Huffington Post notes
that it took U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton less than a minute to get to a mention of Adolf Hitler in his first Senate floor speech, a call for enormous increases in defense spending.

He quoted Winston Churchill during the German dictator's rise to power.

At the link, you can view a video of the speech in its entirety.

Polling, by the way, continues to show strong support among the public for negotiations with Iran. 68 percent support, 29 percent oppose. These are national numbers, not Arkansas, where Cotton enjoyed a runaway electoral victory last November.
