The big news is that Sen. Krysten Sinema has jumped from the Democratic Party to being an independent and that means… Joe Manchin is back to being the king maker in the Senate.
Anyway, here’s Sinema’s announcement:
Shorter version: “It’s all about me, Me, ME!”
Of course this means that Rep. Ruben Gallego’s primary challenge to Sinema is now a straight-forward run for the Democratic nomination, but it also means that Sinema will be a spoiler in the general election, and it will benefit whoever is the Republican candidate. It’s like a dead-man switch. I bet Kari Lake is already on it.
I’m looking forward to hearing from some of our Scissorheads currently residing in The Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan. I’m actually not sure this changes much of anything on the sand: if the Terrible Sand People already hated her, they probably hate her more.
