Yes she not only has to worry about the Kooks on the  Right but the  kooks on the  left also.  She is not a Republican she does not place party above all else; if the progressive keep this up AZ will once again have 2 GOP Senators.

If it is true that she's having no meetings with her constituents - what the f$ck does she expect.  This lady was very respectful and polite.

Be nice to the people trying to talk to you - they may be your replacement.

so she's walking with fellow senator Tim Scott (R-SC), in public in an airport, when a woman who looks to be Cinemascope's peer (in age, race, height, gender, hygiene and clothing/makeup, non-accented-spoken-english, ect.) politely asks to speak to her as her constituent, and Cinemark's only reactions is to say to Scott "I'm SO sorry about this!"

she doesn't even tilt her head towards the woman talking to her. let alone make eye contact. and she apologizes to her fellow Public Servant that a *gasp* member of the public might try to bother them, out in public! *gasp*

i find Kyrsten Cinematronic more and more repentant and disgusting every single time i'm forced to discuss her existence. she's a terrible sort of human being.

you arizona farkers better join up and vote her out ASAP

-more repellent- that was supposed to say she's repellent.

although seeing her get all repentant about farking over the poor and working for the republicans would be nice....

I'm willing to bet her votes are now coming with a "and you'd better make sure the DSCC 100% backs my re-election or I'm not voting for anything you want to pass"

That means if you want her out, you have to have a celebrity that's really popular run against her in the primary. Even then... It's incredibly rare to unseat someone who has support of the party.

My former boss is a politician and was always astounded when other elected officials acted ornery in public.  THEY VOTE FOR (OR AGAINST) YOU, was the mantra.  And that was in the days before everyone had a television studio in their hands.

I think I'll stick with the other theory: That she knows she will be well taken care of with a cushy "job" somewhere once she leaves the Senate.
 
2021-10-26 1:13:24 PM  
I have the feeling she's moved on into the "let's see how much cash I can get before my term ends" mode, because she's probably guessed by now she's not getting re-elected.
 
2021-10-26 1:13:31 PM

Go on, tell me she's not secretly a Republican.

Biden should find out who's hiring her and work to eliminate that company.

I'm pretty sure Sinema is just holding out for a lobbying job at this point. It doesn't seem like she wants to be there or have any opinion over what legislation she actually wants to work on.

I don't think that was the point.

Progressive putting pressure on Sinema will cause moderate voters to go red next time. There is another piece in today's paper saying that exact thing. That having a candidate that was perceived as too liberal is what got us Ducey.

She is awful. And apparently insane.

The obvious explanation for her actions is that she is being bribed with campaign funds. But...she almost certainly isn't going to be re-elected. Is she just trying to cash out really quickly, and doesn't care about getting re-elected? That would make sense, if she had any kind of power and could really rake in the bribes. But she doesn't have much power.

It's weird. She's crazy.

Nothing about it. At all. Read the bio. They're so conflicted, I thought it might be Sinema herself.

What's weird is hearing Biden praise her for her intelligence.

Which suggests evil.
 
2021-10-26 1:21:12 PM  
Maybe constituents can protest outside where ever she goes. She could spend the rest of her career apologizing for all the unruly folks just asking to have their voices heard by their so-called elected representative? Is that really too much to ask? Or do you have to have wads of secret donation cash, and a diamond shiatting dog for her?

As we all know, the progs keep screwing things up and that's why Democrats couldn't retake the Presidency & Senate.
 
2021-10-26 1:24:41 PM  
She is either so clueless to see how bad the optics of showing such disdain to her constituents is or she thinks she is de-facto royalty, senator for life, and does not have to care about what the peons think.

Why would any Democrat be talking with any Republican given Republicans' current intransigence? Was she getting advice on how to say no to everything?

AdmirableSnackbar: Gin Buddy: Progressive putting pressure on Sinema will cause moderate voters to go red next time


I know you refuse to acknowledge any reality that is contrary to all of your hopes and dreams, but this is from today:

Of late, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona has come under heavy fire for her unwillingness to support the far-left element of her Democratic Party. Sinema is politically astute, and she recognizes that Arizona is a long way from Massachusetts and New York, both geographically and politically.

Sinema also is well aware that there is nothing that a politician can do for her constituents if she fails to get elected. In 2018, Arizona television viewers were blitzed with announcements that David Garcia was 'too liberal for Arizona.' That message resonated with a large proportion of the state's electorate, and the result was that we were stuck with four more years of Gov. Doug Ducey as this state's chief executive officer.

Sinema's centrist posture will ensure that in 2024 she won't be accused of what sank Garcia's campaign. She knows what she's doing, and I commend her for that.


When AZ elects a GOP Moderate to replace her you can finally stop crying about the Dems getting nothing done because the Republicans will have the majority. Again.

Same horseshiat talking point since 1972.

"Looking at 1968, it would seem the lesson that history has for us is that Democrats need to be really careful about assuming that the establishment candidate is the key to electoral victory. But what about 1972? Isn't the lesson of that election that Democrats suffer their most devastating losses when they run candidates who speak to the party's progressive base.

Actually, no. The lesson of 1972 is something quite different. To begin with, McGovern was not a particularly strong candidate. He had secured the nomination with only a quarter of the primary votes.  The unions refused to work for him. And he ran a poor campaign. Even more significant, he was going up against a sitting president, Richard Nixon, who had brought troop levels in Vietnam down from almost half a million to around 30,000, had eased Cold War tensions by going to China and had stabilized the economy, at least temporarily, by implementing wage and price controls. Nixon would have been tough to beat under any circumstances, and McGovern was not the candidate to do it.

But the real lesson that McGovern's defeat teaches us is not the dangers of progressivism so much as the dangers of being out of step with the electorate. Every few decades, the existing political order is completely overturned and in the upheaval a new order emerges.  This happened in the 1930s, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt replaced what has been called the 'Republican Ascendancy' with his New Deal Coalition. It happened again in the late 1960s and early 1970s when the rise of the right replaced the liberalism of the New Deal.

We are due for another upheaval and there are indications that we are actually in the middle of one right now. If that is the case, then what the election of 1972 teaches us is not that McGovern was too liberal for voters but that he was too out of step. He was trying to run as a '60s liberal when the electorate had moved well beyond the '60s, just as Clinton is running as a '90s triangulating liberal when voters are hungry for change.

History has some important lessons to teach.  They are just not the one that pundits and establishment politicians are claiming."

If her plan was to be a Senator for a while then jump into a cushy million dollar lobbying gig, she's farking that all up.  She won't get a second term and she doesn't have the juice from this first dingbat term to get even a K Street interview.  As a lobbyist, Republicans wouldn't care about her and she'd be persona non grata to Dems.
