Alec Baldwin To The Rescue..Yeah Right
(National Journal)- America’s favorite fictional mogul could be looking to move his office from 30 Rock to Capitol Hill, MSNBC reported today.
The network is quoting sources close to actor Alec Baldwin as saying the actor intends to challenge Randy Altschuler of New York for Congress in two years if the Republican candidate ends up winning the House seat currently occupied by Rep. Tim Bishop, D-N.Y. The Altschuler-Bishop race is one of a handful still deemed too close to call; the most recent count shows Bishop, a four-term incumbent, trailing by less than 400 votes.
Baldwin is no stranger to politics. He has been both criticized and acclaimed for his outspoken support of the Democratic Party (he donated $2,000 to Bishop’s campaign this year), and in an interview with CNN last year, revealed his interest in running for public office.
“The desire is there; that’s one component,” he said. “The other component is opportunity.”
Now the opportunity could materialize, if New York’s 1st Congressional District, which includes Baldwin’s Long Island home, turns Republican.

You know what I think, this is the same guy who called his own daughter a “Rude, thoughtless little pig” He should fit right in.
