We've got a freshman Democratic Congresswoman from Phoenix who just took her seat in Congress last January. And Republicans had better watch out for her, cause she's going places. I predict she'll serve her time in the House, then come back here and take John McCain's Senate seat when he comes up for re-election. I don't think McCain's 30 percent popularity rate is going to get any better; he's played RINO long enough and the conservatives are tired of his prima donna act.
As a conservative I oppose Kyrsten Sinema in every position she's taken. But I've watched her for years now and she is a very talented politician. She started out as a state rep here in Arizona, representing a minority district so amenable to liberal politicians. But I also saw her drive Republicans in the State House right up the wall with her probing questions on conservative legislation and she does it without the nastiness of a Pelosi or Wasserman Schwartz. And I also saw her abilities to work with Republicans on their issues in order to get them to support her with some of her own priorities.
Sinema was just elected to Congress this past November and I watched each and every one of her campaign debates, and I was shocked to see a rare talent emerge. She has the rare ability to turn her opponents anger back at them by responding with a focused and well thought out answer..and she dresses those responses with a charm and charisma you'll rarely see. I've been following politics for 50 years and the only two pols I saw who had it were Reagan and John Kennedy.
You blog readers from outside Arizona, don't think for a minute you too won't hear about Kyrsten Sinema; she's already begun appearing on Meet The Press on Sunday mornings and she's being given some impressive committee seats in Congress as well.
So look for her. She'll charm John McCain, then steal his Senate seat from underneath him. She'll charm all the Dems and just enough Republicans to win the Senate. And she's every bit as well spoken as Hillary Clinton without the snarl and without the nastiness so look for her on a larger national stage as well.
Gripes my ass to have to worry about someone like Kyrsten Sinema but I do. And mark my words fellow conservatives, she'll be throwing a little worry your way sometime in the future.
