A smart move by Alec?

From Wire Reports

A spokesman for Alec Baldwin says the actor has no plans to challenge Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman in 2012.

Baldwin told Playboy magazine that he was considering moving to Connecticut to run against Lieberman, saying he has “no use” for the independent senator.

On CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Lieberman said he had a message for Baldwin: “Make my day.”

But a Baldwin spokesman said Monday that the “30 Rock” star wants Lieberman to stay in office because there are so few moderate Republicans in the Senate.

Lieberman was re-elected in 2006 as an independent after he lost the Democratic primary.

He was the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2000 and spoke at last year’s Republican National Convention.
