Barney Frank: I want to be named interim senator to fill Kerry seat
Boston Herald ^ | January 4, 2013 | Matt Stout

Posted on 01/04/2013 6:20:52 AM PST by Zakeet

Just one day removed from the House, Barney Frank says he wants to get back to Washington.

Frank, speaking today on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” said he told Gov. Deval Patrick he wants to be interim senator when Sen. John Kerry is named secretary of state.

“A month ago, or a few weeks ago, I said I wasn’t interested,” Frank said, according to a transcript of his appearance on Politico.com. “It was kind of like you’re about to graduate, and they said: ‘You gotta go to summer school.’ But (the fiscal cliff deal) now means that February, March and April are going to be among the most important months in American financial history.”

Frank added: “I’ve told the governor I would now like, frankly, to do that (serve as interim senator).”

If you hear Barney Frank wants to fill your seat, it’s time to back away slowly....

to fill Kerry seat

I just threw up a little bit in my mouth...

Then when I thought of Barney with governmental power again I ruined my keyboard.

(PS Bawney, you aren't rich enough for Kerry to be interested in you.)

Well....as was posted a couple of days ago by an astute Freeper:

..THE CLOSER TO THE DRAIN, THE FASTER THE TURDS SWIRL...

...Barney had to know that Horseface's nomination was in the works or he wouldn't have left the House.

These mealy mouthed bastards are so untalented and uneducated that they cannot make it on the "outside"....so they scheme and use weasel tactics and scumbag "friends" to get back on the gravy train.....

.....the "finish" for them just may come at the end of a rope....

OMG! Haven’t we had enough of this rump ranger? The damage he did in the house would be nothing compared to what he could do in the senate. Of course it is the bastion of liberty, Mass, we are talking about. Well known for electing and re-electing killers and drug addicts in to office. Maybe he and kathy griffith could hook up. I guess her attempt at converting andy cooper didn’t work out so well on NYE. Gross would be an understatement.

Call your senators and congress critters and demand they oppose difi’s latest attempt to overturn the Bill of Rights.

Share the lead.

He likes the title ‘interim’. It sounds like “enter him”.

As skewed as this country’s electorate has gone, Frank could run for president and have a 50/50 shot at winning.

I would not be surprised to find this all was staged in order to put Frank into the Senate, making it easier for him to win the special election.

Besides, Frank is going to use the Hagel nomination to rally sympathy to the homosexual cause, increasing his chances of winning that special election even further!

Mr. Frank, I don’t think you’d have to be a senator in order to “fill John Kerry’s seat.” And when you are done, perhaps he can “fill your seat.”

Exchanging the ‘human toothache’ (Kerry) for the ‘human ass-ache’ (Frank) Yea, it makes one long for the days of Governor Foster Furcolo; I've just heard the name, don't recall anything about him except for a catchy name. People in MA are nearly always WRONG! Sorry, John Adams, but your old stomping ground is a real embarrassment.

The little brown ring around his mouth suggests he may have just had a snack at the local boy scouts club. Aids dementia is a terrible thing, but necessary to cull the degenerates.
