Kane - we mean Glenn Jacobs - said Monday that he has "no plans on running for political office at this time" following a report late last week that he might be planning to take on U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander.

The World Wrestling Entertainment star said "things get a little carried away on the Internet sometimes" in response to a Reason magazine post that quoted an anonymous source as saying Jacobs is weighing a run.

Perhaps Jacobs was the victim of an icy staredown from Alexander, who has been trying to intimidate potential tea party foes into staying out of the race. Or maybe Jacobs is just biding his time for now.

Regardless, like a good wrestling storyline, the idea of a Citizen Kane campaign has grabbed our attention.
