It doesn't exactly have the makings of a Sarah Palin-David Letterman smackdown, but it'll have to do.

Former Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman rallied back—albeit in an extremely unimpassioned way—against Alec Baldwin over the weekend, responding to comments the 30 Rock star made in Playboy magazine in which he stated he had "no use" for the Independent politico and may consider challenging his Connecticut senate seat.

"You know, make my day," Lieberman said on CNN's State of the Union, more or less proving why line reads should be left in the hands of professionals.

Dirty Harry he's not. A skilled backpeddler, on the other hand…

"I must say that I respect Alec Baldwin as an actor and as a comedian, and if he wants to run, that's his right."

Your move, Baldwin.
