Cubs fans should take heart. The Ricketts family that owns the Cubs apparently has what it takes to think outside the box about ways to make the Cubs champions and Wrigley Field a garden of baseball Eden. Billionaire patriarch Joe Ricketts is right at this very moment thinking outside the box about ways to end the presidency of Barack Obama.

Joe Ricketts, founder of TD Ameritrade, “is increasingly putting his fortune to work in conservative politics,” the New York Times reports Thursday. The Times offers a detailed description of a 54-page, $10 million plan called “The Defeat of Barack Hussein Obama: The Ricketts Plan to End His Spending for Good.”
