Ditka Can't Handle the Press

Illinois GOP's Great White Hope storms out of super-secret meeting at the first hint of the Fourth Estate:

This morning in downtown Chicago, Mike Ditka left before a secret meeting with IL GOP decision makers began, angered about the media being tipped off.

Ditka was to meet with members of the IL GOP State Central Committee and to speak via conference call with state and national level Republicans as he considered whether or not to fill the vacancy left when former candidate for U.S. Senate Jack Ryan announced his intentions to withdraw on June 25.

Word leaked out to the press, and Ditka reportedly was angered when met by the media as he arrived. The former Chicago Bears coach exited the meeting before it began, and left in his black Escalade, obviously upset.

But will he be labeled "angry" as Howard Dean was?

Short answer: No.
Long Answer: Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
