9. Carly thinks he's the remuneraTED one.

Like I said before, none of this makes any sense unless they're planning to bounce out as a third party right away.

Within a month the filing deadlines begin to close, so they have to move soon--within days or weeks--to get signatures.

They aren't going to get a convention, so they make the running-mate announcement now while Cruz still still has a dedicated press corps.

The idea of Cruz and Fiorina together is terrible, no doubt, but they're not running to win.

They are running to make sure that nobody wins.

They run as ultra-conservatives, hoping to bag Texas and the deep south.

Trump, in the meantime, tacks hard-left, steals some of Bernie's campaign, and aims for the mid-atlantic and former industrial states.

If, between the two campaigns, and with the help of the entirety of the Republican election-theft mechanisms, they can bag 270 electoral votes, then nobody wins. It becomes a contested election. The presence of a strong third party screws up the statistical studies, obscuring the election theft.

The contested election goes to Congress. Republicans in Congress are told to protect themselves by not permitting the question to come to a vote.

Nobody is elected President, Republicans in Congress are held relatively blameless, and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan inherits the White House as per the line of succession delineated in the 25th Amendment.

Ted and Carly get to pocket millions and millions in campaign cash, and maybe President Ryan throws them a bone.

It's a good plan; I've been talking about it since last year. The only thing that can realistically stop it, should the smears against Mrs. Clinton finally begin to work and it gets close enough to steal, is to vote out every damned Republican in the House of Representatives so that it's the Democrats who choose whether or not to hold a vote, or give it to their Speaker. Don't see that happening if they're already rigging the Presidential election.

Of course, it won't work at all if Hillary can stay far outside of the margin of error, as Senator Obama did, and win an overwhelming victory.
