This morning she announced that she is changing her political affiliation to Independent. This is the absolute worst time, at least from my political perspective, for her to make the move, just as the Dems get a true majority in the Senate.
But it is par for the course for a woman who only took and gave nothing back to the party, failing to support other Arizona Democrats and was always only thinking about herself and her pharma and equity capital buddies.
How would you like to be in a foxhole with a narcissist like this, who only thinks about her own narrow agenda and so casually thwarts the people who got her elected in the first place, Arizona Dems? Remember, she started out as the whacky Green Party bisexual with the fluorescent outfits, now she has no seeming ideology whatsoever except for personal self aggrandizement. One of my heroes was Abbie Hoffman. Hoffman often warned how easy it was for radicals to be co-opted when they got a sniff of cash. She is a poster child of the disease.
Sinema is trying to put this move in the best possible political light of course, trumpeting her non partisan street cred and her willingness to create legislation with those on the right. But she never wants to work with those on the left, she is like her compatriot Manchin, they are always forgotten.
“Last month, the voters of Arizona made their voices heard loud and clear — they want leaders who put the people of Arizona first. We need Senators who will put Arizonans ahead of big drug companies and Wall Street bankers.“Unfortunately Senator Sinema is once again putting her own interests ahead of getting things done for Arizonans." Rep. Ruben Gallego (D. Ariz)
The truth is, she has a 37% rating among Arizona Democrats. Gallego would have cleaned her clock in the next primary. Nothing pure about her motives, this move is pure political expediency. She is dreaming if she thinks the right wing in Arizona is going to back her up. I have never seen a politician so despised, across the board. Now, that takes talent!
It takes somebody with a personality to craft a centrist coalition. She has none. She is cold and aloof and completely beholden to no one except her big money backers. She has never shown any loyalty or accountability to the people that elected her. It appears from the numbers that Hispanic voters dislike her the most, why is that? But honestly, she fails to find a majority of admirers in any category, including women. She even is disliked by a majority of independents!
