Thu Jun 3, 2021, 11:49 AM

Sinema is not confused or misguided. What she's doing is deliberate and intentional.

She was screaming that at us yesterday while standing next to John Cornyn. There's no other way to see it.

She is never going to be persuaded.

She is never going to break the filibuster.

She is going to be responsible for us losing in 2022 and 2024 and voting rights being destroyed, and the Biden agenda being ground to an absolute stop.

She's not acting on some sort of misguided bipartisan principle. She knows exactly what she's doing and she's taking pleasure in it, and laughing about it behind closed doors with Mitch and Cornyn.

54. Fair enough!

How about...

Kyrsten is in a far more precarious position than Mark Kelly, and she's trying to hold the Arizona swing voters they both need to win again.

Here's the exit polling data that explains why KS can't vote like Kelly.

Among the base... They tied.

Kelly, 50% of women
Sinema, 51% of women

Kelly, 97% of Democrats
Sinema, 97% of Democrats

Kelly, 55% of college grads
Sinema, 56% of college grads

Among swing voters, Kelly had a 5-6 point advantage

Kelly, 55% of independent voters
Sinema, 50% of independent voters

Kelly, 69% of moderate voters
Sinema, 63% of moderate voters

Kelly, 47% of white men
Sinema, 42% of white men

It helps being a straight, white, military vet.

.

Now, since she's done well, she seems to have that Libertarian, I was able to succeed,so others should be able to as well. I'm sure she had assistance along the way, and was held back by the same GOP policies that impacted her childhood. She was the one in a thousand success story, yet appears blind to that fact.

I think that is where the posters above are getting this quote. She's talking about bipartisanship while standing next to one of the more biased RepuQs in the senate so the implication is that she is asking Democrats to change, not the RepuQs who keep moving the goalpost more and more to the right wing extremes.

Take it as Democrat bashing. I really don't have much opinion of Sinema, either good or bad. What I have seen of her does not impress me, but she is not from my state so my opinion will not have any effect on her future.

I'm stuck with DeSantis, Rubio, and Scott so I reserve my bashing for them.

57. Fair enough

Iím just sick of people reading far more sinister motivations. Sheís a moderate Democrat from a mostly red state with zero clue how to appear on the National stage. She sees herself as the spiritual heir to McCain and plays up her ďIím everyoneís SenatorĒ and ďthere needs to be compromiseĒ to a fault. And she manages to do it in the shittiest-looking way possible every time. But sheís not actively trying to undermine the Democrats, and if you look under the surface, itís apparent that her contrariness, while horrible looking, isnít costing any of the legislation. We canít prove it, but looking at her overall record she is never the deciding vote against Democrats. Itís all optics. And unfortunately sheís not good at optics.

Make no mistake, Iím seriously pissed about her no show last week, but it didnít sink the vote at all.

Money has figured out that ship has sailed and a better way to destroy Dems is to pay phony ass dem candidates to get within the party. The pay is great. She and Manchin have a nice little scan going on there. Remember, Machin was part of ALEC. ďCinemaĒ canít live on a measly ass Senate pay check. She canít even show up to do the job that she is paid to do. Too busy to vote. Too hard a job, for $170,000+ a year.

You raise some very interesting points, Bob.

Now, cue the "at least she's a Dem, because otherwise republicans would control the Senate now", crowd in 3.....2.....1.

It seems like they DO control the Senate now. Republicans find a way, even when there's more Ds than Rs, at least on paper.

Of her and Manchin flipping to republicans if we piss em off. Well, if we do not fix the voting rights by 2022 with a simple majority and at least stop the filibuster for that vote, having those 2 flip is the least of our problems. The GQP can throw out any and all seats picked up by Dems under new voting suppression laws, and they can have a super majority in both houses. Then, cue up Biden/Harrisís impeachment in 2022 and voting deemed useless forever. I want outrage from our elected Dems and a sense of urgency. Stop the bipartisan bullshit. How many times did Trump meet with RepuQís only to push his takeover? No Dems even allowed to Be in sessions.

25. Now I believe Howie Klein was right

On the estimable Nicole Sandler show, he said awhile back that Sinema was crazy--literally crazy--and you could see it in her eyes. I thought he was exaggerating or had some sort of bad history with her, but now I think he was simply speaking the truth.

Here's a recent take of his on Sinema:

[link:https://www.downwithtyranny.com/post/despite-mcconnell-manchin-sinema-biden-s-presidency-isn-t-doomed-yet|]

Subtle pressure and incentives could work on Manchin, a rational operator. The mentally unstable-- to put it very mildly-- Sinema is another matter altogether and no one has any idea how to move someone suffering from the complexes that move her, including a martyr complex and an unquenchable thirst for attention, even as the White House, according to the Washington Post, "is making it increasingly clear that time is running out to craft a bipartisan agreement on rebuilding the nationís infrastructure, taking a sharper tone that could soon clear Democrats to act on their own to achieve President Bidenís jobs ambitions but deny him the deal with Republicans he has actively sought for weeks. The urgent tone reflects the political choices confronting Biden, a would-be dealmaker, as liberals grow increasingly restless about delayed action on the presidentís sweeping jobs plan that is a centerpiece of the Democratic agenda."

Sure, someone can clearly see that someone is guilty and bring in a guilty vote to convict. But why is she so determined to scuttle infrastructure programs, voting rights, etc. by sticking with the filibuster that assures minority rule in perpetuity? As far as I can recall, I don't remember her hanging out with the rethugs before recently. What have they promised her? Or what do they have on her? Seriously, something's changed.

32. There's something strange about this undignified grasping for attention in an adult

Especially a U.S. Senator. I'm still not over her little dance and the "fuck off" ring.

She's only a bit older than me, and I know people like her in my generation. People who abjectly refuse to believe they've grown up or aged and behave accordingly. They still think they're snarky twenty-somethings where exquisite sassyness is cute.

She's not cute. But she thinks she is.

It's totally bizarre.

The trick to that personality is, they tend to get a little charge out of pissing people off. She will not respond to criticism. It gives her energy. She loves it. The attention, that, "You hate that I'm so awesome!" and laughs it all off.

Thank God things like, you know, voting rights aren't involved here. Otherwise this behavior would be worrying.

I don't know enough about Sinema's past positions to unequivocally state that she's not just a dumbass, clueless about the lockstep ruthlessness of the GOP, but I'm definitely leaning toward She's Doing It On Purpose.

53. "Sinema said she won't change."

ďIím just doing my thing,Ē she said. ďI know my thingís a little bit different than other people, but I donít think thereís anything wrong with that at all. And, you know what? I donít mind if someone people like it or donít like it. Thatís OK.

ďI donít really care. I donít really care,Ē she shook her head, laughing. ďI really donít care at all.Ē

The last thing Democrats need is someone like Sinema in a 50/50 senate. Arizona voters have demonstrated they can elect serious people. The woman needs to be primaried.

67. What makes you say that?

Just picking QAnon stupid du jour and accusing a Democrat of supporting them?

70. They are exactly the type of group that should have no place in a free and fair election

She's apparently cool with the filibuster being used to stop any voting rights bills, so you tell me? What's the deal? A simple Google search and it seems she is 100% silent on any of it. You'd think she'd be concerned. Clearly she's not. Guess it's Mark's problem for 2022.

Got any answers?

72. Can you call her office and ask what her opinion is of the Arizona audit.

Remind her all it takes for evil to win is for good people to do nothing. And she is doing absolutely nothing.

73. What exactly can a National Senator do to stop a state audit of a county?

Or do you not understand how separation of powers work?

74. I'm just curious of her opinion

God forbid she do something.

Look, have a great night. "sHe'S a shITty seNaTOr but SHe'S nOT qNon" is not really the defense you think it is.

75. You're the one who intimated it

If you canít argue her positions without making up facts then your arguments arenít as strong as you think she is.
Thereís plenty to criticize her for without saying ďHurr Durr she loves Cyber Ninjas!!!Ē
But itís easier to make up shit.

76. When you do jack shit, expect to get get jacked.

I get it, she doesn't want to upset the dozen or so Libertarian bitcoin neckbeard fanbois who vote for her by saying something vaguely "librul!" like maybe minorities should be allowed to vote.

77. So she's against minority voting now

Just canít stop making shit upÖ But Iím sure you knew she sponsored the voting rights bill. Someone so knowledgeable of her involvement in right wing conspiracies had to know that simple fact.

79. What I'm sure you know is that it will not pass as long as she maintains her stupid stance.

You might as well elect a "Don't blame me I voted for Kodos" bumper sticker.

64. In the 116th Congress she voted agains Trump approximately 75% of the time.

In the current congress she has voted with Biden on 100% of bills reaching the floor.
She has a lifetime 100% rating from NARAL and planned Parenthood, and a 0% rating from the Susan B. Anthony anti-choicers.

Does she piss me off at times? Yes.
Do I think she has her head up her ass vis-a-vis the filibuster? HELL yes!

Is she a Republican? Fuck no, and it's ridiculous to claim that she is.

80. Minority voters will not support her in 2024 if she doesn't protect voter rights

in AZ.

Maricopa County will abandon her.

81. This is why we should never elect Greens or other third Party candidates like Nina Turner.

as our nominee for anything...not even dog catcher. Greens, in particular, hate the Democratic Party and often take money from and collude with Republicans. Sinema was a Green before becoming a Democrat. Of course, we still need her for another couple of years. Perhaps she could face a primary. Although in general, I worry we could lose the seat if we primary her.
