Tired of politics? Mad magazine has no worries

Alfred E. Neuman turns 60 and what a life he’s led. The smart-aleck looking mascot to Mad Magazine has mocked everyone from presidents to actresses to Sesame Street, prodding us into becoming contrarians and rabble rousers.

On this Election Day, it’s fitting to give Mr. Neuman a well-deserved nod for his irreverent ways.

As Mad editor John Ficarra tells CNN, the magazine was founded at a time when no other publication told kids to question authority.
