Dukakis: Tanks but no tanks

I got my hopes up yesterday about Michael Dukakis becoming a senator. To replace Kerry! Two of the biggest punchlines in politics, in one wonderful story? It seemed too good to be true, because it was.

WBZ-TV:

Former Gov. Michael Dukakis says he will not be a candidate for appointment as interim senator should Sen. John Kerry resign to accept appointment as Secretary of State.

In a brief State House interview Monday, Dukakis told WBZ-TV: ā€œIā€™m headed for the West to teach,ā€ alluding to his annual spring-semester teaching duties at UCLA.

Well, darn. I was looking forward to laughing about this some more:

They can’t take that away from us. Tanks for the memories, Mike.
