[Alec] Baldwin 'interested' in political run
Politico ^ | 4 Jan 11 | Patrick Gavin

Posted on 01/05/2011 12:51:40 PM PST by seanmerc

So unfolds the latest chapter in Alec Baldwin’s ongoing flirtation with public office: The “30 Rock” actor told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer that he’s “very interested” in a political run.

Of course, Baldwin knows there are plenty of obstacles in his way: He loves acting and his current state of New York is flooded with established political players.

“It’s something that I’m very, very interested in,” said Baldwin in an interview set to air Wednesday night. He said what he wants to see from elected leaders is “people who have not lost sight about what the middle class in this country is.” And, despite his fame and success, he says that “whatever I’ve accrued in my career doing that, it hasn’t changed me as a person.”

Yep. Still and vacuous moron just like he was when he started. Born with no brain and he still has most of it.

Minnesota was dumb enough to elect Jesse Ventura, et al, so that no doubt gives him hope.

Yeah, you’re still a jackass and so it your family.

Alec Baldwin is a typical show business airhead. A multi-millionaire with a gigantic ego, surrounded by sycophants. He relates to the middle class about as well as England's Prince Charles. Baldwin, who is a nasty piece of work, probably has about the same tolerance for criticism as Barack Hussein Obama, i.e. none.

Then again, maybe Alec Baldwin is just right for New York. You know, the city that - 3 times - has elected the insufferable Michael (he of the $18-billion-dollar fortune) Bloomberg as mayor. By that standard, Baldwin should run for Mayor of New York City before going for a N.Y. senate seat (like carpetbagger Hillary Clinton), then, the White House. Yeah, that's the ticket!

” A multi-millionaire with a gigantic ego, surrounded by sycophants...”

He’s the closest thing you can get to a white trash from Massapequa Park, NY.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alec_Baldwin

During his appearance on the comedy late night show Late Night with Conan O’Brien on December 12, 1998, eight days before President Bill Clinton was to be impeached, Baldwin said, “if we were in another country... we would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families, for what they’re doing to this country.”

Just what the people need to represent them a guy who took 20 years to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater.

Calling your little girl a pig and a then threatening her with your own drug overdose to get even with her is just good middle class, er white trash, values. What a loser

A friend of mine went to high school with him.

Friend said he was an a__hole back then too.

The way he treated Kim Basinger, he might try to introduce Sharia law to the state.

I’ve learned to separate Mr. Baldwin from his misguided political ideology and arrived at the conclusion that he’s a great guy, actor and person. He may be a political buffoon - but a guy I’d enjoy a few drinks with.

As soon as you’re elected it will be OK to drag you and your family out in the street and stone you to death. Right, Alec?

I knew Alec in 1982. He was always talking politics so this is no surprise. I’m not sure he loves acting that much, I think it was something that crossed his path and he took advantage of the opportunity. As for not understanding the middle class, his memory has to be good enough to remember where he came from, fairly humble. He is quite well off now, that’s true.

He was a better Jack Ryan than Harrison “i’m finally showing my age” Ford...

Personally, I am not going to vote for a guy who threw away a chance to be the next action hero star—Jack Ryan for four movies—so he can do a play that only rich people will see..dah....

Does somebody have that tape where he tells his daughter that she’s a fat cow?
