The choice, according to sellout Robert Robb, is “capable right or capable left”
There was a time when the local newspaper actually had an op-ed page with conservative views regularly expressed. Columnists Thomas Sowell and Michelle Malkin were among those who provided a solid voice of balance. Publisher Eugene Pulliam was a staunch conservative, as was longtime top editor, Frederic S. “Fritz” Marquardt.
Those days are long gone. The editorial pages are presided over by Phil Boas, who savaged his own father-in-law, former Sheriff Joe Arpaio out of office in favor of a wife-beating Democrat.
The best Arizona Republic readers have as a voice of opposition is Libertarian-minded Robert Robb. But he still has to earn his keep and rarely veers too far off the liberal path.
Today he proves his allegiance to those who sign his paycheck with an opinion piece titled, “Ariz. Has 2 good choices for senate.”
Robb, states the two, Republican Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema are models of Jon Kyl and Dennis DeConcini, respectively.
Then tossing integrity aside, after acknowledging her “radical past” in favor of toadyism, Robb actually describes Sinema using these words, “Her brand of cheerful politics would wear well in a chamber in which personal relationships matter more.”
Is this the example of cheerful politics he has in mind?
Sinema’s foul-mouthed deprecation of stay-at-home Moms was included in our July 2018 post, “Kyrsten Sinema’s devious metamorphosis — Political chameleon works to dupe voters.” With a crucial U.S. Senate election around the corner — early ballots will be mailed Oct. 10 and polls will be open Election Day Nov. 6, 2018 —we urge our readers to read the entire, fact filled exposé.
An atheist with Communist leanings who refused to take her oath of office on the Bible and an admitted bi-sexual, who was an early supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home as “leeches.” Her foul-mouthed comment was:
“These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Sinema now claims to embrace, she derided conservatives as “Neanderthals.”
Robb’s concept of “cheerfulness” doesn’t qualify as mainstream.
Don’r be fooled. On her worst day, Martha McSally would be preferable to Kyrsten Sinema on her best. The Primary is over and our choice is clear.
