Duh Aficionado Magazine: Alec Baldwin Probably Not Running For Mayor Of New York City

The Daily, Rupert Murdoch’s ipad newspaper, aka The Eat The Rich Times, has an EXPLOSIVE iCover story today about Alec Baldwin running for mayor of New York City. Whoa! Can you imagine? Well keep imagining! Because it almost definitely isn’t going to happen. Look at how the article begins:

Alec Baldwin is mulling a run for mayor of New York City now that kinky Congressman Anthony Weiner appears to have sexted himself out of the 2013 race.

The “30 Rock” star, who has long talked about running for political office, believes Weinergate has shaken up the field of candidates enough that he might have a chance to win, a friend of the actor told The Daily.

“Alec said, ‘Hey, maybe this changes the race. The dynamics have shifted,’ ” said Baldwin’s pal.

Oh wait. So, Alec Baldwin’s friend recounted an off-hand conversation that he and Alec Baldwin had over a couple of 500 year old scotchs in the leather-walled confines of an exclusive gentlemen’s club and now all of a sudden the mayoral race has a front-runner? He didn’t even say, “maybe I should run for mayor,” he just said, “the dynamics have shifted.” Easy, ladies. Besides, just because he almost certainly is not actually running for mayor of New York doesn’t mean he can’t still be mayor of your vagina! (Gross. Sorry. Mayor McSorry! The Hambsorryglar. Wait, what? Paul Revere!)
