Ditka's Out, Jordan In?

Just because Mike Ditka turned down the vacant Republican candidate slot for the U.S. Senate, doesn't mean the party should give up on celebrities.

Draft Michael Jordan!!! Draft Oprah Winfrey!!! Draft Harry Carrey!!! They'd all be damn sight better candidate than Ted Nugent, even dead as a doornail Harry (remember John Ashcroft lost his Senate race to a dead guy).

Unfortunately Jordan, who appears to be a Republican, has already contributed $10K to Democratic candidate Barack Obama, and you can be sure Oprah was hit up for dough early on. Harry Carrey has been dead too long to run, which leaves...

Bill Murray?

Have your say... Who should get the nod?

I'll move. I'm young (but will be 30 by Election Day) and am a huge Packers fan. If the Illinois GOP can handle the fundraising I'll lend the pretty face, a loud mouth, and a lively weblog.

After I'm laughed out of the meeting, I'll yell to them, "Stupid FIBs."

Yeah, Jordan is a Democrat.... (Below threshold)

Yeah, Jordan is a Democrat.
