It it weren't real, the sharp words between actor Alec Baldwin and Hank Williams Jr. would be great entertainment. Baldwin responded to the country singer's comments about President Obama with an early morning tweet that called Bocephus a "pathetic, wheezing fossil."

He then added "broken-down, senile, racist coot" to his unflattering list of characterizations about the country singer. Previously, the Williams, Jr. told fans in Iowa that, “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!” Later, he blasted Obama for his stance on gay marriage.

Is Alec Baldwin out of line, or was he right to criticize Hank Williams, Jr.? You decide in today's readers poll.
