Top 10 Unlikely Senate Appointees

Governor Deval Patrick is holding a 3:00 press conference today to discuss the US Senate vacancy. I expect him to announce the dates for the general and primary elections, and to discuss his desire for a law that lets him appoint a temporary Senator. I don't expect him to say who he would appoint if given the opportunity.

But just in case he does, here is my Top Ten List of people who Deval Patrick will NOT appoint to the US Senate::

10) Kerry Healey

9) Franklin Park Zoo president John Linehan

8) Sal DiMasi pal Richard Vitale

7) Benjamin LaGuer, the not-paroled rapist and alleged former Patrick pen-pal

6) "Skip" Gates

5) Boston police officer Justin "jungle monkey" Barrett

4) Carol Aloisi 

3) former MBTA head Dan Grabauskas

2) the woman holding the Obama-as-Hitler sign at Barney Frank's town hall

1) state senator Marian Walsh
