Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006


Another Senate Prospect Declines to Run

Ok, this time it's not at all surprising, but it is extremely amusing.

James Lileks' Backfence column today notes:

Well, I'm not running for Senate, either. Not that anyone asked. But I want to get that out of the way, since everyone seems to be grabbing a few minutes of spotlight time by lifting their hems and showing a flash of political ankle. It's not that I wouldn't be a great senator. I would. I have more qualifications than Al Franken, inasmuch as I -- what's the phrase I'm looking for? Right: I live in the state I'd like to represent. And unlike Jesse the V, who's also made senatorial rumblings, I am not apt to show up on the Senate floor looking like I based my facial hair on "Pirates of the Caribbean." But I do not want to be a senator. Ever.
