I’m not going to go as far as some who have said that Sinema has “toxic white lady energy” or hinted that she’s a Green Party double agent bent on wreaking Jill Stein-style havoc on the Democratic party. Instead, she’s an opportunist who blows with the wind and only cares about being reelected.
I stand by the last sentence, but I’m less sure about the toxic white lady stuff after this:
For Democrats hoping @SenatorSinema will change her mind on filibuster, I just asked and got this:
GH: Senator, what do you say to Democrats who are disappointed by your op-ed about the filibuster, and feeling like maybe they could still change your mind?

Who the hell is she? The Wicked Witch of the West?
Gridlock isn’t funny, Senator.
Remember the thumbs down after she voted against the minimum wage hike?
I didn’t think much of it at the time, but it was a tacky punk ass move.
Ready for more movie jokes about the snickering Sinematic senator?
The post title is inspired by the tag line on the posters for Ninotchka: Garbo Laughs.
Kyrsten Sinema is certainly no Greta Garbo and yesterday’s vote wasn’t as funny as Ninotchka. Now that I think of it, the Garbo movie that fits Sinema is Two-Faced Woman. Like the Senator’s filibuster act, it was a flop. Thumbs down.
All I’ve got for a last word are these posters:
It’s last word movie trivia time: Garbo’s leading man in the above movies, Melvyn Douglas, was an ardent liberal who was married to Congresswoman Helen Gahagan Douglas. She was best known for losing a senate race to one future president-Nixon-and having an affair with another, Lyndon Johnson. That’s all she wrote.
