Alec Baldwin--he of stoning Republican fame-- is notoriously liberal. But even he couldn't embrace some of the rhetoric coming out of the Occupy Wall Street crowd. CNS News reported:

While mingling with protestors at the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in lower Manhattan, actor and outspoken liberal Alec Baldwin explained the importance to consumers of entrepreneur Steve Jobs and added, "I think capitalism is worthwhile."


"I think capitalism is worthwhile. And capitalism demands the flow of money. So, I think we need to have that. ... I do not want capital markets dismantled."

Alec Baldwin, defender of capitalism. Miracles happen.
