Dalliance of the Day

Hillary Clinton, showing Bill a thing or two, bussed right-wing web-news maestro Matt Drudge with a scoop on her reaction to Obama’s attack. This, combined with her recently restated Iran war whoop, shows you (or she) can never be too right wing these days. And the right loves her back, sort of like people who believe in The Rapture who claim to love Jews. The front-page piece in the Times yesterday ends with this quote from Drudge: “I need Hillary Clinton. You don’t get it. I need to be part of her world. That’s my bank.”

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today.

We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
