Because I am a masochist, I used to watch the aimless, Starbucks-drenched trainwreck that is Morning Joe every morning. After waking up, I would let the resentful squawking between Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Willie Giest (whom I otherwise love), and whatever poor soul they convinced to join them provide a…

Susan Sarandon went on All in With Chris Hayes Monday night, where she opined that maybe it would be better to vote for malfunctioning wind turbine Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, because he’ll usher in the revolution.
