Judging from Twitter, the latest fad in extremist circles is to join Sen. Tom Cotton’s foray into usurping presidential authority for international diplomacy by waving a finger at Iran in hopes of provoking a conflict on which his backers in the defense industry can make some money.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and  former Texas Gov. Rick Perry said they’d be proud to sign on.

I’ve asked Gov. Asa Hutchinson if he’d join in. 

I’m surprised that Sens. Jason Rapert and Bart Hester aren’t already on board. This kind of showboating is right up their alley. Their arrival would cause some ayatollah boot quaking, I’m sure.
