Overheard at the Obama Inaugural

EXECUTIVE DERISION DEPT.

Yesterday was the Inaugural celebration and public swearing-in for President Obama’s second term! And while it’s historic and all that, not everyone could be there (if we’re going to stand out in the cold, we expect to get an Apple product or see the back of Matt Lauer’s head in person — and, ideally, both!). However, being the solid Americans that we are, we thought we’d pass along some of the highlights:

MAD’s Suggestion For the New Trillion-Dollar Coin

Un-asked Audience Questions From Last Night’s Presidential Debate

QUESTION AUTHORITIES DEPT.

Last night’s Presidential debate was done in a “Town Hall” format, with pre-submitted questions from audience members. Sadly, with all the misinformation, double-talk and accusations, there just wasn’t enough time for every presidential query!
