Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Boston Strip Teas

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Scott Brown, tea-party Republican (who comes, it seems, from the same factory that makes Romneys and Thunes) now leads in the Massachusetts Senate race for the Kennedy seat. More famous for his Cosmopolitan sexy-guy nude spread than his hard-right opinions, he’s in serious danger of coaxing voters from poor Martha Coakley, who only offers experience and intelligence. If he wins on Tuesday (as seems likely), there goes the 60-vote margin for health care of any kind. Ditto any chance on global warming, financial regulation, foreign policy sanity, etc, etc. The Obama years. I remember them. But mostly the tea.

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. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. 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.
