Dumb Jackhole Sen. Tom Cotton Still Thinks He's President Of Obama



Is Iran still a thing? Apparently, yes. And you know what else is still a thing? Newbie Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Teabagsville) getting himself all confused about who is the boss of Us-of-A America, and who is a newbie senator who doesn't know nothin' ’bout nothin' and should shut his dumb face hole before he gets pwned (wait, is pwned still a thing?) on Twitter again by Iran's foreign minister.

Go on, Senator, show us how you did a dumb this time:

Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statements on reports that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid may filibuster a Senate vote on the Iran Nuclear Deal:

First, the president did an end-run around the Constitution by refusing to submit the Iran deal as a treaty requiring a two-thirds vote of the Senate for approval. Now Harry Reid wants to deny the American people a voice entirely by blocking an up-or-down vote on this terrible deal. If Harry Reid has his way, Congress won’t even get the little oversight we were provided in Corker-Cardin. He is obstructing because he is scared. He knows that a majority of Americans and Senators oppose this dangerous deal, and that its only chance for survival is if he and the president ram it down the throats of the American people.

Sorry to interrupt, but no one is ramming a treaty to avoid thermonuclear war with Iran down your throat; you're thinking of gay marriage.

The Congress and the president should speak with one voice when it comes to dealing with the Iranians, but --

Stop right there, Tom, and put down the paste you're eating. Because we coulda sworn there was some senator who scribbled a letter in crayon to Iran suggesting that so-called "President" Obama does not have the authority to talk to Iran, does not even have the authority to look it up on Google Maps. Who was that? We forget.

While Cotton has been throwing a temper tantrum like a toddler who needs a diaper change, the grown-ups have been trying to make a deal happen so we could maybe avoid getting ourselves stuck in yet another endless war in the Middle East. (The grown-ups have also found some time to laugh at Cotton for being A Idiot, because grown-ups can multitask.) Avoiding war actually is the goal here, even if Cotton doesn't realize that.

But if the senator now thinks the president and Congress should speak with one voice -- all of a sudden and contrary to everything he has done during his brief tenure -- he might consider letting the Obama administration do the talking, because Cotton's chest-thumping and Twitter failing clearly hasn't worked.

Yeah, that's my daughter and I made this






First, NASA sent its last message to the Mars Opportunity rover! THEN scientists said that all the insects are dying but not the human-looking ones in the GOP. As if THAT wasn't enough, some brave pendejos with grandes cojones are going to try and get seafloor creatures from under a giant ice shelf in the ANTARCTIC!

So, yeah, all three of those stories happened last month. Let's cover each in a science lightning round.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is terrible at her job. Her objectives and overall mission are evil, but if it's any consolation she can't effectively implement them. After buying her Cabinet position at Sotheby's, DeVos has spent the past two years trying to roll back Obama-era policies designed to protect and actually educate students. Unfortunately for her evil schemes, federal courts keep smacking down her slimy efforts. It's getting embarrassing.

DeVos recently had to cancel $150 million in student loan debt after courts said her attempts to stop the "borrow defense" regulations from taking effect were in fact illegal. Last week, she was forced to instruct colleges to follow the Obama rule barring mandatory arbitration agreements. She got kicked in the teeth earlier this month when a federal judge ruled she'd acted illegally ... again. This time, DeVos tried to delay an Obama-era guideline that required states to address racial disparities in their special education programs. Judge Tanya S. Chutkan called the delay "arbitrary" and "capricious."

The rule, drafted under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, would require states to identify districts with "significant disproportionality" in the number of minority students channeled into special education services, segregated in restrictive classroom settings or disciplined.

OK, so what was the "education" secretary's issue with this rule? We want to imagine there's some rationale we're not seeing and DeVos is more than just some yacht-collecting monster.
