A few more for ya: 1) "The fucking most ridiculous thing I've ever heard": Perhaps the best gem (uttered by a close friend of McCain, w/r/t the Sarah Palin pick) from Jane Mayer's New Yorker piece on Palin, although there's a lot more to treasure in there as well, including the fact that one of Palin's biggest initial boosters was Dick Morris (one hopes she wasn't wearing open-toed sandals when they first met), and that one of Palin's strongest qualifications for office is that she apparently says a really kick-ass grace before meals. 2) Chris Hayes: Menace to Democracy. 3) The photo that you might have heard Colin Powell mention during his MtP endorsement of Obama can be seen here.

Be one of the first

Help kick off the new era of In These Times! Without a media that brings people together and creates a written record of the struggles of workers, their voices will be fragmented and forgotten.

The mission of In These Times is to be that written record, and to guide and grow those movements.

We have a lot of work ahead of us, and that work starts today. Early support is the most valuable support, and that’s why we’re asking you to pitch in now. If you are excited for this new era of In These Times, please make a donation today.
