CAN'T WE DO BETTER? Still no Republican candidate for the open Senate seat from Illinois. There is some buzz around former Chicago Bear coach Mike Ditka ... see this and this and at least one heavy hitter is following this story.
Could make for some interesting days in Illinois, although Candidate Ditka would have to be ready for questions a bit more pointed than "That pass to Perry really fooled the Patriots, didn't it?" or "Comment on Martin's cheap shot."
Is sports broadcasting a counterexample to the proposition that the politics are more vicious in inverse proportion to the importance of the stakes?
