Live Blogging SOTU…


Thus far, Bush sort of sweet to Pelosi, pledges new era of bipartisanship, then goes on to congratulate Democrat (not cratic) party….

Think I just saw Cheney sticking a piece of gum under his desk…

Illegal immigrants will be treated “without animosity, without amnesty” (somebody worked real hard on that phrase).

Bush talking energy policy, Pelosi looks like she’s trying hard not to giggle…or maybe Cheney’s pinching her…

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.
