Alec Baldwin, Anti-Elitist


He may spend weekends in the Hamptons and make more money for a single episode of 30 Rock than most Americans earn in a year, but in a discussion with Eliot Spitzer about the actor’s ongoing political aspirations, Alec Baldwin, as Spitzer notes, sounds like Sarah Palin when he talks about the political elites. “I don’t want to say this in an anti-elitist way,” Baldwin said, before saying something very anti-elitist, “but we’ve had men who are Ivy League–groomed running this country since 1988. We’ve had 22 years of Yale and Harvard running this country right now, and the problems aren’t getting solved.” So is this going to be his argument? Ditch the elitists, get with the multimillionaire Hollywood celebrity?
