Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Grasslier Than Thou

It’s been a cathartic day going after AIG and the bonuses. It’s a political chocolate factory; free righteous indignation about the bonuses (nobody’s mentioning the billions going to banks through AIG that don’t need them). Eliot Spitzer (yes him) wrote interestingly about that on Slate. Chuck Grassley last night called for the bonus boys to commit hara-kiri. To sample the current mood on Capitol Hill we’ve asked four representatives to join us for their take on AIG. Thank you panel.


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.
