Quote of the Day: Men on the Court


From Kathryn Jean Lopez, tweeting about Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court:

just wondering: are men allowed to be nominated to the supreme court anymore?

It’s pretty remarkable just how little it takes to bring out the pity party in conservatives. Two women in a row and suddenly men are an endangered class in the American legal profession. Conservatives may not care much about discrimination against minorities, but they sure do snap to attention quickly whenever they spy any potential slight against the majority, don’t they?

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.
