2024 Goat Rodeo Update: Unsaddle That Goat!

Tom Cotton Leaves The 2024 Goat Rodeo

I was not expecting this:

Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton has decided that he won’t run for president in 2024 — making him the first big-name Republican to step aside as former President Donald Trump and others make moves toward running.

The senator has been reaching out to donors, supporters and senior Republicans over the last few days to inform them of his plans, according to two people familiar with his deliberations. Cotton has attributed his decision to family concerns, saying that a national campaign would take him away from his two young sons, who are seven and five years old.

A-ha, that old canard. He’s doing it for the children, and in later years he will blame the kids: “I coulda been a contender!,” Cotton shouted as he was wheeled into the Shady Rest.

Also, too: I think it’s funny that he reached this decision AFTER talking to donors, and not talking to his family.

    Found this quote, “Based on under-the-breath whispers we were hearing from Republicans at the time, the piece detailed how Cotton’s wooden, academic persona was leaving some observers uninspired and hamstringing his efforts to bag a Senate seat in swiftly reddening Arkansas.”

  2. Or the bobble-headed slapdick (HT Charlie Pierce) figured that openly advocating for martial law was still a step too far for abobble-headed slapdick to get away with and win.

    Who could possibly had known that Tom Cotton was made of polyester.

    Just as well. “They” would have stolen his landslide win anyway. And what’s with the narrow pinhead look? Not much between the ears, I fear.

    we’ll see. considering how much he adheres to lies it’d be no surprise if he has some epiphany, claiming ‘god has told him’ to run.
