Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Boy With The Straw Hat

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


The full-frontal foreign policy debate gets hotter everyday. McCain thinks there are votes in attacking Obama as “anti-war.” These new pieces for The New Yorker are about where that connects with Bush and how that winds up conferring bona fides on Obama in his nomination fight. The print piece is an homage to Diane Arbus’ Boy With the Straw Hat. The movie is our special recipe for egg salad. Hanoch Piven calls it “disgusting.” Serge Bloch agrees. Well, none of these people have actually tasted this. Maybe that’s a good thing!

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
