Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Half-Time Preview

On Sunday’s Super Bowl, the Halftime Show will take its cue from the groundbreaking commercial scheduled by Focus on the Family in which Tim Tebow, college football star, makes his anti-abortion case by stating that he wasn’t aborted and he’s darned glad about it. Immediately following this announcement the teams will take the field at halftime. The Colts, playing assassinated abortion doctor George Tiller, will attempt to carry a pregnant woman downfield. The Saints, naturally, will try to save the life of her unborn fetus with firearms.

In the grand finale, with the field bathed in red, the cleansed spirit of Dr. Tiller rises in the shape of an enormous Madonna Macy’s balloon, cradling a brand new plump and very happy-looking football.


We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
