9. Yup. Either Sinema or the ODIOUS McSally.....

Not a very hard decision.
But now, I have regrets. LOTS OF THEM.

17. Majority in name only...

If she continues to kowtow to Moscow Mitch instead of getting behind Biden's agenda...

3. She's been bought.

Some wealthy GOP donor(s) have made a very large deposit in her accounts for her support.

5. a bit from the OP article

Arizona 'Democrat' Kyrsten Sinema burns her voters back home, while D.C. Republicans cheer

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2021/5/13/2030311/-Sinema-is-a-darling-of-Republicans-but-voters-remain-unimpressed

Last month we checked in on Arizona’s two senators, and lo and behold, it turned out that freshman Sen. Mark Kelly was quite popular (48% favorable-41% unfavorable), while pain-in-the-butt Sen. Kyrsten Sinema was in the dumps (29-40). Her numbers had collapsed among Democrats and independents after her anti-$15-minimum wage efforts, while Republican voters weren’t much inclined to pick up the slack. It was a curious strategy for Sinema—acting like West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, despite representing a purple (and Joe Biden) state. At least Manchin has a plausible excuse: Donald Trump won his state by almost 40 points. Weeks later, Republicans are reacting in glee to Sinema’s continued efforts to stymie Joe Biden’s Democratic agenda. And voters in her state remain unimpressed.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is certainly thrilled with having Sinema as a valued ally, so much so that he’s spending money praising her efforts. And what she is enabling is the continued Republican-led partisan erosion of our cherished Democracy. Click on that link and go read that piece. Seriously. I’ll wait. In short, McConnell is working feverishly with his party to rewrite the nation’s election laws to subvert the right of people to vote, all for partisan gain because Republicans have given up pretending that this is a “center-right country.” They know it’s not, and they’re not bothering trying to move public opinion in their direction. That would require compromise and a step away from Donald Trump’s iron-grip control of a party he doesn’t even like. It’s much easier to systematically disenfranchise entire groups of people than it is to convince them to vote for Republicans. And Sinema is right there, happily enabling this travesty of democracy.



And it’s not just McConnell praising Sinema’s help. So is Karl Rove.



What is Sinema fighting for? Not for her voters in Arizona, where her favorabilities remain significantly underwater at 25-44, lower than her 29-40 ratings last time we checked in.



And if you’re wondering if Republicans in Arizona are rewarding her, well she’s gone from 17% favorable among them, to 18%. To be fair, her unfavorability rating among Republicans has declined, but let’s not kid ourselves into thinking that means they’ll vote for her. McConnell will happily praise her today, and then spend tens of millions attacking her when she faces reelection in 2024.



But ultimately, the dynamic to watch is Sinema’s relationship with Arizona Democrats, because at her current trajectory, she’s almost guaranteed to face a primary next time around.

7. IF the GQP have full control of the Senate and House in 2022.

I can see Pres. Biden being impeached by that insane lot, and his presidency rendered null and void. That WILL be the end of our Democracy only 2 years after we thought we'd saved it.

Pres. Biden won't get anything done. I hate to see him having meetings with GQP'ers now on the infrastructure bill. I hope he doesn't buckle, because he allows the infrastructure bill to be watered down just to get some support from GQP'ers. As Rachel said on her show tonight, why even bother passing an extremely watered down infrastructure bill if it accomplishes nothing, which is what the GQP wants NOTHING done to fix roads, bridges and more. Pres. Biden could then start losing his own supporters if he buckles even half-way to the far-right fascists that IS the GQP.

15. Nothing like a silly conspiracy theory to round out the day...

Republicans won’t get 2/3 of the Senate to Convict him. Biden will still be President.

6. She was one of the most conservative Dems in the house before

running for senator. Opposing Pelosi for speaker was a giant flaming flag; those people really didn't want a ferociously competent, implacable liberal leading the Democratic caucus. BUT, with the alternative Senator McSally I'd have voted for her also.

2024.

8. She was one of the most conservative Dems in the house before.

Thing is, if the GQP steals the House and Senate because Dems won't blow up the Filibuster or HR1 isn't passed, she won't be in there either in 2024. The GQP in Arizona will either resurrect that loon McSally who can go WAY further right than before or some other insurrectionist from Arizona who'll be HAPPY to go further right than either of those aforementioned dipsticks, somebody even further right than that un-American, insurrectionist, racist, gun-toting, knuckle-dragging Cave-woman Green from Georgia.

11. I'd like to read an article anyday now about what Kirsten and Joe M. WILL do

instead of they won't do.

Almost everyday, there are articles about what Joe Manchin and Kirsten Sinema won't do. I imagine they're for something?

13. Sinema wants a 60-vote threshold for all elements of the Senate's work, and wants to repeal

the 2 mini-nuke exceptions for SCOTUS and other POTUS nominees, plus she wants to end all reconciliation bills.

12. She's wants to be Manchin's running mate in his run for President, claiming they can draw GOP votes.

You think these two make sense??
