What's wrong w/ Kyrstan Sinema?

Cruisin Loser

I've gotten the impression that Senator Sinema just a dumb self-absorbed brat, who craves attention more than anything else. She's not smart enough to support a consistent set of values and tries to pass off her brainless flitting from far-left bullshit to far-right bullshit as new-agey enlightenment.
Funny, that's exactly what I think of people who post on political threads in GA.

That is, other than to say take it to PA.

Take it to PA.

She may be the leading edge of a third party.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight! and the loser guy might actually be an honest businessman, who pays all his vendors/contractors, and loves his wives and children, even the ones he doesn't know about.

Sinema is a slippery thighed bat-shit crazy nut case who just picked the wrong party the first time around.
She and Lauren Boebert would make a great chocolate mousse wrestling tag team.

We need more Independents, actually on your voter resignation card, there shouldn't be a party listed. It would end Gerrymandering for one,

No it wouldn’t. People can easily discern political leaning from demographic data.
Maybe it would be a start?
and Then people would actually have to THINK before they vote, not just go down a list of R or D's
some democracies have more than 2 parties
Maybe then elected officials/voters could vote for the best policies, not being told as per their party
Having a third or fourth party would throw the data out the window?
but it would never happen, why, MONEY

That's pretty much California except for the presidential election which have party primaries; we have jungle primaries for everything else. Even then anyone can vote in the Democratic primary but only registered Republicans can vote in the Republican primary.

Since this happened Democrats have moved into supermajorities in the legislature and dominate the statewide races. Redistricting is handled by a nonpartisan (non-legislature) commission.

Or maybe when she got into the senate and saw bags of money being dragged down the halls of the senate she said, "My office is always open."

I think she had a pretty good idea of how much money she could vacuum being a Senator, which is why she went there. Kyrsten is all about Kyrsten.

She may have changed parties, but a leopard doesn't change it's spots

I think Brooks and Capehart were right - she smelled a primary challenge from Democrats and front-ran it. (https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/b...-senate-shakeups-and-brittney-griners-release)

"I think, as Lisa mentioned earlier in the program, it affects 2024 for her race back home. And that's what strikes me. It's sort of a bold move. Basically, I think, if you want one calculation, could it be this? That she thought she has no chance against Ruben Gallego in a Democratic primary.

So she goes to the Democratic Party, the national Democratic Party, and say: I'm going to run independent. I'm going to split the Democratic vote and you will get your Republican senator. So, you have got to do for me what you do for Angus King in Maine, independent Maine, and Bernie Sanders or Vermont. No run — don't run against me.

So it's basically holding the hostage — party hostage. But if there's anybody who could do it, it's her."

Is she that popular with Dems in AZ that she pull half? I see her dragging Repubs away from their party’s candidate.

People fret about Libertarians getting their paltry 2-3%. She'd probably do at least that well, just from name recognition.

I personally agree - i think she's as likely to pull from Republicans as Democrats. But the threat is there, nonetheless.

How she votes in the next year will tell us. If she keeps her word to caucus with Dems, that’s one thing. If she plays spoiler, she’s done.

I think she'll fall in line most of the time. Ultimately, she wants the "D" and wants the party money. She just doesn't want to get primaried from the left. She's kind of set up like Murkowski at this point.
