PUBLIC VIEWPOINT Reader: Who Are The Groomers?
Posted: October 1, 2013 at 2 a.m.
I have followed the political apotheosis of the Republican Tommy Cotton. Not to be confused with Peter Cotton Tail. It has been observed that Tommy is the target of a “smear” campaign. I don’t think I or my wife have written anything that could be construed to be a smear though the man is for certain smearable. He is against everything! He opposes the Farm Bill, a bill that helps the farmer and the poor in our state and his district. This vote of his means he is willing to let children go hungry. He has also voted against the Violence Against Women Act. Is he then for violence against women? Hmm. He voted against Medicare for the elderly and Obamacare, so he must be for death panels. He has even voted against veterans’ benefi ts. And he is a veteran. He boasts that he has defended our beloved Constitution against the Taliban, al-Qaida, and an assortment of other Arabs.
