Boop boop bee doop!

Ever since the 1988 Dukakis tank-driving campaign ad ushered in the modern era of media fuckery, all the way through to Nancy Pelosi’s fridge, the Democrats have been the Party Of Just Not Fucking Getting It. F’crissake, the woman who sang the Anthem at CPAC wasn’t as tone-deaf as the goddamn Democrats.

And so it was that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) gave us her own Marie Antoinette moment, live on C-SPAN, as she cast her “no” vote on the minimum wage raise in the current toothless COVID Relief Bill.

Have this woman’s staff and media people just once taken her aside and reminded her that C-SPAN telecasts live from the floor of the Senate, where the whole goddamn planet and their cats can see her feckless hijinks?

My guess is that people like Sen. Sinema are fully aware, but just don’t care — and that this moment is not just indicative of her own attitude, but that of the entire Democratic Party.
