GAMMA QUADRANT UPDATE….What’s that, you say? Barack Obama is palling around with terrorists? That is so last week. Here’s a more recent tour of the Gamma Quadrant:

One: Bill Ayers really wrote Obama’s book, Dreams From My Father. Two: Obama had an underage, gay affair with a pedophile. Three: It’s entirely possible that Obama was involved with bombing the South African rugby team while he was at Columbia in the 80s. Four: Obama, Bill Ayers, and Jeremiah Wright (via a chain of associations too Rube Goldbergesque to summarize) were engaged in a conspiracy to teach Pan-African “cultural nationalism” to Chicago schoolkids during the 90s. Five: Obama was having an affair with one of his fundraiser babes in 2004 until Michelle found out and banished the woman to a “little Caribbean island.”

There’s no evidence yet that Obama was actually the secret love child of Malcolm X, but I’m sure we’ll find it soon enough if we just keep digging.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
