What should Alec Baldwin's campaign slogan be if he runs for mayor of New York?

The Anthony Weiner scandal has poked its head into the pop-culture conversation, and if it ultimately costs the congressman his ambitions to run for mayor of New York City, it may open the door for an actor to throw his hat in the ring. The Daily cites sources close to Alec Baldwin hinting that the 30 Rock star is contemplating running for mayor in 2013. His rep, Matthew Hiltzik, fueled the rumors, telling EW only, “I wouldn’t rule it out.”

Baldwin has long expressed a fascination with politics, recently telling CNN’s Eliot Spitzer that running for office is “something that I’m very, very interested in.” Baldwin’s contract with 30 Rock expires at the end of next season, so it’s possible that the timing could be right for him to take the plunge. He certainly wouldn’t be the first actor to do so: Reagan, Arnold, Congressman “Gopher.”

Though an official decision is still far far away, potential rivals should take heed. Baldwin has name recognition that blows them all of the water. He’s a well-known Yankee fan. And have you seen his hair? Mitt Romney himself wishes he had that mane! He can build an entire campaign around it.

Baldwin told Spitzer in January that he’d been approached from time to time to run for office, so this might be his opportunity. I’d like to encourage him by suggesting some campaign slogans that would inspire the populace while reminding them of his work on the screen. Vote below for the best “Baldwin 2013″ campaign slogan.

    The only thing I can say about this is that Alec Baldwin does possess the one quality all mayors of New York City must have in order to be any good whatsoever: He is slightly insane. Bloomberg’s as close to sane as an effective mayor of NYC has ever been, and even he has that dash of megalomania that helps him out. If you look at it, every sane mayor of the city has failed miserably. The great mayors of New York have all been weirdoes. It’s a spectacular, bizarre place. It needs bizarre leadership.

    His slogan…I’m an idiot and I have no chance in hell of winning, but grateful I still have a job to go to on 30 Rock. What a putz!!

    anything from his recorded call to his daughter…”you little pig”

    “Alec Baldwin 2013: I’ll keep it in my pants … maybe.”

  • Little Pig

    How about: “I promised I would leave the country if George W. Bush was elected to a second term and I didn’t so like all politicians, I’m good at breaking promises.”

    An actor wanting to run for political office. Been done to death.

  • pie thrower

    How about his sentiments for his daughter?


  • ME

    “Baldwin/Fey, All the Way!”

    Thus we would have to recruit Tina Fey into running for a (non-existent) position.

  • SavageNation

    DOA out of the gate: “if we were in another country … we would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families, for what they’re doing to this country.”

    Will Alec run? Ask yourself these questions:
    #1. Does he like to be told what to do or how to play the game? (no)

    #2. Have we heard all the dirty laundry from ex-wife Kim Basigner and problems with daughter Ireland? (doubtful- remember the leaked phone call with his daugher?)

    #3. Is he getting paid big bucks to do something that everyone likes and has little responsiblity? ( yes- he’s hit his acting stride).

    He’s not between a “Rock” and a hard place. But it is fun to hear him throw out the notion of a run.
