P.S. ... Oops. Joe Ricketts Rejects "Ricketts Plan"

"Joe Ricketts is a registered independent, a fiscal conservative, and an outspoken critic of the Obama Administration, but he is neither the author nor the funder of the so-called “Ricketts Plan” to defeat Mr. Obama that The New York Times wrote about this morning. Not only was this plan merely a proposal – one of several submitted to the Ending Spending Action Fund by third-party vendors – but it reflects an approach to politics that Mr. Ricketts rejects and it was never a plan to be accepted but only a suggestion for a direction to take. Mr. Ricketts intends to work hard to help elect a President this fall who shares his commitment to economic responsibility, but his efforts are and will continue to be focused entirely on questions of fiscal policy, not attacks that seek to divide us socially or culturally."
That was swifter than a swift boat! A Suggestion?! Maybe Joe realized that trying to be an anti-Obama gunslinger in Chicago is a bit of a heavy load. Haven't his Republican pals schooled him on the frightening aspects of so-called "Chicago politics"? That it makes the priggish Karl Rove look like a rank amateur running for the tall grass after going mano-a-mano with Mayor RAHMBO EMANUEL?! Good move, Joe. You don't want to go there, do you. Hey Joe, where you gonna run to ... may I suggest: Mexico?
