It’s been a dream of mine since those days nine or ten years ago when I put together the informal “People for the Ethical Treatment of Alec Baldwin” organization (I can’t believe it’s still online).

The guy’s a talent as an actor and a lunatic politically, which is a great combination if you write about politics on a daily basis and fear running out of topics.

I’ll give Alec credit for one thing: As he says in the interview with Client-9 below, we’ve had well over 20 years of Yale and Harvard running the country — maybe it’s long past time to give Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute alum a crack at it. But don’t take my word for it, because I’m biased and hold a grudge. I still think the jerk owes an apology to Henry Hyde’s family:

    "over 20 years of Yale and Harvard" … does he think the 40 other prior presidents graduated from Rocco Globbo School for Women ?

    Is his campaign slogan going to be "you all are a bunch of filthy little pigs"? Ask his daughter – she seems to have been on the other end of his many tirades.

    I… was going to post the audio link but then I listened to a few seconds to make sure I had the right one, and then it dawned on me. He was acting 'then' too!

    The pauses, the emphasis, inflection. Every -bit- of it as fake as the man himself. It sounds authentic enough on your AM radio stuck in traffic but this alone disqualifies him as dog catcher.

    Thanks for taking one for the team, Big Guy ! Your analysis is correct !

    I thought he was going to move out of the US if GWB was elected, I was ready to help him pack and give him a good swift boot to the butt to see him off !

    Looks like really fun times on the Baldwin (and X) family home front !!

    Is his daughter an actress ?

    Notice how Elliot (think E.T.) Sputzer immediately dismisses Palin's creds but naturally Baldwin is qualified? The MSM is such a joke.
