47 Republican senators have signed an open letter to Iranian leaders. This is an act that is completely irresponsible, it undermines the president, and it undermines the office of the president.
And it is flat-out stupid. Do they think the Iranians are a bunch of raghead hicks with machine guns?
Do our illustrious Republican senators know that today’s Iranian cabinet has more members with Ph.D. degrees from U.S. universities than Barack Obama’s cabinet does? In fact, Iran has more holders of American Ph.D.s in its presidential cabinet than France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, or Spain—combined.
Do they really think that the American educated and trained political brain power of the Iranian leadership cannot see through this bluster?
I am embarrassed for our senate.
