Will Alec Baldwin Be New York City's Next Mayor?


Alec Baldwin: serious actor, comedy genius, cool new kid on the Twitter block — and New York’s next mayor? Based on an interview with a friend of Baldwin’s, The Daily is reporting that Anthony Weiner’s recent public embarrassment has convinced the star that he could be the Democrats’ candidate to succeed three-term mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2013. As The Daily points out, Baldwin has been talking about pursuing a political career for years and will be free from his 30 Rock obligations next year, which would give him ample time to launch a campaign. Hey, we’d vote for Jack Donaghy over a guy who doesn’t realize it’s a bad idea for lawmakers to flash their privates on the internet — but only if Liz Lemon is on board as Deputy Mayor.
