Alec Baldwin Mulling Congressional Run

By Wyatt Earp | July 8, 2009

Alec Baldwin angry

This is a great idea, because there aren’t enough arrogant, ignorant douchebags in Washington, D.C. already.

WASHINGTON – Emmy Award winner Alec Baldwin is eying a post-acting career that could take him off a Hollywood soundstage into the halls of Congress.

Baldwin, who currently stars in the NBC comedy “30 Rock,” told Playboy magazine that he is seriously considering running for Congress. But he acknowledged his opponents would have plenty of fodder to use against him.

“I’ll put it this way,” he told the magazine. “The desire is there; that’s one component. The other component is opportunity.”

So, every filthy rich, out-of-touch Hollywood actor thinks they can run for office now? Didn’t we learn anything from the Arnold Schwarzenegger fiasco?

A native New Yorker, Baldwin said he has been approached by an unnamed Democratic law firm who wanted him to run for governor of Ohio, and he has also considered moving to New Jersey or Connecticut to run for office. “I’d love to run against Joe Lieberman,” Baldwin said of the Independent Democratic senator who is no favorite of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. But Baldwin dismissed the idea, saying “It’s all fantasy.” (H/TCNN)

No, the real fantasy is that this pompous ass thinks he can run for Congress and do a decent job for the people of the United States of America. Do us all a favor, Alec, and don’t quit your day job.

Whatever that is.

    Gawd, I hope he never sets foot in Ohio! I may have to move back to PA!

    Can he wait and run against Stewart Smalley when he runs for re-election? At least it would be entertaining.

    Umm…how ’bout him moving to Minnesota and running against Al Franken!

    I would even buy popcorn to watch that one.

    Best regards,

    GroovyVic – No, thanks. We don’t take deserters here. :)

    Doghouse – But whom to cheer for?

    Gail S. – A battle of wills between two morons. Yeah, that would be entertaining.

    I’d like to know who this law firm is so I can publicize this bit of information.

    It doesn’t matter what I’ve said.

    The liberal media is licking my a$$ and victory is MINE!

    Oh sweet Jesus….

    I consider myself a liberal on a lot of issues, conservative on others, and ‘independent’ on yet other issues.

    That said, given the choice between ‘punching’ Alec Baldwin or Adolf Hitler, I’d probably punch myself between the eyes in hope of ending the agony.

    Shit, look up ‘useless douche’ in the dictionary and you’ll see a Baldwin brother as an illustration.

    I’d say that Baldwin has all the class of a “Port-a-potty” but that would be doing a disservice to the port-a-potty. What a pompous windbag! The one thing Washington DOES NOT need.

    Do we think he could do that much worse than what is in office right now??? He is an idiot, but at least if people vote for him they know he is an idiot beforehand.

    Randal – And that is a scary comment on our current political system.

    Jen06 – I thought law firms were supposed to at least give the impression of neutrality.

    Maggie Mama – It worked for Obama.

    Glocksman – There is probably a photo of the entire family.

    MeToo – Exactly. There are more than enough of them there already.

    Deanna – Just like they did for Al Franken, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy . . .
