BOSTON (AP) -- John Kerry says he is planning to run for a sixth term in the U.S. Senate and has begun fundraising for his 2014 campaign.

When asked, Kerry told reporters in Boston on Thursday, "this is the job I want. This is the job I'm enjoying doing."

That's actually not ‘news’.

News would be him NOT running for reelection.

;-)

Is he going to run on his war record?

The empty suit is running again. If they re-elect him, they deserve him.

Senator for life. He can’t spend all his time on the yacht or with Teresa. Such a noble aristocrat who loves giving back to the little people.

In Mass., he runs on his Irish heritage; war record is for national races.

John Kerry.

Ya gotta just give pause to reflect on what his presidencey would have been like.

Somewhat laughably, with respect to Obama’s Press Guys, would Kerry have to have had a Press Sec from the Blue Man group?

“fundraising”? The richest man in the Senate and he is asking broke Americans to fund his campaign? There just something wrong about this. But then again, there is something wrong with Kerry. He never had a decent job in his life. He even screwed up his Navy record.

Please, he doesn’t need to raise money, the Massholes will re-elect him even if he had a gay prostitution ring running in his DC home. Isn’t that right, Bawney Fwank?

What a treat. He’s decided to use the Senate as his retirement home.

BUT...there's always a BUT....

Kerry will run, and be re-elected. The GOP will also take over the Senate...easily. If, if..Obama wins, as Hillary has said she's only serving as SecState for one term, Kerry will resign (no fun being in the minority) and become Obama's SecState..this will allow him to travel the world...pontificating...blathering...it's his lifelong dream.

Further..and here it gets interesting..that will allow Patrick to appoint the replacement for Kerry. Could it be Warren, or more likely, as one Mass rep will lose his CD because of redistricting....there may be a deal in the works...or could Patrick even decide to appt himself....hey it's Massachussets after all..

Except that we ALL get stuck with him. It's not a local outcome.

Why do these pricks think they are the only people qualified in a state of several million people to serve their constituents? What is tells you is that they are getting rich from their “service.” Term limits are our only hope to rid us of the career politician. Neither party will fund a race against an incumbent.

Didn’t he finally admit that He is at least half Jewish? Mass could care less if he’s Irish, as long as he stays a dependable Lib.

“Lovey” a.k.a. Mrs. Heinz-Kerry will throw him out quicker than flies on sh*t if he wasn’t a senator.

He’d have to go back to living in his car, like he did before he met “Lovey”.

>> What a treat. He’s decided to use the Senate as his retirement home. <<

He's got plenty of company. John Kerry is practically a spring chicken by Senate standards, since he's still under 70. Senator Lautenberg is more than old enough to be his daddy. Given the number of Senators past retirement age, they ought to start having bingo nights and serve prune juice to the Senators.

::shudders:: The scary thing is when you look at the two Hawaiian Senators, the one elected in 1990 is retiring because he feels “too old” to continue a full-time job, but the one elected in 1959 has already announced he’s running for re-election in 2016!! Hawaii should just keep up the ancient geezer tradition and replace Akaka with a new freshman Senator born in 1924.

Do they have a full time nursing staff? A tv in the cloakroom just for Matlock?

Jerry Stiller should run for the Senate and dress like his Seinfeld character.

Actually, no. IIRC, the Howells were both rich.
