MOUTH WATERING-GATE DEPT.
CLASSIC MAD DEPT.
Ten years ago today, President George W. Bush dressed up as a fighter pilot (the only incident of presidential cosplay we know of), landed on an aircraft carrier, and declared “Mission Accomplished” in the Iraq War — which actually didn’t end until 2011. So, as Dubya celebrates the opening of his Presidential Library, we celebrate with the cover of MAD #437, on which we anointed his premature declaration of victory as one of The 20 Dumbest Things of the Year for 2003.

CLEAR AND PRESIDENT DANGER DEPT.
Yesterday, the White House released Michelle Obama’s new official portrait. And while she looks great, and it features her celebrated bangs, we’ve recently learned that there were other shots taken that featured alternate hairstyles for the First Lady! Never one to shy away from exposing a political scandal (no matter how coiffe-based) MAD is proud to share these…
To quiet those who have questioned the president’s gun use, the White House released a photo over the weekend that showed Obama skeet shooting. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words — but in this case, the picture is only telling half the story (so, it’s really only, like, 500 words…600 words max). What was really in Obama's sights? We can only speculate.
Yesterday, Steven Spielberg’s film Lincoln received 12 Academy Award Nominations including one for Best Picture. The film is a stirring, wonderful tribute to the Great Emancipator, which is more than we can say about this cartoon from MAD #500. It comes courtesy of the twisted mind of Mr. Duck Edwing.
