"Comedy Before Country" Election Issue: MAD Magazine #495
It was the last month of what seemed to be the longest Presidential election in American history. If it were not for the interesting characters running for office, it would have been the most boring election in U.S. history as well. As the days got closer to the actual vote, the excitement began to overflowâand then out of the blue a well known political figure threw his hat into the ring, Mad Magazine's mascot, Alfred E. Neuman joined the raceâOk, he is a illustration and therefore some would say unfit to run the country, and he's also an idiot, which would normally be another strike against his candidacy if it wasn't for the fact that American tax payers are accustomed to having an idiot as President already. I tried to contact Mr. E. Neuman for comment about these allegations, but all I got was this stupid magazine and a note which said, "What Me Worry?"
