It’s hard to believe it’s been over ten years since I established PETAB, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Alec Baldwin — and the cheap website still somehow remains. Maybe that’s a sign. PETAB was established, if memory serves, in the late 1990’s as a way of saying, “Hey Alec, thanks for the laughs” — and not in the SNL kind of way.

The part of me that prays to be provided with daily writing subject manna from heaven still doesn’t believe Alec Baldwin will actually run for office — that would just be too good to be true — but hope does spring eternal:

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 he 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.

If Baldwin’s ever be elected, the first question that comes to mind about the liberal actor who once “joked” about stoning Henry Hyde and his family to death and who called Dick Cheney a terrorist is this: How long it will take for Alec to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize?
