The Breakfast Club (Worse Case)

Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We’re a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we’re not too hungover we’ve been bailed out we’re not too exhausted from last night’s (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and weekend morning at 10:30am (ET) to talk about current news and our boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late, it’s PhilJD’s fault.

Something to Think about over Coffee Prozac

I can imagine that for most reasons President Pence would be even worse. Sure we wouldn’t have the ridiculousness of it all, but The Grownups Would Be Back In Charge and The Democrats Must Learn To Work With President Pence To Heal The Country (do whatever he wants) and a somewhat more competent implementation of evil would commence.

That is, unless the shit hits the fan under President Trump. It’ll be 3 months of reading The Pet Goat.
