According to Tom Cotton, the mind behind the letter to Iran, the Iranian government must be stopped from obtaining a nuclear weapon, because their sphere of influence is so large that they already control a number of Middle Eastern cities – including Tehran. During an interview on CBS, the host of Face of the Nation, Bob…

    Perhaps he needs Joe Lieberman standing next to him, whispering in his ear the difference between Iraq and Iran.

    • ShelleysLeg March 15th, 2015 at 8:16 pm

      Considering his AIPAC funding, I would say he & Joe are already fast friends. And what about that other asshat, Michael Levin, trying to start up some fresh new sh*t with Obama?

      • William March 15th, 2015 at 8:26 pm

        Tried to listen to Levine once. I heard some screeching which sounded a lot like Eric Cartman on an amphetamine fueled rant. I thought that in broadcast radio at least one should have some sort of voice for it, or at least sound post puberty.

    Another Sarah Palin! I guess it’s not really surprising that the GOP has got a.big pool of stoooopid people.

    • whatthe46 March 15th, 2015 at 8:01 pm

      fresh idiots at hand.

    • Dwendt44 March 15th, 2015 at 8:26 pm

      Oh yes they can. Ever listen to Teddy Cruz?

      • granpa.usthai March 16th, 2015 at 1:36 am

        he don’t count. He’s got a forged out of country birth certificate.

    • granpa.usthai March 16th, 2015 at 1:35 am




      that’s about all.

      • rg9rts March 16th, 2015 at 1:37 am

        Something tells me it ain’t over yet….more like its just begun

      • nola878 March 16th, 2015 at 7:17 pm

        Won’t be happy until we take Kenner too!

  5. Person March 15th, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    Sanna is a little island off of Norway. Cotton is going write them a letter and tell them to not trust President Obama if goes there to go fishing or something?… Cotton is an idiot and the Fake Conservatives in the Senate are causing a ton of damage (as usual). Seriously we have to vote them all out.

    • granpa.usthai March 16th, 2015 at 1:31 am

      but if we vote them all out, we won’t have anybody left to laugh at.

  6. fancypants March 15th, 2015 at 8:06 pm

    I wrote a letter to tom saying that iran is 2nd on the list after we find WMDs in Iraq.

    • granpa.usthai March 16th, 2015 at 1:30 am

      it’d probably be better to write an open letter to the leader of Russia inviting him to come to America and teach the Republican Congress US History.

      • fancypants March 16th, 2015 at 6:15 pm

        if putin ever made the trip ? the republicons would find a way to make him a citizen of the united states then snowden would have to run things in russia

  7. William March 15th, 2015 at 8:09 pm

    This just in N. Korea already in control of Pyongyang

      oh chit!
      when his impotence wants to know who you are,
      it’s usually right before you were.

  8. William March 15th, 2015 at 8:20 pm

    On the plus side, Tehran Tom, the new idiot is taking some of the pressure off the old idiots.

  9. Person March 15th, 2015 at 8:21 pm

    Poor Cotton meant Sanaa- the capital of Yemen. The entire GOP Senate has given this fool their voice and they truly look stupid.

    • Foundryman March 15th, 2015 at 8:27 pm

      Yeah, but they have no regrets…

      • Person March 15th, 2015 at 9:12 pm

        LOL! And they never will! Yes, and that is further proof they are nothing but fools (as a fool can never comprehend their own stupidity)!!!

  10. arc99 March 15th, 2015 at 8:21 pm

    Events are unfolding rapidly and we are approaching a crisis situation.

    The Iranians have taken Tehran. The Iraqis have overrun Baghdad. The Dutch have taken Amsterdam and the Democratic party has taken most of California (the good parts).

    We are doomed!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Dwendt44 March 15th, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    The conservatives are getting sharper all the time. Next thing you know, Arkansas will take over Little rock.

      not if they keep soaking their noggins in Hot Springs.

  12. Tim Coolio March 15th, 2015 at 9:16 pm

    All those wars the right dreams of getting
    or spending America into! and would they
    support a tax increase to fund those wars?
    or would they do again like W did and cut
    taxes so they can put the wars on the Chinese
    credit card and force future generations to pay
    for them?

  13. Warman1138 March 15th, 2015 at 9:23 pm

    Oh I wish I was in the land of Cotton, where intelligence is long forgotten, look away, look away, look away GOPerland.

  14. burqa March 15th, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    Worst thing to happen since the Ires took over Ireland.

  15. ExPFCWintergreen March 15th, 2015 at 11:26 pm

    Our foreign policy is toooootally weak! Look how our enemies are prevailing! Not only does Iran control Tehran but Tom Cotton tells me — wait for it! — that Japan controls Tokyo! And we even used the Bomb on ’em! Twice! *snort* thanks a lot, Obama.

    • granpa.usthai March 16th, 2015 at 1:22 am

      hell, that’s nothing:

      Italians have been in control of Rome for nigh on 2,800 years and they still haven’t developed a nuclear weapon.

  16. fancypants March 15th, 2015 at 11:52 pm

    Noooooooo tom !

    sit down and have another beer

    • FatRat March 16th, 2015 at 3:36 pm

      Thumbs up.

  17. granpa.usthai March 16th, 2015 at 1:09 am

    WTH does that have to do with the bank of Utah lending it’s executive jet to Mitt Romney?

    at least they haven’t taken over the parking docks at the Tehran Airport.

  18. granpa.usthai March 16th, 2015 at 1:12 am

    so – how did Benjamin react to the opening Senate prayer ending in the name of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?


  19. Mathew March 16th, 2015 at 2:47 am

    Is mr cotton who is a freshman, young unexperienced hasty excited guy who wants to ahow off his talent? Or wants to make himself popular and make a name for himself? It is funny that he still does not know the map of middle east and then send advice to geopolitics of middleeast? He would be better off first listen to his elder then open his big mouth…

  20. fahvel March 16th, 2015 at 5:25 am

    are you all hoping that Hillary’s choices of the young and mean are a tad more intelligent than this cotton swab?

  21. oldfart March 16th, 2015 at 10:33 am

    tells me all i need to know
    Bob Schieffer not calling out Cotton about his Tehran statement
    there is no hope left for network news.
    might as well have the kardasians interview politicians from now on.

    Tom Cotton is also a hawk on women’s rights:

  23. anothertoothpick March 16th, 2015 at 5:10 pm

    We should learn, after two insanely stupid three TRILLION dollar wars, we need to keep these republitards far away from foreign policy as possible.
