Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Zombie Summit


The corpse of Harry Truman has reportedly been so pissed off by Obama’s tongue-tied, puny-spirited defense of his first two highly accomplished years in office, that it dragged itself across the country and showed up at the White House last night. “Goddammit,” it said. “What’s the matter with you? Carry the battle to them. Don’t let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don’t ever apologize for anything. Say: ‘It’s plain hokum. If you can’t convince ’em, confuse ’em. It’s an old political trick. But this time it won’t work.’ Say: ‘To hell with them. When history is written, they will be the sons of bitches — not I.’

“PS: Barry — you want a friend in Washington? Get a dog.”

 

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.
