MAD Magazine's Banana Republicans: An Exclusive Look

Posted: Updated:

The usual gang of idiots over at MAD Magazine have come up with what I think is one of their funniest political spreads over.

Hitting newsstands next week will be a "Banana Republican" catalogue and Huffington Post readers get to see it first.

I wonder how the GOP all-stars feel about appearances in MAD Magazine. Do they think it's an honor to be poked fun at by a magazine that's been doing it for so long? Do they shrug it off, assuming that only morons and teenagers (and teenage morons) read it?

Or do they get upset that the media is taking yet another easy potshot at their clear lack of sensibility?

Can you imagine the kind of mind that would be upset by appearing in MAD Magazine? Personally, I'll know I've made it if I make it into MAD.

If these don't at least make you giggle, then you need more humor in your life.
