A Major Blow to the Totalitarians


Friends, Senator Krysten Sinema may answer "All of the Above" on the important question of which gender lights her proverbial fire, but on the question of whether she supports ending the filibuster she's got a much narrower view.  She says, "Ain't gonna happen."  What this means is that, with Joe Manchin, Krysten Sinema, and Joe Biden all opposed to ending the filibuster, it stays...and with it Republicans' ability to block major legislation in the Senate.  Now, you might ask, what took Sinema so long?  Presumably, she held her finger up to the wind and gauged its general direction and velocity.  What she discovered is that America, and Arizona, aren't itching for a left-wing takeover.  They're moderate, middle-of-the-road, purple, and pragmatic.  Ramming progressive changes through Congress, come hell or high water, isn't what Sinema showed up in Washington to do.  She and I probably wouldn't agree on much else, but we agree of this.  I say: bravo! 


  1. Dr. Daddy from Jack: Once again the real America asserts itself! West Virginia and Arizona are yet allegiant.

  2. "Dr. Daddy", huh? That's a new one. Ha ha.

    Both Manchin and Sinema are up for reelection in 2024. Methinks they see the writing on the wall!

  3. Dr. Waddyfrom Jack: New tablet same old adversarial relationship with tthe accursed thing.
