Dose Exclusive:Stephen Baldwin and His ******* Buddy at CPAC

Update: At CPAC 2010, McCullough and I buried the hatchet (to his credit, he approached me), so I hereby retract “dickbag.”

Stephen Baldwin, star of the Best Movie Evah, was here signing books, so I thought I’d ask him about Steele’s attack on civil unions.  You know, like I’ve asked everyone else here.  His dickbag buddy, who Captain Ed tells me is Kevin McCullough, starts acting like he thinks he’s Prince’s bodyguard or something.  Look, I like Baldwin, but even if I tried and succeeded at getting him to say something crazy, it ain’t exactly gonna land me a job at Variety.

Baldwin was at least trying to be funny.  Too bad his SWF shut me down, because I really was curious about his position on civil unions.  A lot of Christians are in favor of them, especially as a way to head off gay marriage.

I’ve always liked Baldwin.  I don’t automatically make fun of someone just because they’re a celebrity, or a Christian, or even a little goofy.  He was quirky and funny on the reality show “The Mole,” and hell if I can’t relate to fucking your whole life up with “the urges,” and looking for some kind of salvation.  Plus, again, he’s in the Best Movie Evah!

  1. DUDE, I THINK YOU WERE SO WRONG TO MISREPRESENT YOURSELF, AND I COMMEND STEPHEN FOR HANDLING THIS LIKE A GENTLEMAN.
    JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE IS A CELEBRITY? REMEMBER THEY ARE A PERSON FIRST !
    TRY SHOWING A LITTLE RESPECT AND DON’T SHOVE YOUR CAMERA IN THEIR FACE WITHOUT ASKING PERMISSION. WHERE DO YOU GET OFF? YOU HAVE NO CLASS, NO MANNERS AND YOUR LUCKY IT WAS STEPHEN CUZ ANYONE ELSE WOULD’VE PROBABLY PUNCHED YOU IN THE FACE, AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF, YOU LIED AND SAID YOU WORK FOR AOL? GIVE ME A BREAK, I KINDA WISHED HE WOULD’VE BROKE
    YOUR CAMERA, NOW THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN FUNNY. I KNOW IT’S NOT CHRISTIAN LIKE BUT SOMETIMES PEOPLE LIKE YOU NEED TO BE PUT IN THEIR PLACE
    HONESTLY? I THINK YOU OWE HIM AN APOLOGY.
    SINCERELY,
    KAREN M SILIN

  2. Interesting approach Tommy. To be honest, you’re lucky that Kevin allowed you that close to the table after he had everyone else held off. (Not that I’ve seen him punch anyone out, but I have heard rumours!)

    Crossing the lines can be fun when it’s a cute actress and your going for the cheap shot that can be sold to a sleazy tabloid…

    But a paparazzi (sp?) going for meaty news gets both cameras and noses broken!

    I like the upfront reporting though, so keep it up.

  3. PS: I FORGOT TO SAY THIS…

    YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT REAL CHRISTIANS THINK ABOUT GAY
    MARRIAGE OR UNIONS? READ YOUR BIBLE, THE ANSWER IS IN THERE !
    READ Leviticus 18:22

  4. Come on dude! Get some class. If I came up to you on the street or anywhere for that matter and started asking you why Al Gore is a big fan of Hitler, you would probably act the same way. Stop playing gotcha and do some real blogging. You are making us bloggers look real classless!

  5. You are never going to convince people to agree with your stance on issues by being pushy and rude.

    Very unprofessional.

  6. […] this from yesterday?  Yeah, the one where I stuck up for Kevin’s buddy.  Well, this dickbag is such a dickbag […]

  7. Read my new post. He’s a liar.

  8. Tommy, not sure what gives you the right to approach people impersonating the media (you know if you did that as a cop, you’d be arrested), but if you’re that star struck and want to talk with Stephen personally, then maybe you should just wait in line like everybody else…Or maybe you could come at him like a crazy, star struck fan…that might get you even further than you got with him. At least then, you could have a picture with him! Sounds to me like you just might be that star struck with him since you keep referencing him in the “best movie evah.” I’m just as star struck as the next person, but seriously, c’mon, I’m not about to make myself look like a fool to get some obviously needed attention.

  9. Stephen seems to be a nice guy but is letting his friend and business partner ruin his reputation. Stephen is nice and funny with the media. Did you see the way he offered a hand shake? Kevin is rude and treats most people like they are beneath him. Stephen should get smart quick and stop his association with such a rude small sited man. Running with the celebs has really inflated Kevin’s ego. Or maybe he is hoping his bad attitude will land him some more air time with the big guys. Stephen, I plead with you Bra to remember your roots, keep us laughing but don’t turn ugly like your friend. Get rid of him before it’s too late. Go back to being a Christian and not a political hater.

  10. Lisa, I think you’re absolutely right. I had no idea why the dude was even talking to me, but graciously tolerated his interruption, and this is how he thanks me! By trashing me and leaving comments on my blog under the name “Star Struck.”

  11. Stephen acted like a Christian should…..unlike a pushy clueless person like yourself.

  12. Ha! I write something nice about the guy, and you slam me for it. Makes a lot of sense. Kevin’s a liar.

  13. Tommy…

    Genius… the book signing peeps didn’t handle our media schedule. You weren’t on the media schedule. And you did not post the video you shot of us on AOL until after you caused the kerfuffle.

    You sir – walked up with camera rolling – trying to get Stephen to say something you could use and generate a little traffic with. Very douchebag like (that was Stephen’s assessment not mine by the way.)

    You wanna keep up this little urination match of yours go ahead.

    But at least tell the truth. You never asked permission to talk to us. You were behind the rope line without our consent. And your camera was rolling…

    Tell the truth…

  14. UPDATE: Tommy Christopher lies on top of other lies he’s already told hoping that there will be so many lies no one can catch them all…

    So here’s the truth about the last round of lies Tommy Christopher–liar lives to tell:

    Tommy’s claim: “There was no one waiting for Stephen and I”
    TRUTH: There were runners for the Washington Times (a lovely young lady in a green dress), Pajamas Media (Roger Simon), and for HotAir as well as NRA News (David Nammo) — waiting for us to wrap the book signing and to escort us to the next stops for the afternoon.

    Tommy’s claim: “Stephen’s ‘d*ckbag buddy’ mad (Stephen) nervous, and so (Stephen) didn’t want to comment any further.”
    TRUTH: Creep unkempt Tommy Christopher made Stephen highly suspicious of him since he was running tape BEFORE asking permission to speak to us. Stephen and I were there together to promote our radio show – now on in 164 markets. Christopher wished to score a cheap piece of tape to make Stephen look dumb. He wished to do so by catching him off guard and then publishing it without Stephen’s permission. Since Stephen and I own the media company together — I had every right to set the agenda for the afternoon. Tommy Christopher never asked permission, acted like a total tool while there, and was mad at me because I put an end to his fishin expedition.

    Tommy’s claim: “Kevin asserts Tommy is a homo”
    TRUTH: I said he looked unkempt (like a creepy uncle). And I asked two questions in the above post that postulated why he was asking those at CPAC about such an obscure quote by Steele. Usually those who walk around wanting to know everyone else’s thoughts on homosexuality do so for other reasons than just pure intellectual curiousity. If asking the guy a question about his motivation asserts anything… I’m at a loss as to explain how. One thing definitely asserts such however… RESPONDING to the question.

    Tommy’s OH SO ORIGINAL claim: “Kevin’s a homo bc he said homo”
    TRUTH: Tommy’s an angry boy, who knows very little about manners and even less about journalism. Listeners to our show know well the love and affection I have for my Lovely Bride. It’s intellectually lazy to accuse someone of being a repressed homosexual. But intellectually lazy describes Tommy Christopher pretty well. He’s had some fun at my expense bc I asked him who he was and what he wanted to talk to Stephen and I about. (It was a joint appearance and Stephen wasn’t doing one on one interviews… neither was I… we were promoting our show.)

    Tommy Christopher has been proven false on four claims in his most recent update to this story. He uses language that is profane and vulgar because he lacks either the imagination or the vocabulary to make his point with it. He’s angry… he’s ticked… and he’s rude.

  15. Both Stephen and Kevin seemed fairly professional and accomodating considering your breach of protocol and courtesy. Why such hostility?

    It seems like you tried to play them and they called your bluff, so you’re upset. Is that the reason for all of this?

  16. Tommy lied by telling us he was with AOL
    AOL NEWS did not send Tommy.

    The video he produced got cross-posted at both sites but with CG on the screen that indicates it was the property of Daily Dose. (And since no one has heard of that – he tells Stephen and I that he’s with AOL.)

    Bait and switch to gain access.

    And Tommy – here’s a clue…

    Stephen does not make public statements on the issue of civil unions, gay “rights”, or redefining marriage to include homosexual unions.

    He had told me just that morning…

  17. The “event staff” what “event staff” there were no such people. Speaking to some college or high school intern doesn’t quite constitute permission from “event staff.”

    I presumed bad faith, because you were rolling tape and did not do what established media would do – if they were of no ill intent… ask permission ahead of time.

    We had waved off several other “impromptus” that had asked already. But you came right in…

    And then – because I only did what Stephen had asked me to do that morning… You louse up your page describing me one way and not being honest about how you presented yourself, nor telling us anything about what you wanted to talk to us about.

    And btw… Tommy… Stephen wasn’t there doing media for his ministry or book or anything else as a solo act that day. He does sometimes… So do I… but we had 24 hours to do several dozen media requests, you were never cleared, you never asked, and you creeped Stephen out. Do you know how many times TMZ has just flat out lied to him and walked up with tape rolling? Any idea?

    Do you care?

    No – because for you it’s all about making your name and getting the get.

    BTW… I noticed you didn’t do the same to Coulter. (The only other “celebrity” on the floor that afternoon.) Why not?

    Because her security staff would’ve shoved the camera up one nostril and beaten you until it popped out the other.

    By comparison you got very favorable treatment from us.

    Until you start calling people scrotums.

    Bait and switch to gain access.

    And Tommy – here’s a clue…

    Stephen does not make public statements on the issue of civil unions, gay “rights”, or redefining marriage to include homosexual unions.

    He has personal reasons for holding this position.

    Respect the man, respect his place, respect the boundaries, and respect the man the man works for.

    If you would have… you would have gotten an interview.

    Heck – if you’ll just apologize you could have it next time.

    Never too late to do the right thing!

  18. “I had no idea why the dude was even talking to me, but graciously tolerated his interruption,”-Tommy Christopher response to post by LisaStover

    Mr. Christopher? Really? Are you aware of how arrogant that statement alone sounds? If you broke protocol and showed up looking “creepy” and disheveled rolling tape right in someone’s face, then what do you expect? Did you perhaps wish to be invited back to their place for tea and crumpets?

    I will concede that Mr. Baldwin did “seem” more polite than Mr. McCullough but that is probably because you were rolling your camera right in his face. Does “image” ring any bells? If Kevin and Stephen had an agreement about such interruptions prior, then Kevin was certainly within his role and position to step up and play the heavy. Goodness knows that yes, Christians must do so once in awhile!

    Too bad you didn’t try this one with Ann Coulter! That would have been fun to watch. Does it make me any less Christian to savor the art of standing up to a bully?

    Anyway I have spent enough time writing a comment to someone who will turn a deaf ear.

    Good day to you,

    Jennifer

  19. From what I saw they both seemed perfectly nice and I am not sure what your problem with them is.

  20. Jennifer,
    thanks for reading. Maybe I didn’t make it clear enough. I wasn’t interrupting anything. I went back when they were done, as I had been instructed to do. I can’t vouch for Kevin’s description of my appearance, but considering the inaccuracy of the rest of it, well, I’d take that with a grain of salt. You can see for yourself at HotAir.com, I was on Captain Ed’s show later that day.

    Despite what McCullough says, there’s nothing unusual about “rolling tape” when approaching a public figure. The camera won’t steal their souls.

    I hadn’t heard of McCullough prior to this, but I suspect he’s this paranoid because he likes to drop inflammatory garbage, a la Rush, but is afraid to talk to anyone he doesn’t already know agrees with him.

    I agree with Lisa, Stephen ought to get a new boss.

  21. Douche Bag #1 – Tommy

  22. Hey congratulations on all the attention you’re getting. I think it’s ironic that you told Kevin “You’re welcome” for getting people to post on HIS blog. LOL He didn’t need any help there. It’d be cool if you just said “Sorry for not waiting in line like everyone else” so that you could possibly get an actual interview with Stephen and Kevin. Why don’t you check out their show at bmxradionow.com some Saturday night 9-11 (Eastern time) and call in with your opinion. We’d love to hear from you! 🙂

  23. Michele, Kevin has chosen to run a factually inaccurate story. You should ask him why.

  24. I’m sure that would be a waste of time, as he feels his story IS accurate. And since I wasn’t there I couldn’t verify it either way. But hey, for real, come listen to the show on Saturday night, maybe they’ll even be talking about you. 😉

  25. Hey asshole…star struck is not Kevin. I do find it humorous that you automatically thought it was him though…seriously, again with the needing attention.
