Watching the Primary: Stone Temple Romney?

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.


mojo-photo-str.jpgCNN just went live to Romney headquarters in New Hampshire where everybody is looking pretty morose since McCain has just been projected as the winner. But to keep everybody feeling good, they’ve got some entertainment on stage: a guy playing acoustic guitar, singing a little tune for the assembled Romney supporters. What’s he singing? Hey, it’s Stone Temple Pilots’ “Plush”! Could there perhaps be a somewhat ironic couplet in that tune as regards the Romney campaign?

Where ya going for tomorrow?
Where ya going with that mask I found?

The “mask” thing is a bit of a stretch, maybe you can think of it in terms of a flip-floppy, “who’s-the-real-Romney” kind of thing? Anyway, one wonders what the audience thought of the next few lines:

And I feel, and I feel
When the dogs begin to smell her
Will she smell alone?

Video for the original song after the jump, for no reason.

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
