RS Interview: Rep. Tom Cotton (R CAND, Arkansas Senate).

Arkansas, of course, is prime pickup territory for the GOP these days: incumbent Democrat Mark Pryor is considered to be in serious trouble by… well, pretty much everybody and it’s just not a good cycle for Democrats in general. We talked to increasingly-likely Republican candidate Rep. Tom Cotton earlier today about the race, and what he plans to do to win it:

PS: Technical note: several of my questions had to be re-recorded because of a rather spectacular post-interview technical glitch that I am still trying to figure out. Fortunately, none of Tom Cotton’s answers got garbled, which is pretty much the important thing anyway. Nobody’s here to listen to me.

The lady’s not for jumping.

Oh, this was Maggie to a T.

Short version: There was a  Swedish interviewer once who had a gag where she asked her interviewees to jump (a perfectly harmless gag, mind you).  When the interviewer had Margaret Thatcher on, Thatcher downright refused to jump on cue.  Cheerfully. Without apology.  The word ‘puerile’ was used.  As Maggie put it:

I made great leaps forward, not little jumps in studios.

That she did.  That she did.
