Our boy Tom Cotton embarrasses us again.

Sen. Tom Cotton has said that he will not vote to confirm Susan Rice to any position in the Biden administration because she is the "Typhoid Mary of the Obama administration foreign policy." I am slightly unclear whether he means that no one who was in the Obama administration is eligible or if he's simply saying we ain't having no black woman in the administration.

Either way, Arkansas has a lot to be embarrassed about lately but will no Democrat deliver us from this evil Trumper?

If President Biden appointed me a US Attorney (I know, God forbid),

I would give serious consideration to asking a grand jury to indict by then former Post Master General DeJoy under 18 U.S.C. 1703:

"Whoever, being a Postal Service officer or employee, unlawfully secretes ... detains, (or) delays ... any ... mail entrusted to him ... which was intended to be conveyed by mail ... shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years or both." (Emphasis added.)

18 U.S.C 1701 appears to reduce the potential prison sentence to six months but I could live with that.

This would be in addition to any penalty imposed by Judge Sullivan for criminal contempt by defying his order.

There might be an argument that as Post Master General all the delayed ballots were not "entrusted to him" but I'd make some federal judge dismiss the indictment.

It's 6:14 CST - I'm still getting Democratic fund raising texts.

Please tell me it's going to stop soon.
