Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


The Hitler Business isn’t what it used to be. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad got a swift kick in his jihad this week when his chief rival, Ali Larijani, was elected speaker of the Iranian parliament by a landslide. Too bad. It’s a loss to the McNeocains of the world as well as to the world of illustration. Where will we find another like him? So crazy-ugly-crazy. Ali loves nukes too, however, but doesn’t seem to be a mental patient and apparently is okay with talking with his enemies. TIMES STORY
