Iran, Al Qaeda Endorse Dems

It’s nice to have friends abroad, but there are some that should probably be left off the Ramadan greeting card list. Nancy Pelosi is undoubtedly less than pleased that both Iran and Al Qaeda in Iraq have hailed the Democrats victory as a triumph for their causes as well. At least Rush Limbaugh is enjoying himself.


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.
