Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Boy With The Straw Hat


The full-frontal foreign policy debate gets hotter everyday. McCain thinks there are votes in attacking Obama as “anti-war.” These new pieces for The New Yorker are about where that connects with Bush and how that winds up conferring bona fides on Obama in his nomination fight. The print piece is an homage to Diane Arbus’ Boy With the Straw Hat. The movie is our special recipe for egg salad. Hanoch Piven calls it “disgusting.” Serge Bloch agrees. Well, none of these people have actually tasted this. Maybe that’s a good thing!

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.
