Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Lincoln and Gang


Lincoln, now 200 and looking better than ever. This for the Goodwin “Team of Rivals” review in The New Yorker. Here also are Chase, Bates, Stanton, and Seward, all of whom had had designs on the White House but in a time of crisis came together to help. It took a tough guy in the center to hold this together. Lucky we had one who was a deep thinker and a mensch as well. Hoping for similar luck this year, natch.

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.
