When asked recently if victims of rape should be allowed to have an abortion, idiot Congressman Todd Akin (R-Missouri) said that such pregnancies are "really rare.” “If it’s a legitimate rape,” he added, “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” The predictable political backlash followed and soon Democrats AND Republicans were re-evaluating his creepy campaign — saying it was time to shut that whole thi
It was announced this week that The Tonight Show is making budget cuts — which means not only a pay cut for Jay Leno, but also the loss of 25 jobs on the show. As much as we could argue that the real victims of The Tonight Show are anyone who’s been forced to watch an episode, this is still sad news. And since Jay is a razor-sharp satirist, unafraid to address any topic (including how Trump has a comb-over!), we’ll probably be seeing these jokes on his very show!

It hasn’t been a good year for the former cast members of the classic TV sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter. In January, actor Robert Hegyes (Juan Epstein) died. And today we’ve learned of the passing of Ron Palillo (Arnold Horshack). Once again we present the front cover of MAD #189 which featured Welcome Back, Klodder (that’s Palillo in the lower left hand corner) and our entire satire of the show as well.
Over the weekend Mitt Romney announced that his vice presidential running mate would be Paul Ryan, a U.S. Representative from Wisconsin’s 1st District. Not that much is known about Paul (especially if you’re not into reading newspapers or researching things).
