Alec Baldwin: Sen. Inhofe Is a 'Whore' Who Should 'Retire to a Solar-Powered Gay Bar

News

Capital One spokesman Alec Baldwin added his voice to the political discourse this weekend, tweeting that Senator Inhofe is an "oil whore" who should "retire to a solar-powered gay bar."

The slur is likely a reference to Senator Inhofe's new book, The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future, and related promotional events.  In the book, Senator Inhofe maintains that only God can change the climate, and it is pure "arrogance" for us to think otherwise.

In a discussion about "climate deniers," Baldwin added three tweets:

'Oil Whore Jim Inhofe has betrayed every man and woman who lost their livelihood on the Gulf due to BP's overwhelming negligence...'

'Is there a bigger Oil Whore alive than James Inhofe?'

'...We need to have Inhofe retire to a solar-powered gay bar.'

Critics like Michelle Malkin have noted that in the wake of the Rush Limbaugh controversy, Capital One said that it would no longer air advertisements with Rush Limbaugh (though it is unclear if they ever did so in the first place).

So why, they ask, hasn't the company dropped Alec Baldwin as its spokesman, when he is using the same language as Mr. Limbaugh?

This isn't the first time Baldwin has made objectionable comments:
