The surly Sand Lizard, Sen. Tom Cotton, slithered down for some friendly airtime with his mouthpiece — conservative talker Hugh Hewitt — and demonstrated his hypocrisy again.
Chris Hayes summarized on Twitter:
This doesn’t begin to recount of all of Cotton’s obstruction of Obama administration actions, but denying a wholly qualified diplomatic appointment (who was dying of cancer) because Cassandra Butts was a personal friend of the president was probably the most odious. He also put a single-handed block on appointments to the federal court of claims, most likely to help some lawyer friends. There he blocked appointments, including a groundbreaking minority appointee, for two years despite a shortage of manpower on the court.
Good when he did it. Bad when Democrats do it. Meanest man in America.
