“At least since the rise of a libertarian wing of the Republican Party, the GOP has at least two paths when it comes to foreign policy, the war on terror, and civil liberties.

Or it can continue to lay in with characters such as Mitch McConnell, whose devotion to anything other than his own power to swing deals to his constituents is unclear, and Tom Cotton, whose commitment to a national security state and bellicose foreign policy seems like a fan fiction version of Dr. Strangelove.”
