Mad Magazine Destroys Obama's Taliban Swap
3 Jun 2014
Count Mad Magazine as the first pop culture institution to target President Barack Obama's Taliban prisoner swap.
It's hard to imagine any other humorist in any other medium hitting back quite so hard in the days to come.
The magazine posted a fake movie advertisement for Trading Private Bergdahl, a takeoff on the Oscar-winning film Saving Private Ryan.
The one-sheet features five Taliban soldiers and President Obama with this kicker:
"They got five Taliban leaders. We got one deserting weasel."



Obama is no ordinary weakling

Those who compare the bare-chested conqueror of the Crimea with the metrosexual ruler of the United States and find our emperor weak to the point of deserving ridicule miss the essential strength of President Obama.

It’s no ordinary weakling who can turn a once-respected country into an international joke; reduce Congress to a gaggle of sniveling sycophants; turn the world’s finest medical system into a failed third-rate socialist nightmare with a stroke of his pen; shatter our Constitution without attempted recourse by the sons and daughters of frontiersmen and pioneers whose blood was used to write that inspired document; and turn the people of our once-united states into a herd of competing minorities who, like suckling pigs, are each afraid to lose his place on the government teat should he raise his voice to protest the ruin of our country.

So don’t denigrate the nonentity ruler who has overcome his uncertain ancestry and ludicrous incompetence to do what no other king or dictator has been able to do in our 237-year history: He has destroyed America.

I agree, except that he did not do all of those things himself; from the beginning he had the help and backing of wealthy, powerful people who used him like a puppet.  But, to his credit (discredit) he played his role well.
