Brodner’s Person of the Day: Rudy the Impaler

Let us pause and note, among other news of the day, the proud work of the good people of Florida who have banished from public life (for the foreseeable) Rudy the Impaler. Never to be mayor or president . . . or to ever again publicly turn Ground Zero into a grotesque banquet hall. Down he goes and how wonderful to watch. Die, Dracula, die.


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.
