The man who has created several presidents for the hit TV show "24″ says it's "nuts" to think of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton being the next real president.

"I'm not even sure that Hillary is a fait accompli [to be the Democratic nominee] at this point," Joel Surnow, the executive producer of the Fox show, told reporters and bloggers over the weekend, according to the Washington Times. "Are we nuts thinking Hillary Clinton could be president of this country?"

"Honest to God, just stand back and think about it," he added.

So let me get this straight: The man who went with Rush Limbaugh on that ill-fated trip to the Dominican Republic, forever inflicted upon us the "Jack Bauer Scenario" as a foreign policy, not to mention the completely unfunny Half Hour News Hour "comedy" show (I use that term loosely) wants us to believe that the idea of President Hillary Clinton is nuts???

You might very well ask who is Joel's man of choice?

Rudy "A noun, a verb and 9/11" Giuliani. Now, that's nutty.

Can you help us out?
