The poor, poor, foolish little girl. Whatever is she thinking? These words are directed toward No-party-affiliation Senator Kyrsten Sinema. This pink-cheeked lass, this damsel in perpetual distress, has never been known to make good decisions.
But if this latest reporting is to be believed, Sinema’s decision skills are heading to the basement. According to reports, Sinema wants to run again and thinks she can win but thinks Republicans especially will vote for her in big numbers.
Ah, foolish girl, foolish girl. Has nobody close to you had the courage to tell you the truth? “Kyrsten’s path to victory.” This is the title of a mysterious document that’s been floating around. In said document, Sinema outlines what she thinks is a strategy. How Sinema thinks she can win:
10 to 20 percent of Democrats.
60 to 70 percent of independents.
25 to 35 percent of Republicans.
Lots to unpack here, and none of the luggage holds good news for Sinema. Let’s start with Democrats. Sinema is never going to get 10 to 20 percent of Dems. Perhaps five percent — maybe. But no more; if she doesn’t know that, someone needs to tell her.
Rapunzel must also get out of her tower and look at the independents. Sixty to seventy percent? That amount of independents will not rescue the oblivious princess, and if she seriously thinks she’s got this group in a landslide, she’s out of her ever-lovin mind.
Now let’s look at Republicans, Thirty-five percent? Never. It stands to reason a republican loon will be on that ballot, and THAT is who will get the majority of Republicans.
Sinema is blissfully ignoring all of the data that, for months now, has told us she has virtually no chance in a general election.
Perhaps the foolish little thing believes because she wants to. She may be that clueless. Does she have not a clue how much her very name is disliked in the Grand Canyon state? Does she not see the scorn in the eyes of the people?
Fools will be fools, and denial will be denial, but this does not sound like a plan. What it DOES sound like are the last gasps of a disjointed and sloppy campaign for a candidate with no core beliefs, no values, and no opinions on anything.
Sinema sits in her metaphorical ivory tower, her high horse, hidden in her thick denial. The fact that THIS is a strategy she could believe, shows the dangers of Capitol Hill and politics when one opens themselves to hubris and arrogance.
Rubin Gallego will win this race. He will make Sinema’s campaign disappear into a swirl of pink-tinged puff of denial and he will win the seat of Arizona and become Arizona’s next Senator. And the foolish little girl? She will pick herself up, lolly-pops and all, and move on.
