The new issue of "MAD" magazine, which hits stands on Tuesday the 17th, features the annual "MAD 20," a list of the 20 stupidest people of the year. And while there are some serious contenders in this category -- Joe "You Lie" Wilson; the politician who claimed to be hiking the Appalachian trail when he was hooking up with his Argentinian mistress; and that guy who just attacked a Greek priest with a tire iron thinking he was an Arab terrorist -- I feel confident that if you meditate on the concept of exceptional idiots, one particular face will swim into focus.
