Shocking Mad Magazine Cover: I 'Loved' Obama

The upcoming May issue of Mad magazine features a picture of Alfred E. Neuman wearing a t-shirt that used to say "I Love Obama" with love designated by a heart.

Somewhat surprisingly, the fictitious Neuman, holding a magic marker, has added the letters "ed" after the heart to make the t-shirt read "I Loved Obama."

As Glenn Reynolds marvelously noted Wednesday, "When you've lost Mad magazine..." (larger picture below the fold, h/t Transterrestrial Musings):

Makes you wonder how many former Obama-loving media members feel exactly the same way but just can't admit it to their readers and/or viewers.

Exit question: Will the remaining Obama sycophants in the press call Mad's editors racists for publishing this cover?

*****Update: Readers are encouraged to see another delicious kudo given to Mad by NewsBusters in 2008.
