I'm having a hard time seeing this Ted Cruz ad as anything but a parody.

Do you see what I'm saying?

If I did not know any better I would think it was one of those fake commercials that SNL creates for their show.

The punchline of course is at the end when the Hillary Clinton campaign supposedly has no idea how to run against Ted Cruz.

Please, if Ted Cruz were the candidate the only thing that might keep the Clinton campaign from squashing him like a bug in the first two or three days of his nomination is that they would be too busy laughing hysterically and high fiving each other.

By the way did anybody else find the actress playing the Huma Abedin character kind of hot?

Nope, that's just me again isn't it?

  2. Whoever chose the music for that ad was an idiot, if s/he is really on Team Cruz.

    Alternately, they just pulled off a brilliant coup as Political Ad Double Agent.

  3. No, it's not just you. On both counts.

    Jesus Christ, this ad is an instant classic, exactly the way Plan Nine from Outer Space was.

  4. Oh NOEZ!!?! The terrifying fake Hillary: a not-young woman who is NOT smiling! Who bears the Vertical Parallel Lines of Disagreement between her eyes, worn there through decades of observation, reading, and reflection! [Viewers clutch pearls, faint]

    How Ted Cruz thinks that this instant comedy classic will help him is beyond me.

      The real Hillary may look that haggard after four years as President and having to put up with all the Republican bullshit.

    The only thing Saturday Night Live could add is giving Hillary's eye's a demonic glow at the end.

    Did the TRUSted people forget about the acronym that comes up first in Google: Trans Rectal UltraSound?

    No, that's gotta be the clue that says it's a parody.

    at 1.02, the glass panel the camera is looking through has written on it (backwards): "realistic politics" == which must be the name of who created it. ??

      It looks like that panel is a strategy board. The meeting is supposed to be a strategy meeting in Hillary's camp. I'm sure it is to look like they are planning and conversing about all opponents.

      I think the TRUSted is Cruz's new logo

      It says 'policies', not politics.

    At 1:02, I see it more clearly now: it says

    BERNIE:
    Realistic policies

    Is it made by the BernieBro guys?

    That logo towards the bottom of the right side? At first glance, it looks much like Al Jazeera's. TRUSted and his underlings to go all the way in screwing things up.

    An ad that spoofs itself!

    It's almost as funny as that movie about Sara that some weirdo made for her campaign for presidentess.

    Do presentations still depend on slide projectors, or was this thrown if for the "drama effect"? This is so out of touch I'm surprised they were not using a magic lantern instead.

    1. McCain's campaign sent fake emergency NEED MOAR MUNEEZ NOW "telegrams" in 2008, complete with yellow paper and STOP instead of periods at the end of sentences. It would have been really clever if the election were being held in 1908 instead of 2008.

      So yeah, I'm not surprised that they used a slide projector. Maybe the next ad will show someone making a call on a rotary phone or plugging a dial up modem into their TRS-80 computer.

    2. I haven't used a slide projector in thirty years. Note to Cruz campaign: there is this new technology called "computers" that can be used for digital presentations. It actually plugs into the same electrical outlet you are using for the slide projector . . . that is, if you are not stuck in the 1980s, back when Reagan was president.

      Oh, now I get it. Stuck in the Reagan years.

    That is hysterical! And, yes, the Huma actress is hot.

  15. The "docudrama" that came out a couple years back about Michael Jackson revealed how absolutely INSANE the people around him acted.

    I came away from it, thinking, "No WONDER the poor guy turned out so strange...he was worshiped like some sort of freakish GOD by his inner circle, as well as most of the known world."

    What Ted Cruz obviously needs is at least ONE normal person who is close to him, to whisper, "Sorry, pal...but your whole 'Christian Ayatollah' bit is just too hot for America to handle, right now."

  16. W T F did I just watch??!

    Using the soundtrack from the movie "Carrie" was creepy as shit! I love how this video reflects how sneaky, creepy and scary Ted "Oozed" really is.

    Anyone else notice how Ted's folks got in all the fucked up shit about Drumpf and made it sound as if it was coming from the Hillary camp? That's some skills there! Ted early on claimed he wasn't going to talk bad about another Republican...this ad just backs it up!

    What a scumbag who will NEVER be President...along with Drumpf...two stinky peas in the same pod!

    SNL need to spoof this for sure...but then who would be able to tell the difference! LOL!!!

    Hillary 2016!!

    I find it ironic that Gryphen attacks Trump but then behaves the exact same way that Trump does, by talking about women only by how fuckable they are. You're one helluva hypocrite.

    1. Well you got me.

      Obviously I have never talked about Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, or Hillary Clinton based on their merits but only because I am so hot for them.

      Yep, clearly the evidence is overwhelming.

    So Ted Maple Leaf Cruz took Donors' hard earned money to show the world he has the fantasy of being a front runner or even a candidate worthy of debating Hillary? But, for some odd reason, he probably gets a laugh out of it and thinks it's effective.
    And yes, Gryph, The Amedin actress is and exotic beauty, just like Heidi, but that's subjective. She's the only woman who'd marry him
