Person of the Day: Hillary Pretzel

While refusing to admit a “mistake,” presidential candidate Hillary “Bachman” Clinton and her speechwriters enter the War Room, racing against time to find the perfect language to appear hawkish AND antiwar. Fighting the Vast Logical Thought Conspiracy.


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.
