Brodner’s Person of the Day: U.S. Bridge Team

Members of the U.S. bridge team, which last month won the world championship in Shanghai. They are now facing sanctions for holding up a sign disclaiming all responsibility for the monstrosity the U.S. has become under the corrupt and perverted hand of Bush & Co. The U.S. Bridge Federation actually says it can cancel free speech within its confines. Very interesting. What does it think this country is about, I wonder. These ladies all deserve our total support. The truth has its own purposes. Besides, who among us doesn’t travel abroad without the icky feeling of suspecting the Bush BO your hosts think you have. You’re not just whistlin’ Dixie, Chicks.


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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
