Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Winston McCain


Yesterday and today we’ve seen the now routine spectacle of Petraeus and Crocker coming to Washington to tell Congress and the rest of us to butt out of their war-thing. Surprisingly, Congress, even the Republicans, yesterday shouted back, ‘Hell no!” This from Dowd today:
“They arrived on the heels of the Maliki debacle in Basra, which made it stunningly clear — after a ceasefire was brokered in Iran — that we’re spending $3 trillion as our own economy goes off a cliff so that Iran can have a dysfunctional little friend.
Not good news, given Ahmadinejad’s announcement that his scientists are putting 6,000 new uranium-enriching centrifuges in place.”

And there sat McCain, strapped to this war. Here’s our film about that. Click on Winnie to watch.

FACT:

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.
