Veep Rumors


VEEP RUMORS….Will John McCain announce (or “leak”) his choice for vice president tonight during Barack Obama’s acceptance speech? Obama communications chief Dan Pfeiffer is willing to bet he won’t: “If they do it,” he told Politico, “I will pay all of McCain’s mortgages next month.”

Yeah, sure he will. This is just more cheap talk from liberals. Everyone knows Cindy paid cash for all their homes.

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
