I felt I owed it to all of you guys to ask this questionafter reading about the Senator’s latest stupid act. Here he is, quoted from Sunday’s Face the Nation. The following exchange, I’m pretty sure, has folks around the world scratching their heads. Yes here Senator Cotton demonstrated his knowledge of both geography and international politics that will make him famous for years to come:
Schieffer: What do you want to happen here [in the Iran negotiations]? What is your alternative here? Let’s say that the deal falls through, then what?
Cotton: Well as Prime Minister Netanyahu said, the alternative to a bad deal is a better deal. The Iranians frequently bluff to walk away from the table. if they bluff this week, call their bluff. The Congress stands ready to impose much more severe sanctions. Moreover we have to stand up to Iran’s attempts to drive for regional dominance. They already control Tehran increasingly they control Damascus and Beirut and Baghdad and now Sana’a as well. They do all that without a nuclear weapon. imagine what they would do with a nuclear weapon.
So I ask you, were Senator Tom Cotton and Norman Bates switched at birth?
