    Pre-emptive thread silliness – but not sillier than what actually comes out of these people's mouths:

    From HuffPo (not your typical satirical site):

    'Deez Nuts' Is/Are More Popular Than Most Republican Candidates: Poll

    In other news, Scott Walker's campaign is in real trouble.

    "Deez Nuts" is hot.

    The independent presidential candidate pulled in the support of 9 percent of North Carolina voters, according to a Public Policy poll released Wednesday. That goes along with the 8 percent in Minnesota and 7 percent in Iowa he got in Public Policy's recent polling.

    Nuts' 9 percent beat out most Republican presidential candidates including Scott Walker, Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee (each with 6 percent) as well as Rand Paul (3 percent), Chris Christie (2 percent), Rick Santorum (2 percent), John Kasich (1 percent) and Rick Perry (1 percent). The independent candidate is also much more popular than Lindsey Graham who, the survey notes, has "literally no supporters."

    I'm solidly in the Hillary for President camp, but in case her campaign falters for any reason, here is an interesting Plan B:

    Here's the Ticket: Biden and Warren

    BTW, the meme that Hillary's polls are in decline seems highly questionable — the polls on RCP are dominated by Q'piac and Faux News, which renders them basically useless noise.

      It's no meme that her negatives are very high. It's no meme that various polls, not just right leaning, show her not much ahead of or behind several Rs in various high stakes states.That's scary considering that support will be solidifying behind the eventual R nominee.. Every time I see her being questioned about the e-mails I'm more turned off. 

      No matter what you think about the whole e-mail situation it brings out everything that those of us who don't much care for her dislike about her. She hates being questioned. She comes off as arrogant and how dare you not take me at my word entitled. She doesn't like divulging anything she doesn't absolutely have to and not until she absolutely can't fight it anymore. I would expect her style as President to be as secretive as she thinks she can get away with. I expect an HRC administration to be extremely low on transparency. 

      I also believe her ethics are governed by what she thinks she can legally get away with. Her attitude seems to be if it wouldn't get me convicted in a court of law it's OK. I'm solidly in the she's better than an R but I wish I had a better choice camp. I resent the hegemony of the Clinton big money machine that has shoved her down our throats.  I would consider your Plan B ticket a much better choice. Or Biden/Castro.
