If a person is at a crossroads, that person can either act like Elliot Richardson or act like Cotton.

Who is aptly named.

I guess that little Tommy Cotton is now all in the Skanky’s Putin Whore’s turd-filled Putin’s dickholster ass after the impeached criminal made the Bomb Iran, Bomb Iran conservative wet dream for the second coming of Jesus in the Middle East come true.

When “talking points” are true, it tends to lend them some validity.

I don’t know but there has to be some kind of planning involved. I don’t believe Tom just woke up today and decided to put on a suit and go lie on TV.

“It’s the Democratic talking point that the President and his lawyers have argued that it was Ukraine who interfered in our elections, not Russia,” Cotton said. “You can read the President’s brief. They make it very clear that, yes, you can accept that Russia interfered in a systematic, organized top-down fashion in our election.”

If Cotton wishes to come out and say “The reason I am acting so stupidly is because I have it on good assurance that Trump will cheat for the GOP Senate enough to maintain its Majority”

I would be happy to hear it.

Would save a lot of needless words. Cause that is the only reason I can imagine that Cotton is such a stupid interview today… that Cotton would be speaking and acting so contrary to what is polled to be desired by the American People, people who will vote this November:

(1) A Real Trial
(2) Real Witnesses, evidence and testimony

Wish I’d said it! You’re so right.

You can look at it and say that Cotton is a sniveling sycophant and a boorish moron. Both of these things can be true.
