The folks at Fight Back NY are out with another web video rallying people for gay marriage and against the state Senate Republicans, this one riffing off of Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s earlier video.
In that one, Ferguson laments that he can’t marry Alec Baldwin because same-sex marriage is illegal and because, well, Baldwin is straight. In this one, Baldwin answers, and takes aim at those obstinate Republican senators as well.
One interesting political side note here is that Baldwin has long been rumored to be interested in political office.
This “60 Minutes” profile notes that, “liberal politics has always been his passion. He grew up in a working class family on Long Island, N.Y. He has an impressive grasp of the issues, and spends a huge amount of his time and money supporting causes he believes in, like animal rights, the environment, and the arts. ”
Earlier this year, he spoke at the Kennedy School for Government and mentioned that he could look into a run down the road, and the Working Families Party was rumored to be looking for him to run on their line this year, before Andrew Cuomo accepted the line.
