I hope Tracy Morgan slaps some sense into him:
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.
For every Al Franken, there are a dozen embarrassing celebriticians. Democrats should leave the actor-turned-mediocre-politician schtick to Republicans like Fred Thompson and Arnold Schwarzenegger. It blows holes in conservative "Hollyweird" arguments as long as more actors are in the R column.
