Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

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


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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
