Wow. Our experiment is off to a great start—let's see if we can finish it off sooner than expected.
Editors' note: Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week's animation, we find the Koch brothers and their political minions Cantor, Bachmann and Ryan commandeering the ship of state. They may think they’ve won the prize, but all they’ve done is sink themselves and the rest of us along with them. As always, that's Saunders doing the voices.
