Watch out, Mitch McConnell. Given the chance to stick anyone in a dunk tank, Alec Baldwin named the Republican senator from Kentucky as his ideal victim.

The answer comes from a Reddit AMA he did yesterday to promote his podcast "Here's The Thing."

"If I could put anyone in a dunk tank... probably Mitch McConnell," the actor wrote. "I'm really feeling like Mitch needs to go in the dunk tank right now. For a good six months to a year. It would be to fight the Keystone pipeline, where else?!?"

The Senate Majority Leader is one of the main advocates for the Keystone XL pipeline, a controversial project linking Canada’s oil sands to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Baldwin joked that he'd keep the dunk tank affordable for the working class.

"I wouldn't charge much," he wrote. "Because I want everyone to experience the joy of flinging Mitch McConnell into the dunk tank. That isn't something to be reserved for the wealthy."

Baldwin, who's flirted with the idea of running for office, named Obama as a dream guest on his podcast and named Jesus, Bob Dylan and Pablo Escobar as the three people he'd invite to dinner.
