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.

For a limited time:

Donate $20 or more to In These Times and we'll send you a copy of Let This Radicalize You.

In this new book, longtime organizers and movement educators Mariame Kaba and Kelly Hayes examine the political lessons of the Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath, including the convergence of mass protest and mass formations of mutual aid. Let This Radicalize You answers the urgent question: What fuels and sustains activism and organizing when it feels like our worlds are collapsing?

We've partnered with the publisher, Haymarket Books, and 100% of your donation will go towards supporting In These Times.

Brian Cook was an editor at In These Times from 2003 to 2009. He now works on the editorial staff of Playboy magazine.
