Thank us later, but right now you have some gifts to unwrap: 15 below, each a bitingly funny video by the comedian and Saturday Night Live alum Leslie Jones. Your mileage will not vary; these are guaranteed howlers, home recordings of Jones watching cable news and adding piercing commentary about broadcasters’ home-video backgrounds:

Take 1, to which her target and friend Tim tweets back, “Every time you tweet about my ponytail it only gives it more strength.” Leslie: “You can be you Tim you can be you the schuchie ain’t you.”

Take 2, with love lost for intercoms.

Take 3, with love gained for storage rooms.

Take 4, with love lost for purple ties.

Take 5, with love…gained? lost?…for an office library.

Take 6, with love of a kind for James Carville.

Take 7, an expression worth a million retweets.

Take 8, with love (love?) for skeletons.

Take 9, with no apologies to kitchens.

Take 10, with an eye for eyeglasses.

Take 11, an interior design salute to the Costa family.

Take 12, an interior design salute to the Pettypiece family.

Take 13, for when you live in a courthouse.

Take 14, for when you wear bowties at home.

Take 15, “Landlines are always my jam!!”

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
