Way down south in the land of Cotton, where civics lessons seemed to have been forgotten, 47 Republican senators have decided to cozy up to Iranian hardliners, because they just can’t stand Obama. Tom Cotton (R-AR) authored and was one of fourth-seven GOP senators who signed an open letter to the Iranian leadership. The letter in a childish and condescending manner attempted to explain the machinations of American government, incorrectly I might add. The letter claimed that the nuclear arms agreement that is currently being negotiated, could be tossed out later, which is not true. Iran showing more sense than the US Senate, dismissed the letter as propaganda. Meanwhile, Kim Jong Un wonders why they never write to him?
Critics have accused the senators of treason or violation of an obscure and likely unconstitutional 18th-century law called the Logan Act. Enough people have signed a Whitehouse’s online petition asking that these senators be charged under the Logan Act that the Whitehouse will at least have to publicly respond to the petition. The thought of 47 GOP senators being led out of the capital in handcuffs does sound appealing though, especially since I will soon be in our nation’s capital. Yesterday, we got an invitation from our Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) to tour the capital building, but because too many other people are also going to be on spring break in DC we won’t be able to tour the Whitehouse or the Bureau of Engraving. Too bad about the Whitehouse, but since Engraving doesn’t handout free samples, I won’t miss it too much.
