey to the same trap. As Huffington Post readers sneered at Baldwin's article in the comments, Baldwin responded on Twitter. 

"What I have offered on HuffPo is an explanation of, not an excuse for Weiner's behavior. Big difference." Baldwin wrote, "A lot, a real lot, of sanctimonious d-bags on HuffPo."
