Acclaimed actor and
longtime political activist Words with Friends enthusiast Alec Baldwin is dropping out of the race for Mayor of New York City.
In a recent appearance on WNYC’s podcast Here’s The Thing, Baldwin explained why:
“The people that are running for mayor – I look at them, and I don’t see myself in that crowd. They’re like a guy on a date that you can tell he just can’t wait to get his hand up your blouse before even the lights go out in the theatre.”
Apart from suggesting that Baldwin likes a fella to take his time, his opinions of the political machine make us grateful that he’s not comfortable among its players:
“They’re all just so horny for it. Horny for their own ascension.”
Besides, the 30 Rock star knows that even with flight attendants effing with his gaming, he’s already got a pretty cushy set-up:
“Give this up for what? I give up money and fame and position and success, I give up this wonderful life I have now in exchange for the chance to really change things. Yeah, I’m not quite sure you can anymore,” he concluded.
We hear ya, Alec.
