Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Boston Strip Teas

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Scott Brown, tea-party Republican (who comes, it seems, from the same factory that makes Romneys and Thunes) now leads in the Massachusetts Senate race for the Kennedy seat. More famous for his Cosmopolitan sexy-guy nude spread than his hard-right opinions, he’s in serious danger of coaxing voters from poor Martha Coakley, who only offers experience and intelligence. If he wins on Tuesday (as seems likely), there goes the 60-vote margin for health care of any kind. Ditto any chance on global warming, financial regulation, foreign policy sanity, etc, etc. The Obama years. I remember them. But mostly the tea.
