Da' Bulls, da' Bears, da' Capitol Hill




"I'm getting excited about it. I'm just thinking about it"

-Coach Ditka on the possibility of a Senate Bid.

As you've no doubt heard by now, Mike Ditka, the golden calf of many a Chris Farley SNL sketch, may run for US Senate. According to a CNN segment earlier this morning, one of the hurdles in his way is...

...his wife.

[insert tired, misogynistic joke here ]

She's quoted as saying she'll divorce him if he decides to run. Of course, didn't Maria threaten Arnold with the same when he was still mulling a shot at Gray Davis' job? Weak...

Tom Selleck is the only recent celebrity that has seriously pondered a stab at politics without jumping on full-throttle (ok, AP, prove that statement wrong). If Ditka's talking about it, and if there's even websites out there supporting him, he'll no doubt do it.

With Ditka now involved, the senate race in Illinois is beginning to make last year's Davis recall look more boring than a trip to Jiffy Lube. Last month, Republican nominee Jack Ryan dropped out after his wife, Star Trek's Jeri Ryan, ditched his S & M craving ass. All this race is missing is a porn star and Gary Coleman.

Reagan, Ventura, Schwarzenegger and now Ditka. Given the pattern, and the increasing number of washed-up celebs jumping into politics, Joey Harrington will no doubt be landing in the governor's mansion around 2030.
