I’m Already Bored of Republican Flip-Flop Coverage

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Right now, it’s all ideological reversals, all the time:

McCain: “Which side am I on? As John McCain eyes the White House in ’08, he is at war with himself over Bush’s escalation in Iraq.” Salon, Feb 20, 2007.

McCain: “Welcome to McCain’s flip-flop express.” Philadelphia Inquirer, Feb 18, 2007.

Romney: “The Talented Mr. Romney.” Washington Post, Feb 20, 2007.

Romney: “Governor Romney, Meet Governor Romney.” Newsweek, Feb 26, 2007 issue.

That’s just stuff I found surfing the web today. If you have been paying attention, you’ll have noticed coverage of Romney and McCain’s flip-flops at this nefarious institution.

Late Update: It’s two in two days for the WaPo editorial section! “Mitt Romney’s Extreme Makeover” Washington Post, Feb 21, 2007.

THIS IS BIG FOR US.

And we won't beat around the bush: Our fundraising drive to finish our current budget on June 30 and start our new fiscal year on July 1 is lagging behind where we need it to be.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please consider joining your fellow readers with a donation to help make it all possible. Whether you can pitch in $5 or $500, it all matters.

If you're new to Mother Jones or aren't yet sold on supporting our nonprofit reporting, please take a moment to read Monika Bauerlein's post about our priorities after these chaotic several years, and why this relatively quiet moment is also an urgent one for our democracy and Mother Jones’ bottom line—and if you find it compelling, please join us.
