(Newser) – If you saw Alec Baldwin's courtly interaction with Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live and you're wondering what's gotten into the well-known liberal firebrand, he's wondering something, too: What's your problem? "What did some of you people actually think would happen?" he writes in a post that went up on Huffington Post today.

"Palin came on to be a good sport. And she was," writes Baldwin, who appeared briefly in the opening skit, telling Palin she was "way hotter in person" and sashaying off-camera with the Alaska governor on his arm. "She was polite, gracious. (More so than some of the famous actors who come through there, believe me.)."
