There are plenty of people getting on Alec Baldwin's case about his angry voice message to his 11-year-old daughter. Stories are now appearing about other displays of anger which have caused people to avoid Baldwin. He is rapidly becoming a pariah.

But we've seen all this before. Back during Clinton's impeachment, this same man said hysterical and violent things about Rep. Henry Hyde of Illinois, then Chairman of the Judiciary Committee and one of the House Managers in Clinton's trial in the Senate. And he said them on national TV, on somebody's talk show. It was obvious then that he had what we now call "anger management issues." But nobody said anything -- largely because many of the same people who are now pillorying him for chewing out his daughter also hated Henry Hyde.
