Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Who’s Afraid of Liz and Dick?


Even staunch conservatives lately have been calling Liz Cheney out for going too far: calling the DOJ the “Department of Jihad” for having the poor judgment to provide legal defense to Gitmo prisoners. (So much easier to just drown them.) Ken Starr and Lindsay Graham have been trying to distance themselves from the Cheneys, explaining that legal representation is an essential part of the US criminal justice system. I remember Liz and Dick in that brilliant film version of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” They played a twisted, foul-mouthed couple in a spectacular insult marathon. You can’t look…and you can’t look away.

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.
