  • COTTON AND GRASSLEY: Gassing in Iowa.

A Tweet from Dave Weigel, accompanying Sens. Tom Cotton and Chuck Grassley to town hall meetings (something Cotton is loathe to attend in Arkansas)

Cotton is a one-man roadblock to judicial appointees, from the Supreme Court to court of claims, not to mention juvenile justice reform and other useful work. So he's to give Grassley cover on the Republican blockade of President Obama's qualified and non-controversial Supreme Court appointee Garland.

Cotton knows in blood-red Arkansas you can say or do anything — even back a pussy grabber — and fear no voter backlash.

Funny guy.

Cotton and Grassley also did 22 pushups to honor the daily suicide toll of veterans. And Cotton told Weigel an investigation of Hillary Clinton might be appropriate by an attorney general in the next administration. Of course he did.

Trump is also, Weigel reports, responding to questions about Trump with questions about Hillary.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
