Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Scott McClellan


Scott McClellan, former chicken, reincarnated rooster, crowing up the sun…which blasts light, as it was destined to do, on the most sludge-laden White House of all time (the fact that he, McChicken, was responsible for much of it notwithstanding). The Bush administration, seen to be a lock-stepping death machine, still in lockstep, responds by saying it is “puzzled.” No doubt. That stuff can really clog your brain. PS: Er, fraud…impeachable, eh?

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
