Brodner’s Person of the Day: Pete Domenici

The Conventional Wisdom had it that September would be the beginning of the end of our current role in the Iraq Civil War. Wrong. It is now. Yesterday’s papers and talk shows were so full of it, in and between the lines, that it is almost hard to process. There was a growing sense that the Republican talking points are now being abandoned. Byron York in the Post had a piece on how Bush has lost his base, in part, because of losing the War (I’ve been wondering when someone would say that). The GOP is apparently not happy to smash itself to bits for the egos of two power-mad liars. Pete Domenici is the latest in the Iraq exodus. Soon they’ll need to charter a ride.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
