Heavens, Another Must-Watch Palin/Couric Clip

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


CBS continues its quest to destroy the McCain campaign by releasing another interview clip that makes Sarah Palin look utterly unprepared for the vice presidency. (I was wrong yesterday when I said the can’t-name-a-Supreme-Court-decision clip was the final one.) Try to watch this one and not snicker.

Am I crazy or is this the sort of answer Jay Leno might get while questioning a random person in a Jaywalking bit? “Hey buddy, come over here. What’s the worse thing Dick Cheney has done in the last eight years?” “Uh, I dunno Jay. I don’t really follow the news. He shot that old guy, right? That was pretty bad!”

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.
