MoJo Mix: 3 August 2009

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


I can’t decide whether the ongoing Birther resurgance is a) the usual wingnuts doing their usual wingnut thing, or b) a brilliant GOP tactical ploy to divert attention from health care reform. You? While you mull it over, 3 questions for your Monday mix:

1) Will health care reform actually happen?

2) Carbon footprint, sure. But what’s your water footprint?

3) Why is HBO’s 40-year-old co-creator of Hung claiming there are no talented and attractive actresses over 35?

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
