Senator Ditka? It could happen...

Illinois Republicans are working feverishly to draft former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka to replace Jack Ryan as the GOP nominee on the ballot for the US Senate seat up for grabs this fall.

Ryan withdrew his name from the ballot after a sexual scandal came to light involving Ryan and his television actress ex-wife, Jeri Ryan (from Star Trek: Voyager and Boston Public). However, as of this past weekend, Ryan had not officially removed his name from the ballot.

While on the other hand, Da Coach is said to be seriously considering entering the race. DraftDitka.com is pushing for more support across the state.

'Da Coach' was just on Fox News in the Morning from Chicago. He said that he is 'Thinking about Running' and that he is interested! We have come very far in the past week, but now we need to get the push over the top. We need more signatures on the Petition. We want to present them to him this week and we need your help.

Da Coach will do this if we push him!

Everyone went nuts when Vice President Cheney told US Senator Pat Leahy (D-VT) to go "F" himself. Could you imagine what a cigar-chomping Senator Ditka would tell Leahy (not to mention what he'd say to Jabba The Kennedy, Tom "Deeply Saddened" Daschle, Hillary "The Wicked Witch" Clinton and Chuckie "Snidely Whiplash" Schumer)?

Jabba The Kennedy

Pardon me while I wet-vac my keyboard.

Did you know Dr. Pepper really burns when it passes through your nose?

Is there a place where we can submit a petition for Da Coach to run?

sam, there is a petition at the site Michael linked to: draftditka.com

I still don't know what to make of this one, Michael. lol It's almost funny... but an act of pure desperation, for sure.
