The thought of Hillary Clinton running for president is driving the RNC "nuts." So nuts in fact that they've come up with a simply not-brilliant idea. A giant, orange RNC squirrel.
The Republican National Committee is pushing back against all the 2016 buzz Hillary Clinton is getting, courtesy of her book tour with their own campaign. It involves a giant squirrel costume. The squirrel was first spotted — like its friend the fox — near the National Mall, wandering around outside a Hillary Clinton event at George Washington University.
How lame is this idea? They don't even have a name for their squirrel, I kid you not.
When a Daily Beast reporter asked the RNC's deputy press secretary about the squirrel, he didn't have much to offer, saying a name for the squirrel was TBD. “I actually don’t know his last name," the press secretary said of the intern. "He volunteered to be in the suit.”
Sorry, I can't stop laughing, but it's not because it's funny. Republican humor is not something they should ever flaunt. Oh, and its twitter is handle is @HRCsquirrel

I always thought having a Reince Priebus rodent following Hillary around would have been more entertaining.
