[Worfless] Alec Baldwin interested in congressional run [LOLz alert]
CNN - Political Ticker ^ | 2009-07-06

Posted on 07/06/2009 5:53:10 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Emmy Award winner Alec Baldwin is eyeing 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."

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.

Baldwin should move to Minnesota. He would have an excellent chance of winning, and upgrading Minnesota’s Senate representation in the process.

If he were a Republican something like that would sink him...with the Dims, it’s an advantage...ask Minnesota’s newest senator.

Heck if Franken can steal and election it must be Alex’s turn. He’ll just call up anyone who won’t vote and threaten to kill them, stone them to death, call them dirty names.

He might have a shot if he moves to Minnesota.

Speaking of The Bloviator, is anyone able to find that show where he called for stoning Henry Hyde to death and murdering the wives and families of the Congressmen who voted to impeach Clinton?

Opportunist much there, Alec?

I watched “The Edge” on tv last week. I had never seen it before but it is a great movie. I say great because in the movie Alec Baldwin tries to shoot Anthony Hopkins but he keeps telling Hopkins to turn around and Hopkins refuses. Hopkins takes a step toward Baldwin and Baldwin steps backward and falls into a pit trap and a stake pierces his leg. Hopkins gets him out of the pit and puts him in a canoe and starts downstream and Baldwin dies a slow, agonizing death in the canoe before they get back to civilization. As I said, it is a GREAT movie!

I will be looking for a DVD now so that I can watch Baldwin die anytime I feel like it.

I think Mr. Franken and the Democrat party will regret the day he took office. Just my guess...

Which one of Obama’s 57 states is he going to run it? The State of Confusion; State of Stupidity; State of Treason; or the State of Drunkenness? Or all four?

Hey, why not ... the country apparently does not mind voting for these jokes.

National office is now just a big American Idol contest.

Don’t laugh too freakin’ loud people. Minnesota just sent that deranged idiot Al Franken to the Senate. If HE can get elected, Baldwin could too — especially in California.

Prayer: “Oh God, please, rapture me out or kill me dead before you let Alec Baldwin get elected to Congress!”

It just won’t matter in 10 years. Unless there is a resurgence of Judeo Christian principles back into our governing and judicial bodies of government, it’s over.

The Reagan Revolution had the people wanting these principles returned to our government. It is why he won.

Can it happen again in 2012? Looking at my own 5 children, their value system and work ethic I am sceptical.

In post #16 you sounded like someone who couldn’t find the video. That’s why I responded the way I did. Now I see you originally posted it.

I think I was misunderstood. I was looking for the clip of Baldwin’s psychotic rant on Conan O’Brien from a decade ago when he urged Henry Hyde and his family to be murdered. I couldn’t find it on YouTube.

Alec, just because you’re too fat, drunk, and stupid to be an actor anymore (Try to picture that!), doesn’t mean anybody will vote for you.
