So what about a recall vote? 2024 is too late.

Pretty sure you can't recall a US Senator. Or Representative, for that matter.

By 2024 she will have done all the damage that conservatives want done and will be ready to quit and become a well paid lobbyist. Organize a recall vote already if AZ allows that sort of thing.

That's good news.  It's too bad that will be two years too late.

Uhm....would a Democratic candidate that pledged to remove the filibuster win in Arizona?
 
2021-07-20 11:03:52 PM  
Look. She's there for a while longer.

There's an election in 2022. With a potentially good map for Democrats.

/of course who knows what happens with the House of course

Yeah...  there really isn't any mechanisms to do that at federal level.  Some states have them, but they haven't been tested in court.

Yes, provided the elections are secure.  It's time to start logging every bit processed on those machines.

Both her and Manchin are there until 2024. That's why they're the villains right now. They're not in any danger. Ditto for Chris Coons.

You know who is up for re-election?

Patty Murray who couldn't bother to show up for the vote to create the Insurrection Special Council.

Patrick Lehey who voted to renew the PATRIOT Act in 2020.

Chuck Schumer who runs the whole Senate.

Let's put pressure on them and stop acting like Manchin and Sinema are acting out alone.

AOC should move to Phoenix and run. Let's prove to everyone how running a firebrand will work as a test-case for a nationwide revolution.

Hard for third way Democrats to say there isn't enough support if she could win in farming Arizona.

And yet, easy for leftists to dismiss it as an exception if she lost Arizona, which she would.

One can. Capture is the hard part, because you really need a live one.
I have never eaten dead senator and have no desire to start .

The democratic senators from places like Georgia will be voter suppressed out of office by then and the democrats will go back to a senate minority, where McConnell will resume obstructing every bit of the democratic agenda until the similarly suppressed 2024 election where the republicans will take back the white house and put the final touches on their minority rule agenda. I have yet to hear a single strategy that will challenge actually this, just a bunch of Manchin fellating, and democratic assurances that this won't happen.
 
2021-07-20 11:22:15 PM  
2022 is going to see QOP election election shenanigans never seen before. GA legislators have already said they will discount the will of the voters. Other red states teetering blue will likely do the same.

If this happens Pelosi and Schumer better put their big people pants on and have a discussion about swearing in fraudulently "elected" people.

If it slides we are absolutely done as a united country.

I do not think I have seen a post on fark which is positive about Manchin or Sinema wrt to recent events. None.

A few people say 'Manchin is shiat but the shiathole people where he comes from wont elect a real dem so he is better than republican' which is a long long way from fellating the old crooked bastard. May he rot.

Let's hear it. Because the US Constitution says it can't be done.

This would be awesome. If we could get rid of the filibuster in 2024, just think of all the legislation President DeSantis can veto.

I'll try.

When push comes to shove, Manchin will do the right thing after extracting his 30 pieces of silver for his state.

/and I don't know if he's wrong to do that
 
2021-07-20 11:42:17 PM  
She doesn't care. She was a Trojan horse to begin with.

The Democratic party - much like police departments. the military, student organizations, and multiple media outlets  - have been infiltrated by conservative operatives in order to either bring the organizations down, or to bring them into alignment with the money men, which includes anyone bribed, blackmailed, or otherwise coerced into attacking the United States and its allies.

I wasn't talking about Fark. Clearly you're not gonna hear much praise for a DINO in the Fark comments section. MSM otoh has had so much fun writing about Manchin's push for bipartisan legislation and framing it as though he's some kind of moderate statesman rather than a disingenuous grifter.

I think you missed the joke. Think of another meaning for 'recall'.

There are three in the "Republicans pulling a Lucy to the Democrat's Charlie Brown" thread, and it's only 80ish comments long.

Replace Sinema with someone more pliant and another Democratic Senator would suddenly develop a lifelong, but hitherto never publicly voiced, belief in the importance of the filibuster.

It's a game, and the Democratic Party is paid to put up a good game without ever actually fixing anything.
 
2021-07-21 12:00:11 AM

If Arizona had been a state in the 1850s it would have wholeheartedly dedicated itself to the Confederacy and to slavery not only of African kidnapees but of every indiginous and and non-anglo in its borders.

Arizona was the second-to-last US state (after South Confederina) to recognize MLK day.

Don't expect much from Arizona.  I've lived there.  It's 68% miserable desolate rural sh*thole complemented by wintering over-wealthed underworked air-conditioned entitled snowbirds from the most racist northern climes.

Beautiful scenery, though.

She was better than McSally, but her time in Congress revealed that her liberalism was just to get elected.  The only one who kept bringing up Sinema's pre-Congress advocacy during the campaign was McSally herself, because Sinema certainly wouldn't have been able to do it.

And? So what?

Seriously, so what?

What the hell is the significance of that statement?
 
2021-07-21 12:46:04 AM  
Let me add, one can postulate about "what if". "What if" only the most liberal democrats were voting?
"What if" only the most conservative republicans were voting? "what if" bla bla bla!

Meanwhile, in a general election, there's a candidate that first maneuvered their way through the local primary and subsequently the general election. There's a certain significance to that which a rather childish block of voters has trouble grasping.

Verruca Salt will now object to not getting it now.

The significance is that if she doesn't stop sucking off McConnell she's going to lose her job in 2024.
