Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Brankrupt Political Philosophy

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.


Two good articles this week in The New Yorker and The Nation on the end of the line for conservative dominance in American politics. Comfort food for us told-you-so’s, regardless of who wins the White House. I did the one illustrating the very good George Packer piece and my buddy Victor Juhasz (one of the most gifted narrative artists anywhere) was plowing the same field over at The Nation (his is much funnier). The loss for the conservatives is expensive. Think of all we’ve had to experience for people to start to wake up. Maybe they’ll stay that way awhile! Here’s to that.

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.
