You guys don't read any of the books I publish do you? He gets a major essay in the pagan Kennedy book.

What's a book?
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

So...back to Elizabeth Warren. Hillary kind of fell flat when she announced her candidacy...and now my news-aggregate method of catching up on shit has made me a bit curious.

Hillary endorsed Warren for the "Time Top 100" list, and write this fawning, glowing article about Warren (using the "champion" language that Hillary has just attempted and failed to pull off). On the WaPo blog, Hillary calls Warren "a leader" and implies that the nation needs her.

This is all very odd language and, of course, has fueled speculation that the Dems are more behind Warren than they are Hillary. (Which everyone's been saying anyway all along.)

Is she running?

She said no...in 2013.

And she keeps saying "no"...which is why I find it hilarious that there are all these "What if she runs?" stories out there.

We're getting close to the point where she won't have a choice. She's being sort of de facto drafted by the media (and by Hillary).

"I Was Forced to Run for President" is the title of my next screenplay.

Famed neurosurgeon Ben Carson announces White House campaign

DETROIT (AP) Retired surgeon Ben Carson has made it official, telling a crowd in his hometown of Detroit that he's running for president.

The former head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins hospital has never run for public office. But he's a star among some conservatives and will try to parlay his success as an author and speaker into a competitive campaign.

He told his rally: "I'm Ben Carson and I'm a candidate for president."

Carson is also expected to be the only high-profile African-American to enter the GOP's presidential primary.

He is the second White House hopeful to get into the Republican race Monday. Former technology executive Carly Fiorina declared her intent to run earlier in the day.

Ha! How many high-profile African-American's will be entering the Democrats' presidential primary?

I know the election is over a year away. And while I should be concerned that the fate of this crumbling empire could be put in the hands of any one of the insane GOP candidates, I have to say that the pure chaos of it all makes me kind of excited about 2016. I mean let's face it, isn't this kind of gonzo madness what American politics is all about, at least historically? I'm steeped in Ken Burns "Prohibition" documentary right now, and the candidates of that era make Trump and Mike Huckabee look downright reasonable.

Oh, and Trump could be the GOP candidate. Make no mistake. People will acclimate to his abrasiveness. (And he'll tone it down.) There a lot of people out there who like it as well. He and Chris Christie both should do well. I think somewhere in this thread, I mentioned that Christie should be the front runner, and I'm going to stick to my guns on this. I don't believe the Tea Party is going to call the shots on this one. I think the GOP knows they need a moderate to compete with the Hilary Machine, and I think Christie is just right.

I like Bernie Sanders, but I think the rolling tanks of the Clinton advance are too much for any Dem to stop.

My prediction over a year out is Hilary vs. Christie, with Trump pulling a Ross Perot and running as a third candidate.

You think Hillary will survive that long? She's already on the ropes with the whole email fiasco. Her numbers have plummeted. She's shot herself in the foot.
