WATCH: Bizarro Boehner to the Repeal! [Cartoon]

Can Nancy Pelosi thwart his evil health care plan?


Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week’s animation, Bizarro* Boehner descends on Capitol Hill to repeal health care reform. Can Nancy Pelosi thwart his evil plan? And yes, that is Saunders doing the voiceovers. —The Editors

*The Bizarro World is a fictional planet in the DC comics universe, introduced in the early 1960s and home to Bizarro and his companions, all of whom were initially Bizarro versions of Superman, Lois Lane and their children. In the Bizarro world of “Htrae” (“Earth” spelled backwards), society is ruled by the Bizarro Code, which states “Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!” [Source: Wikipedia]

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
