It Has To Make Sense Before You Can Call It Sleazy


IT HAS TO MAKE SENSE BEFORE YOU CAN CALL IT SLEAZY….Joe Klein calls this John McCain’s “sleaziest smear,” but I’m just plain mystified. What is this supposed to mean:

My friends, this is the problem in Washington. People like Senator Obama have been too busy gaming the system and haven’t ever done a thing to challenge the system. That isn’t country first, that’s Obama first.

Obama has been gaming the system? Huh? Is McCain just letting the Attack-otron 3000 put together random words for him and then delivering them without bothering to see if they make sense or not? He’s been all over the map for the past week.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
