Quote of the Day: Laura Bush


From Laura Bush, in an interview with Ladies Home Journal:

George loves to tell the story of how all his Midland friends would come to the Oval Office and say, “I can’t believe I’m here.” And then they looked at him. Couldn’t believe he was there either.

I think I understand how they felt.

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.
