FUNDRAISING!….Among other casualties of John McCain’s recent descent into mental breakdown, you can add the fundraising drive we were planning to hold this week. See, the plan was to make up a bingo card thingie with words and phrases you were likely to hear at Friday’s debate — sort of a drinking game for politicals dorks — and invite everyone to go to our fundraising page and download it. Oh, and maybe throw a few bucks our way while you’re there.

So what now? Well, the bingo card is already finished. And we still need money to support our (suprisingly expensive!) commitment to in-depth, original, up-to-the-minute reporting on the campaign. Real journalism ain’t cheap, and we need your support to keep it up.

So click here to help us out and download your bingo card. After all, maybe everything will get resolved at the big 4 pm summit in the White House and St. John will deign to debate the issues Friday night after all. If that happens, we’ve got you covered.

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.
