Brodner’s Person of the Day: Eliot Spitzer

It’ll be sad to see Spitzer go. Any one of his face fields (huh?) by themselves would be enough for anyone. Counterclockwise: A: His skull is the capitol dome; B: The nose is the car driving his “date” down to D.C.; C: His massive chin as a big piece of cheese; D: The large flapping ear: his poor, haggard (and probably lethal) wife. This is such a sad story. We caricaturists sometimes just have to force ourselves to deal with these things. We’re so misunderstood. Let me be. I’ll be all right.


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.
