MAD Magazine's 5 Dumbest People, Events and Things of the Year (Exclusive)

The usual gang of idiots over at MAD Magazine is releasing their annual list of the stupidest people, events, and things of the year next week and we have an advanced look.

Over the last few years, MAD has given Huffington Post readers an exclusive look at some of the things on the list, and this year is no exception. (Here's a MAD look at John Boehner, MAD's Dumbest Person of 2008, and their 2008 Election Coverage.)

If you ask me, their political commentary is often as spot-on and relevant as The Daily Show and SNL and it makes me proud to bring their idiotic visions of politics to the readers of The Huffington Post.

Their number one pick couldn't hit the nail more on the head. And that it was able to mash up two of my favorite things (making fun of politicians and The Walking Dead) made me very happy.

This issue hits newsstands on 12/20.
