Alec Baldwin Apologizes To Himself On 'SNL'

Posing as the airline pilot of the flight he was kicked off of, Alec Baldwin apologized to himself on "Saturday Night Live."

The actor appeared on the sketch program's "Weekend Update" on Saturday night to lampoon Tuesday's incident, in which he was kicked of an American Airlines flight for refusing to stop playing a mobile phone game before takeoff.

As a Southern, mustachioed airline pilot, Baldwin issued an apology for the incident. The joke, though, was how obvious the ploy was.

The actor referred to himself as an "American treasure" who was playing "a word game for smart people."

"Weekend Update" host Seth Meyers repeatedly questioned the thinly veiled performance, asking Baldwin, "Are you sure this is the right way to handle this?"

    It is so very sad that SNL has to stoop to bringing Alec Baldwin on the show at all. The show is so bad they can't get anyone on that makes it worth staying up that late. Oh, how I long for the good old days when SNL was worth watching, where is "Mr. Bill" anyway? How many of you even remember Mr. Bill? SNL has gone down the tubes so far I believe it is lost forever!!

    This is the same liberal idiot who suggested somebody should kill President George W. Bush and repeatedly called his own daughter "a pig". His behavior is typical of some of the Hollywood elites who think they are above the law and scoff at the rules of common decency.

    The guy has money and nothing to do but look in the mirror and think he is better than anyone else. He suffers from 'egomaticism' or (inflamed ego). He is a jerk. --- and needs to stay the heck away from politics--- maybe he and Gore will get married.
