Alec Baldwin - Alec Baldwin Takes Aim At Williams, Jr. Over Latest Obama Remark

Outspoken actor Alec Baldwin has sparked a war of words with grizzled Hank Williams, JR. after taking aim at the country singer over his recent remarks about President Barack Obama.
The fervent Republican's anthem Are You Ready For Some Football? was pulled from its weekly slot at the beginning of Espn sports show Monday Night Football last year (11) after he compared Obama to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler during a breakfast TV interview, and now Williams, Jr. is upsetting Democrats again.
This time, at the Stockyards Music Festival in Texas on Sunday (02Sep12), he called the President "a Muslim who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays," adding, "We hate him!"
And Baldwin, a hardcore Democrat, has opted to respond on Obama's behalf, tweeting: "If Hank Williams Jr. wasn't such a pathetic, wheezing fossil, I'd have a talk with him."
