Kirsten Sinema's very own thread

Post by Anaxagoras » Tue Jan 08, 2019 12:05 pm

I don't know if this thread will get as much attention as the other one, but why not?

It seems that she is unique in this current congress in at least one particular way.

News from congress is coming to resemble celebrity gossip more than anything else.

I wonder if anything of substance is not being reported because it's too "boring". :|

It does seem that way. Like Taylor Swift fans feuding with Katy Perry fans.

I have no idea what they're "feuding" about or even if they're feuding at all.
Maybe it's just a rumor some tabloid made up to sell newspapers or get clicks. And either way, I don't even want to know, but it's hard to avoid seeing headlines about it if you are a news consumer.

But the interesting thing I noticed about her is that she's "out", more or less, not just about being bisexual but about not having a religion. By "out" I mean that she took her oath of office not on a bible or other holy book. The only one in the current congress apparently. And there are more openly gay members of congress these days than openly non-religious.

I'm fine with her swearing in on a law book. It was better than Cortez swearing in on "The Dummies Guide to Marx".

The difference between Sinema and Ocasio-Cortez is that I forgot Kirsten Sinema even existed until I saw this thread. Ocasio-Cortez...Facebook, The Media, people in general won’t let me.

Of course, if I were an alien who knew nothing about Earth's systems of government and I only had TV and radio News to go by, I would conclude that AOC and Trump were the only two political figures in the US.
