No dice. WaPo says Ditka turned the Pubs down. I’m sure TCF is suitably…disappointed by the loss of such a promising entertainment. Better luck next time, Bert. Of course, this does mean that the Illinois GOP still doesn’t have a replacement for Ryan. The word is that after Ditka nixed a run, they went after Ryan–to come back. Now there’s a smart move. Has the GOP lost what’s left of its mind? They’re acting almost like, well, Democrats.
Update to the Update: Au contraire, TCF is relieved. I think he’s losing his sense of humor over there…. BTW, a commenter at TCF says Atrios says the newest GOP brainstorm is Ted Nugent. That’s too good to be true….
