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! MAD, however, has always felt that everyone deserves to have their voice heard (although we wouldn’t mind if The Black Eyed Peas fell silent forever…) which is why we now present:

Mitt Romney's Campaign Journal

GOING THROUGH AN AWKWARD PHRASE DEPT.

Mitt Romney has come under a lot of fire for being out of touch and awkward. The bad news is, it’s completely true. But the GOOD news is that it’s awesome to watch him interact with strange new people in strange new situations. Who knows what’s going through his well-coiffed melon during all this? Actually — we do! Luckily, we stumbled upon… 

Fact-Checking the Claims Republican and Democratic Conventions

CREATIVE LICENSE EXPIRED DEPT.

Both the Republican and Democratic Conventions are now officially over. But there’s no time for tears — there’s fact checking to be done! During the last couple of weeks, a lot was said about a lot of things — and since it was politicians talking, not everything was entirely…accurate.  Paul Ryan and Bill Clinton both drew criticisms that they didn’t have all their facts straight — and we suspect that’s just the tip of the iceberg! So, being the civic-minded busybodies that we are, we’re proud to present:

Governor Chris Christie's Role at the Republican National Convention

GOV MAKES THE WORLD GO ‘ROUND DEPT.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be giving the keynote speech at the Republican National Convention today — provided Hurricane Isaac doesn’t destroy the state first. (No worries — Rep. Todd Akin insists that a state can “shut things down” in the event of a “legitimate storm.”) Christie is considered a charismatic and entertaining speaker, so it’s hoped that he’ll energize and unite the party before Romney officially gets the nomination.

Information about Paul Ryan Now Being Spread by Democrats

LEGENDS OF THE PAUL DEPT.

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). So aside from the fact that his last name is also a first name (crazy!), we weren’t sure what to expect from The Man Who Would Be Veep. Luckily, we stumbled across this…

MAD Exclusive: The Prayer Mitt Romney Left in Israel's Wailing Wall

MITTSHUGGAH DEPT.

Recently presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney made a holy pilgrimage to Jerusalem, where, just like any other divinely-inspired traveler, he was immediately showered with over a million dollars in campaign donations. Romney even visited the Wailing Wall — world-renowned for its cracks packed with the written prayers of visitors. Always respectful of local customs (and the opportunity to sway impressionable Jewish-American voters), Mitt stuffed in a prayer of his own. The Idiotical has an exclusive look at what Romney wrote on his slip of paper. Don’t believe us?
