WATCH: Bizarro Boehner to the Repeal! [Cartoon]

Can Nancy Pelosi thwart his evil health care plan?


Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week’s animation, Bizarro* Boehner descends on Capitol Hill to repeal health care reform. Can Nancy Pelosi thwart his evil plan? And yes, that is Saunders doing the voiceovers. —The Editors

*The Bizarro World is a fictional planet in the DC comics universe, introduced in the early 1960s and home to Bizarro and his companions, all of whom were initially Bizarro versions of Superman, Lois Lane and their children. In the Bizarro world of “Htrae” (“Earth” spelled backwards), society is ruled by the Bizarro Code, which states “Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!” [Source: Wikipedia]

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
