Senator Tom Cotton (R, AR) speaks truth to Biden on foreign policy.

Sorry: I can’t write out ‘truth to power’ with a straight face when it comes to Joe Biden.  Anyway… “Sen. Tom Cotton challenged Vice President Joe Biden’s criticism of the GOP’s letter to Iran, questioning his foreign policy expertise…. “Joe Biden, as [President] Barack Obama’s own secretary of defense has said, has been wrong about nearly every foreign policy and national security decision in the last 40 years,” the Arkansas Republican said Tuesday on MSNBC.”

Tom Cotton went on to note that if Joe Biden loves the Senate so much then he should have told the President point-blank to stop trying to squeeze Congress out of the treaty-making process.  Left unsaid, apparently, was the (to me, at least) commonplace observation that since Barack Obama keeps claiming that he doesn’t know about anything until it hits the papers then Sen. Cotton had pretty much no choice but to advise the President in a format that President Obama would at least find familiar.  Also left unsaid: Vice President Biden should probably start remembering that the Senate is increasingly a place filled with people who are contemptuous of him, and rightly so.  We went to quite some trouble to replace Mark Pryor with Tom Cotton, after all…

Oh, two last things for those trying to pin a Logan Act violation on the GOP for this one.  One, you’re all a bunch of pig-ignorant doofuses (doofusi?).  Two, the reason why you’re all a bunch of pig-ignorant doofuses (doofi?) is because “The Logan Act doesn’t prevent members of Congress from speaking to foreign governments.”  As was noted by… Media Matters for America.  And here’s the screenshot, for when they take that entry down (H/T to @hunterpearce for that one). Mind you, the Constitution takes precedent over this one anyway, which is why the more rabid elements of the Left are screaming so loudly.  Well, and because they’re all a bunch of pig-ignorant doofuses (I should just stop trying to make that word operate under another language’s grammatical rules)*…

PS: Joe Biden famously wanted to divide Iraq into three bits.  We have that on the cusp of that happening, right now.  How is that situation looking on the ground, again?

PPS: The President made a drastic mistake when he decided that he could shut Congress out of the process and make an unilateral deal with the Iranians.  He made a bigger one in hiring whatever daft fool on his staff it was that kept him from hearing about the pushback on this until Sen. Cotton wrote his open letter.

      As PG Wodehouse demonstrated, it is a lot of fun to play with words.

      Doofus, Doofusses, Doofi, Doofa, Doofex, Doofette, Uberdoof, and so on.

        The Attic Greek plural is Doofae.

          There you go – fun with words.
          “Here in the undersea world of Jacques Cousteau we track the migrating habits of the North Atlantic Doofea. Jean-Claude takes the submersible down and…Sacre Bleu! A great Doofus is trying to mate with the submersible, thinking it is a Doofex! We need to get Jean-Claude to the surface before he is twisted like Troy McClure!”

    “He went full Biden!”
    *shakes his head*
    “You never, ever go full Biden.”

    Iran is an openly avowed enemy off the United States of America, by
    weird and deed.
    Treason is committed by a US citizen giving aid or comfort to the enemies off the USA.
    Obama wants to remove our economic sanctions on Iran, and legitimize Iran acquiring nuclear weapons.
    But somehow, those who object are traitors?
    .
    Houston, we’ve gone through the Looking Glass.
