Senator Ted Cruz cuts a promo on the media in the 3rd GOP debate

VIDEO: Fox & Friends (Ted Cruz rails on the moderators)

"The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don't trust the media."Ted Cruz rails on the moderators
Posted by Fox & Friends on Thursday, October 29, 2015
TED CRUZ: Questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don't trust the media. This is not a Cage match, you look at the questions
- Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain?
- Ben Carson, can you do math?
- Jon Kasich, will you insult two people over here?
- Marco Rubio, why don't you resign?
- Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?
How about talking about the substantive issues people care about?
the contrast with the Democratic debate, where every fawning question from the media was "which of you is more handsome and wise... the men and women on this stage more ideas, more experience, more commonsense than every participant on the Democratic debate. That debate reflected a debate between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks.

APF Battle of the Billionaires Wallpaper: Donald Trump vs Mitt Romney

1280 x 1024 wallpaper: Republican nominee Battle of the Billionaires
Donald Trump is the clear frontrunner of the Republican race whilst Jeb Bush, the expected "establishment" candidate has been sliding in the Polls. Experts like Trump supporter, Ann Coulter have predicted that former Republican nominee Mitt Romney will eventually prevail but there have been no signs of him throwing his hat in the ring yet.
Ann Coulter Predicts Who Can Win in 2016
ANN COULTER: Listen to me, watch the debates, we're going to be so sorry we're not running Mitt Romney and we're gonna demand that he get back in because Mitt Romney would crush Hillary Clinton. You have no idea, you have no idea how good you had it. And you were lied to by fake Tea-Partiers and fake conservatives who cared more about pretending they were the only leaders of Conservatism and only trust them.
As you'll see in the end of the book [Adios, America], I'm evaluating candidates on the one issue, the only issue that matters because it determines everything else and Romney is the best we have on immigration other than Donald Trump and I don't think he's gonna be our nominee.
LARRY ELDER: Who will be the nominee?
COULTER: Mitt Romney

Paying homage to the WrestleMania 23 match that pitted Donald Trump vs WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, I present the Republican version of "Battle of the Billionaires".

Bill Maher: Donald Trump is the White Kanye

With Donald Trump's frontrunner status in the Republican Primary and HipHop artist Kanye's recent announcement to run for office in 2020, pollsters have already begun speculating on a hypothetical showdown between these larger-than-life personalities. Late night talk shows quickly began drawing comparisons between the two but it was APF pundit Bill Maher who described Trump as Kanye even before Yeezy followed suit with his own Presidential ambitions.

- Donald Trump Is the White Kanye (HBO)
BILL MAHER: I hear all over the media, "he's just a joke. It's just a publicity stunt, don't worry about it. It'll go away. It's not going away."... Here's the thing about Donald Trump. He never apologizes, he's never wrong. No matter what crazy thing he says, he's totally *inaudible*. He's the White Kanye.
--crowd applauds--
For a party whose base adores belligerence, this is the guy.
ERIC DYSON: But if he dreams that he's as intelligent as Kanye he better wake up and apologize
MARY KATHARINE HAM: He also has the most important quality for running for President which is thinking you're awesome enough to run for President
MAHER: That's right. They love that

Comedian Jackie Mason on the preposterousness of running for President in America

VIDEO: Michael Savage Interviews legendary comedian Jackie Mason (8-13-15)

Jackie Mason makes skewers the way Americans have accepted how they select their Presidents
JACKIE MASON: (8m 15s) I talk about the preposterous system the Presidency is. Take a look at these debates, is there anything more idiotic than these debates. You have 1 minute to express all your thoughts on Foreign Policy, the American domestic policy, anything that's happening in the world and you have to do it in one minute. If you happen to breathe a little slow, you've lost the debate. And you have to make sure you tell a joke better than the next guy because they don't remember any policy or position, they just remember who told the best one-liner or the best joke.
The next day that's all they're talking about, so it becomes a comedy contest. If this was 50 years ago Groucho Marx would be the President.

#AndNew Donald Trump for President Wallpapers

Following on from my Sarah Palin Wallpapers and Presidential PPV Posters, I've decided to warmup the Poster Factory for 2016.
With 44th President, Barack Obama wrapping up his two terms and the prospect of Bush VS Clinton III or a Donald Trump Presidency it was an opportunity I couldn't resist.

Drawing inspiration from the UFC and their man of the moment Conor McGregor, I've fashioned #AndNew posters for the soon-to-be 45th President, Donald Trump.

President Obama in conversation with Marc Maron

President Obama in the Garage with Marc Maron
Episode 613 - President Barack Obama
PRESIDENT OBAMA: (25m 55s) Increasingly I've spent my time thinking about "How do I break out of these old patterns that our politics has fallen into?". Which is part of the reason I'm here, I'll be honest with you. One of the conversations I've had with my communications team about is "How do we talk to folks who aren't already so dug into a particular way of thinking about politics that we can create more space for people to have a normal, ordinary conversation and one where the lines aren't so clearly drawn black and white, It's not this battle in a steel cage between one side and another.

MARC MARON: Well I became a little disillusioned. I used to do left-wing talk radio and I realised that there was a lot of things I was naive about...

Stephen Colbert will finish his show in 11 days, soon to replace David Letterman on 'Late Show'

Sadly our time is nearly up. Arguably the most beloved PunditFighter is leaving his post as influential Political Satirist to fill the shoes of an iconic American entertainer:
Stephen Colbert Will Take Over for David Letterman, CBS Announces
Letterman, the legendary, critically acclaimed host of the CBS late night series for 21 years, announced his retirement on his April 3 broadcast. Colbert’s premiere date as host of THE LATE SHOW will be announced after Mr. Lettermen determines a timetable for his final broadcasts in 2015.
Specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted LATE SHOW, will be determined and announced at a later date.
To commemorate his influence on Washington and to punctuate the homestretch with a bang, Stephen is broadcasting a special from the Nation's Capital:

Stephen Colbert presents: Mr. Colbert goes to Washington, D.C. Ya later, Legislator:
Partisan is such sweet sorrow: A Colbert victory lap '014
Announcing the Mr. Colbert Goes to Washington Special 
STEPHEN COLBERT: because as of tonight there are only 11 episodes of the 'Colbert Report' left... a lesser Newsman might stoop to a cheap publicity stunt before going off the air... but I for one have no time for a shameful last-ditch ratings grab because I'm too busy planning this coming Monday's show where I will be broadcasting the Colbert Report from Washington D.C.
Yes! It is my farewell to Washington special "Stephen Colbert presents: Mr. Colbert goes to Washington, D.C. Ya later, Legislator: Partisan is such sweet sorrow: A Colbert victory lap '014"
