Alec Baldwin is the latest actor hoping to leave Hollywood behind and run for political office. Nope, I'm not joking.
He wants to go into office because he “deeply cares about the middle class” and thinks many politicians are failing to deal with the problems the country faces. True that!
He said: “Yes, it’s something I’m very interested in. I do believe that people want to believe that someone who deeply cares about the middle class ... would like to seek public office.
“We’ve had men who are Ivy League-groomed running this country since 1988. We’ve had men, regardless of their background, 22 years of Yale and Harvard and the problems aren’t getting solved.”
But don't expect him to just get up and quit 30 Rock tomorrow. He admits the transition will be hard because he loves his job now too.
He added in an interview on CNN: “People would say to me all the time, ‘Why would you want to run for office?’ And sometimes I don’t want to do it, because to leave what I’m doing now would be extremely painful because I like what I’m doing now.
To quit now where it feels good would be enormously difficult.”
You can't have your cake and eat it too buddy. Would you take Alec seriously as a politician? Or should he just stick to his day job?
