Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas

Reactionary warmonger Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas exemplifies the GOP’s campaign to sabotage Obama’s landmark nuclear accord with Iran. Cotton has promised that war with Iran would be a cakewalk, victoriously completed in a few days. Cotton was also the initiator of the infamous letter to Ayatollah Khamenei of Iran signed by 47 GOP senators alleging that Obama had no authority to negotiate a nuclear accord. This letter was later described with terms ranging from mutinous to treasonous. Cotton was one of the first GOP demagogues to condemn the proposed accord, even before he had seen the text. Because of freshman Senator Cotton’s leading role in concocting sophistries and obfuscations to use against the accord, the GOP war party is now increasingly referred to on Capitol Hill as the Cottonmouths.
