Non-candidate to form explanatory committee?

Notes on the non-candidate's non-campaign, supplied regularly by the Wisconsin news media:

Former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson told TODAY's WTMJ4: I'm interested - but I don't know." He declined to give a time line for when he will make a decision and only said, "I'm still working on it."

It being the US Senate race. Too bad, while they had him on the line, TODAY'S TMJ4 didn't bother to ask him about a story that ran the same day, about how firms Thompson represents cashed in on the federal stimulus bill -- which he has criticized Sen. Russ Feingold for supporting. But then he might not take their call next time.

One more point for TT to ponder while he continues his never-ending non-decision making process:Feingold has more than $4-million in the bank. The election is less than seven months away, and Thompson doesn't even have a bank account, let alone any money

This is no doubt a typo, but an amusing one nonetheless from Fox6 News in Milwaukee:

New reports say Thompson told his Chief Advisor Bill McCoshen to file an explanatory committee, and that means lots of federal paperwork.

Thompson said recently he didn't need no stinkin exploratory committee, so many an explanatory committee could explain some of the contradictions in his non-campaign.
