Mad #346 (Nick Meglin and John Ficarra) - Loose Buchanan Issue - June 1996

Pat Buchanan was a speech writer for Richard Nixon (1913-1994) who must have thought that he was therefore qualified to run for the office of president.  He pledged to never raise taxes and to preserve the country for pasty-white people.  Buchanan's narrow-minded philosophy made him ripe for this parody of Pat the Bunny by Dorothy Kunhardt (not "Koldhardt").  Writer David Shayne sums the Buchanan platform in four pages drawn by Sam Viviano.  Last year (2012), he was fired by MSNBC for alleged racist slurs.  According to his website: "Patrick J. Buchanan (is) right from the beginning."  [JAM 3/24/2013]
