Quote of the Day: Close to Zero


It’s Jonah Goldberg day! Here he is again, writing about Obama and nuclear weapons:

Even if we had no missile treaties of any kind, the likelihood that he would ever use nukes remains close to zero. I think pretty much everyone around the world knows that about him.

Jesus. I sure hope that the likelihood of Obama ever using is nukes is “close to zero.” Not exactly zero, mind you, because you never know. But close? Oh yeah. I wonder what likelihood Jonah would prefer?

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 so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
