President Obama's reelection has caused right-wingers to become completely unhinged. They are purple-faced and apoplectic, convinced that an ignorant horde of government-dependent social leeches has destroyed traditional America and banished God from the country. The craziest comments came from certifiably loony celebrities. Gun-crazy rocker Ted Nugent tweeted that “Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav [sic] a president to destroy America,” and former Saturday Night Live goofball Victoria Jackson let loose a series of tweets, saying in part, “Thanks a lot, Christians, for not showing up. You disgust me… In the Good vs. Evil battle, today Evil won.” Egomaniacal rich guy Donald Trump simply called for a revolution.

As New York and the surrounding areas continued to clean up the enormous mess left by Hurricane Sandy, most of the city's late-night shows - and one temporary import, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" - were back on the air Tuesday. The most notable exceptions were "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report," both of which were canceled, thereby depriving election- and storm-weary viewers of some much-needed levity. For the second night in a row, Letterman delivered a desk-bound monologue before a vacant Ed Sullivan Theater.

In the midst of a 48-hour swing-state blitz, President Obama took a brief detour into deep blue territory with a visit to "The Tonight Show" Wednesday. In contrast to his appearance on "The Daily Show" last week , Obama's chat with Jay Leno was a mix of serious policy talk and lighter moments. More than anything, though, it was a bid to certain key constituencies: namely, women and swing-state residents. The president earned his biggest laughs with a dig at Donald Trump, whose latest publicity-mongering stunt fell flat Wednesday . "What's this thing with Trump and you?"

Donald Trump's Wednesday presidential race "game changer" turned out to be anything but. The "Celebrity Apprentice" host promised he had information that would have a dramatic effect on the race for the White House between President Obama and Mitt Romney, but the short two-minute video released on YouTube turned out to be a bizarre offer from Trump to donate $5 million to Obama's favorite charity if the president released his college records and...

Donald Trump released his much-heralded “October Surprise” on Wednesday and the only surprise turned out to be how the reality TV star and business magnate continues to find new ways to embellish his special brand of media-centric depravity. Since Monday, the cartoonish personality had claimed he had news that could change the course of the presidential election between President Obama and Mitt Romney. Instead, it inspired widespread mockery, as Trump merely rehashed tired old insinuations about President Obama's national origin and college credentials.

“Tomorrow I will be tweeting on only one subject,” the “Real” Donald Trump tweeted to his 1.6 million Twitter followers just after 2 p.m. EDT Tuesday. A minute later he followed with: “My announcement is tomorrow!” Trump's teasing message apparently refers to the “October surprise” he said that he would unleash on President Obama this Wednesday. All proof that The Donald finds nothing more fascinating than a presidential election, except a presidential election involving him. It was hard to tell whether anyone really had a lot of interest in Trump's big reveal.

Investors who lost millions of dollars when a Donald Trump condominium project in Baja California failed during the economic meltdown are going to get some of their money back - over Trump's objections. A developer of the Tijuana resort agreed to pay $7.25 million to settle a lawsuit brought by 190 buyers - many of them from Southern California - who lost $22 million in deposits after the project failed in 2008. Trump, who remains a defendant in the investors' lawsuit, wanted developer Jason Grosfeld to cover 100% of the buyers' losses.
