A bad alignment can cause the car to pull but not normally shake the steering wheel. The problem sounds more like you may have a bad tire. If one of the tires has a shifted belt it will cause a pull and the shaking you are describing. I would suggest you get the car in ASAP to a trusted tire shop and have them inspect all four tires to be sure you do not have a shifted belt or thread separation in one of them. This needs to be addressed as soon as you can because it that is the case you could end up having a blow out.
