Leslie Newell Peacock asked Gov. Asa Hutchinson at a news conference today if he'd sign on to Sen. Tom Cotton's hectoring letter to Iran, a controversial missive that La. Gov. Bobby Jindal has said he'd sign and which former Texas Gov. Rick Perry has also said he'd like to sign.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis.
