HOW CAN WE FORGET … ANY BETTER NOW?
What’s remarkable about the debacle over Sen. Tom Cotton‘s (R-Ark.) letter to Iran isn’t his hard-line policy stance, the unorthodox political maneuvering or even the GOP’s cavalier approach to so serious a foreign policy issue. In fact, Cotton has been doing genuinely wild things in foreign policy since his earliest days in Congress. His elevation to a Senate ringleader — one who appears to be taking very little internal GOP heat for a stunt that has damaged the party’s reputation — isn’t really about leadership or governing at all. It’s a sign of something much deeper than the letter: that deeply hawkish establishment Republican donors have demolished the small-government, war-skeptical tea party wing of the GOP that seemed ascendant just a few years ago.
In May 2013, then-freshman Rep. Cotton made his legislative foreign policy debut, offering the first amendments of his career in a House Foreign Affairs Committee markup session for what the GOP had dubbed the Nuclear Iran Prevention Act of 2013.
Cotton proposed an amendment that would significantly expand the list of Iranians subject to U.S. sanctions, based on nothing more than familial identity. Any relative to the “third degree of consanguinity” of the elite Iranians already on the sanctions list would automatically become subject to the same economic restrictions. In other words, as Cotton put it: “parents, children, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, grandparents, great grandparents, grandkids, great grandkids.”

Criminal, truly. While the republicans chase conspiracy here and there, what we should be looking at is all the criminals in the GOP.
