Quote of the Day: Sarah P. on Mother’s Day

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


This is, seriously, a Mother’s Day tweet from Sarah Palin:

U.S. Moms: we are thankful 4 freedom!Despicable treatment of women in Iran(setting U.N.policy on women’s rights)make U.N.credibility a joke

We bloggers have an impressive ability to politicize anything and an even more impressive ability to somehow connect the day’s events to whatever our personal hobbyhorses happen to be. But we are as children compared to Sarah.

Personally, I’m thinking of dinner and flowers for Mother’s Day. But that’s just me.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
