Recently, Donald Trump posted a tweet about Jon Stewart that many felt was anti-Semitic. We don’t want to go after Trump for being religiously insensitive — after all, there are so many larger reasons to hate him! This is really just the tip of the disgusting, attention-whoring iceberg. Still, if he’s going to be active on social media, he should really go for the full experience. And we’re happy to help with our new feature, "A Selfie We'd Like to See."
ANY WHICH WAY BUT LUCIFER DEPT.
Yesterday, Kate Upton was announced as the cover girl of Sport Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue! And tonight, President Obama delivers the State of the Union Address! Guess which of these things more Americans care about? C’mon Barry, it’s time to give the people what they want!
When Bush family e-mails were hacked last week, among the leaked information were photos of paintings made by none other than former President George W. Bush. We were shocked to learn that W. has an artistic side, but not so shocked by the paintings’ amateurish mediocrity — the very quality we look for in all MAD illustrators!
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:
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:
Oh what a night! Not only is Barack Obama accepting the nomination at the Democratic Nation Convention, but the MTV Video Music Awards is also on! We don’t know which boring televised event to ignore first! But just because we’re not watching, that doesn’t mean we’re not paying attention — which is how we came to notice these…
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.
