Sinema Explains Absence

The famous Eff-off Sen. Sinema and her eff-off ring

The terrible senator representing the terrible sand people of the terrible sand kingdom of Arizonastan, Kyrsten Sinema told AZCentral that she missed a procedural vote on a bill to establish a commission to study the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection because: she had a “family matter.”

No one piled on Sen. Patty Murray when she missed the same vote because of urgent family matters, and what the hell, it’s a get out jail free pass, so why the eff not? Amirite?

Per Politico/Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie, the hallway gossip monitors have her batting average:

The last time Sinema’s vote skipping made news was in March 2019, when she missed a string of votes on judges and the EPA chief to compete in an Iron Man competition in New Zealand. According to ProPublica, Sinema missed 8.4% of votes in the last Congress, ranking her as the 15th-most absent member of the Senate. So far this Congress, she’s missed only four votes.

I’m guessing that family-free Sinema, Arizonastan’s cave fish white replacement for mavericky cave fish white Grandpa Walnuts, has a perfectly reasonable excuse that she will reveal as soon as she thinks of one.

    Patty Murray has still not given any explanation other than the vague “urgent family matters.” She really should say something.

      If she didn’t get home in time, she would miss the bbq. I’ve been checking to see if she was spotted anywhere over the weekend; her office is keeping her whereabouts quite well hidden.

    The Arizona Democrat said she continues to support the filibuster. Rather than abolish the filibuster, the better way to fix the Senate would be to “change your behavior” and work in a bipartisan way, Sinema said.

    Damstraight I’m going to change my behavior Curtsey, I’m gonna work hard to elect your primary opponent.

    Maybe you should be asking Cornyn why HE doesn’t change his treasonours behavior, covering for his seditious GQP colleagues.

    That “eff-off” ring is set so that she’s telling herself to eff-off.
    Seems about right.

    I just emailed Curtsy Kyrsten. Told her I’d be voting for a Democrat in 2024 so I won’t be voting for her.

    Bish just isn’t into democracy and is exploring her fascist inclinations, so that’s probably going to work out just fine.

    Why is it that when people get elected to the antiquated senate, they find outlandish ways to engage in really bad theatrics and other means of stale comedy routines along with bad excuses instead of actually introducing and voting on meaningful legislation?
