“Tom Cotton is perfect,” an Arkansas lady confided to Jay Nordlinger when he traveled to the state. “No, he’s not,” responded Mrs. Cotton, mother of the congressman and candidate for United States Senate, when Jay repeated the story to her later. Chatting with Jay and Mona, Tom Cotton endorses his mother’s view. See what you think. He seems to have it all: Harvard, military career, solid conservative values, wholesome life, sense of humor, good looks. He shares his thoughts about the campaign against Mark Pryor, how to answer accusations that Republicans want to throw widows and orphans into the snow, and what Republicans should do with the filibuster if they’re fortunate enough to gain the majority.
After Cotton’s departure, Jay and Mona mark the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen massacre, chew over the election results in Europe, and agree that economics is key to maintaining our liberty.More
