Ditkamania: Day Five

Now it’s a top story in the major Chicago papers.

For the record, I don’t have any idea whether Da Coach would make a good senator, or even candidate, but as promised, Ditkamania is already fun to watch. Check out this exchange of quotes, first from Ditka:

“I am very conservative, and a lot of people aren’t going to like that. I am very outspoken and a lot of people aren’t going to like that, but that’s me. So if they don’t like me they vote for the other guy.”

… and then from Democratic nominee Barack Obama:

“He would give me pause if I was meeting him on the football field,” said Obama, 42. “Even though he is older than me, he looks pretty tough. I can take him on the basketball court. And I’m convinced I can sing ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game’ better than him.”

    Sorry, Will, but I just can’t stop sniggering. “Ditkamania” sounds too much like a gay porn title.

    You keep up dat kinda talk, and da Superfans are gonna send you a cheesesteak garnished wit, whaddayacallit, poison ivy…

    He passes the first “frank” test. He’s not a lawyer, and if there are fewer lawyers making law , that can only be a good thing. If I see one more bespectacled blue suit-white shirt-red tie legal wonk, “a former partner of the famed law firm “Dewey, Cheatham and Howe” run for office, Im just going to choke. Cant we have atleast one motorcycle mechanic run for office?

    Serving in the legislature should be like jury duty, you try like hell to avoid it, but when you get called, you do it, and then you get the hell out and back to real life as soon as you can.

    Obama vs. Mini-ditka on the basketball court? Mini-ditka wins.
