Mitt Romney Goes MAD!

MITT HAPPENS DEPT.

In a secretly recorded video, Republican candidate Mitt Romney tells a group of his fundraisers that he doesn’t worry about the 47% of Americans who support Barack Obama and who don’t take responsibility for their lives. To make matters worse, Romney has stolen his no-worry approach from another perennial presidential candidate — MAD’s own Alfred E. Neuman.

Similarities Between Occupy Wall Street and Actual One-Year-Olds

PROTEST OF ENDURANCE DEPT.

A lot can happen in a year. Or, as we learned from Occupy Wall Street, nothing can happen at all. Today marks the one-year anniversary of OWS and...that’s about all it marks. For all the excitement, the promise of change and the energized followers, there have been no lasting, positive effects (something Obama supporters are all too familiar with). Still, anniversaries are a time for reflection, and it got us thinking about…

How the Students of Chicago Have Spent the Past Week

OUR TEACHER PRESENTATION DEPT.

For the past week, Chicago’s teachers have been on strike — which means that for the past week, Chicago’s students played hooky legally! Although the media have covered the talks between the teachers, the politicians and a tentative agreement, there’s been little talk about what the students were up to! And, to us, that’s the real story! Which is why we took everything we knew about Chicago (1: they have deep dish pizza, 2: it’s called “The Windy City”) and dug even deeper to find out…

Other Nude Shots Accidentally Tweeted by Celebs

ALL THE NUDES THAT’S FIT TO PRINT DEPT.

Yesterday, HBO’s The Newsroom picked up a bunch of new 13-year-old fans after actress Alison Pill accidentally posted a topless shot of herself to Twitter. We asked the show’s creator, Aaron Sorkin, to comment — but that was an hour ago, and he’s still walking around our office in circles, talking endlessly about nothing.

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… 

Where’s China’s Missing Vice President Xi Jinping?

NOT FOR ALL THE FLEE IN CHINA DEPT.

There are so many mysteries in China right now! First off, Xi Jinping has vanished! Second — who is Xi Jinping?!?! He’s the Vice President of China, and is presumed to be the next president — and he’s nowhere to be found. It’s unclear if he’s sick, or the victim or an attack, or just super into naps. No one “in the know” is saying where he is. Which is why those NOT in the know (that’d be us) are stepping forward with explanations!

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:
