President Bush Finishes Second
President George W. Bush comes in No. 2 on Mad Magazine’s annual list of the 20 Dumbest People, Events and Things of the Year. Mad‘s January issue cites Bush for breaking the presidential record for most vacation time. The president is no stranger to this dubious honor: It’s the eighth year in a row he’s made the list.
Other political figures who made Mad‘s cut: No. 12, former vice presidential aide Scooter Libby ("man for all treasons"); No. 17, Alberto Gonzales ("He promised he wouldn’t resign, but … it was the one lie he told that we could all be happy about"); No. 18, Sen. Larry Craig ("another … Republican just came out of the water closet").
And No. 1? Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, "the world’s worst dog owner."
