While we're all distracted by cheeto mussolini,

https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/politics/a32973114/tom-cotton-dc-state-speech/




his clones keep working:

Tom Cotton, the "bobble-throated slapdick from Arkansas" said,
"Yes, Wyoming is smaller than Washington by population, but it has three times as many workers in mining, logging and construction, and ten times as many workers in manufacturing. In other words, Wyoming is a well-rounded working-class state. A new state of Washington would not be...What vital industries would the new state of Washington represent? Lobbying? Bureaucracy? Give me a break. By far, the largest group of workers in the city are bureaucrats and other white-collar professionals. This state would be nothing more than an appendage of the federal government."



What the fck is this? I mean, besides the obvious dogwhistles that can be heard beyond the orbit of Neptune. Miners and loggers and hardhats apparently count for more as “workers” than do street-cleaners, and hotel maids, and cops, and cabbies, and sanitation workers, and bodega clerks who make Washington a better place for Tom Cotton to live than back home in Bugtussle is.

Hey, Lincoln Project. I got your next assignment right here.



Emphasis mine.

1. I'm surprised Cotton didn't use the 3/5 argument in support of his antebellum views

of congressional apportionment.

3. Such an ad would only help him in his senate election in Wyoming

Protests against him might be more useful.

8. Late entry into the "Senatorial Dumbass Derby". Cotton's in competition

with Sen. Cassidy of LA and Sen. "Clueless" Tillis of NC.

On your marks guys

The prize: A miniaturized outhouse.
