The former Senator from Playgirl, having been turfed out by the voters of Massachusetts last year, is doubling down on the stupidity and looking to run against another wildly-popular female political figure — and is planning to move to another state to do it.

I know you were worried. Could these two ex-Senators find work, one a rookie, the other a veteran? Leaving the Senate nest is always precarious, whether it’s voluntary (as Joe Lieberman can claim, not having sought re-election) or not (as Scott Brown must attest, having lost to Elizabeth Warren).
Well, worry not. Both these esteemed gentlemen have found paying gigs with organizations in Washington that will probably make very good use of their service to their country.

This story in the Boston Herald perfectly demonstrates why it was so fortuitous for Democrats that Scott Brown decided not to run in the Massachusetts special election to replace John Kerry. According to the Herald some “heavyweight Republicans” are urging Tagg Romney to run.

It is possible that President Obama has handed Republicans a Senate seat by nominating Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) to be Secretary of State. If former Senator Scott Brown (R) decides to run in the special election he would start off with a large lead over the likely Democratic nominee Ed Markey, according to a new poll by MassINC.

With Senator John Kerry (D-MA) likely to soon become Secretary of the State that has created an opening in the Senate. One of the first prominent politicians to officially announce their desire to replace Kerry is Democratic House member Ed Markey.

Former Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry will become the next nominee for Secretary of State, replacing Hillary Clinton and creating another Senate vacancy.
President Obama will formally announce the nomination today at the White House, according to sources. He is not expected to face much resistance in the Senate for confirmation. Kerry will likely recuse himself from the confirmation hearings, since they would take place at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which he chairs. But there’s no word on when or if Kerry will step down from the Senate, the timing of which triggers a series of vacancy laws in Massachusetts.

Former Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry has been chosen to serve as Secretary of State, according to a Chicago Sun-Times columnist who heard it from an unidentified White House source.
This doesn’t exactly come from left field. Kerry, the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was rumored to be on the short list for the job, along with UN Ambassador Susan Rice. Rice took herself out of the running this week.

Never do I feel so powerless and deflated in my role as a citizen as I do toward the end of an election season, but 2012 is quickly reaching a new level of awfulness. I just can’t wait for this to be over. From the top of the ticket on down (except for a few bright spots I’ll get to later), the dispiriting sense that “winning” can only be called such because losing is flat-out unthinkable, given that almost half of the electorate is evidently willing and eager to elect into office a party that holds them in utter contempt.

Elizabeth Warren had what by all accounts was a solid debate performance last night, punctuated by a pivotal moment where Warren ripped aside the moderate mask Scott Brown has been trying to wear this whole campaign. He tried to come across as a staunch defender of women’s rights, but Warren would have none of it, highlighting Brown’s votes against equal pay and women’s health.
