AKA: Happy Halloween, If the Elections Weren’t So Scary, They’d be Hilarious
Decades of lesser evil voting and a growing plutocracy have brought us to the two most hated presidential candidates in history. The public discourse has devolved to discussion of the illegal behaviors of the candidates while the United States and the planet are facing multiple crises. We can almost hear Nero’s fiddles. To help us get through the next week, we invite political comedians Lee Camp and John F. O’Donnell to join us for some therapeutic humor.
