Brodner’s Person of the Day: George W. Blast

George W. Blast. So with the NIH report telling him the Iran program was off, which he received in August, Bush beats the war drum extra hard in October. How will history judge him? How will history judge us for tolerating this man in office? So what is he? Completely stupid, mentally ill, or really evil? Maybe it’s a kind of cocktail.


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.
