EXECUTIVE DERISION DEPT.
Fifty years ago today, President Kennedy was assassinated — and all day long, we’ll be featuring some of JFK’s classic MAD appearances. Six weeks before Kennedy was even elected, the cover of MAD #60 was already congratulating the new president. Not that we didn’t hedge our bets. The front and back covers of the issue each congratulated a different candidate — meaning that no matter who won, we were on the winning side — a rare feat for a bunch of losers like the Usual Gang of Idiots.
