WATCH: Newt Gingrich is Godzilla! [Cartoon]


Click here and here to see Zina Saunders’ previous depictions of Newt Gingrich for motherjones.com.

Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week’s animation, Godzilla Newt Gingrich lumbers onto the campaign trail and promptly makes a mess of things. As always, that’s Saunders performing the voiceovers. Sound effects are from freesound.org. —The Editors


UPDATE:
Zina sent along one more depiction of Newt, originally commissioned for David Corn’s 2009 magazine piece “Dawn of a Newt Age“.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
