AZ Republic’s Robb grovels, earns his pay on AZ Senate race

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.

    This info regarding our State Attorney General:

    (January Contreras, (D) candidate for A.G.
    you’ve got to be kidding)

    So many people from inside (and outside) the Beltway laughing their asses off at AZ.
    Sinema and McSally’s “personalities” are fodder for the jokesters.

    Integrity is a word that can’t be applied to the AZ Repukelick or any in it’s employ. Robert Robb is worthless as a “voice of reason.” I scan the paper at the office, where a copy is delivered and placed in the break room. Would never pay to be insulted.

    • MacBeth says:

      Don’t expect too much from Robert Robb and you’ll never be disappointed. He became a leftist changling long ago.

      Money talks and bulls**t walks.

    Below is what I wrote to Robb earlier re today’s op/ed on the AZ Senate race.

    Re: Sinema’s pragmatism?

    Let’s ask ourselves this: If Sinema was representing AZ in the Senate today, would she vote to confirm the highly qualified Brett Kavanaugh to the Big Court?

    Of course not. When D’s go to DC, they vote in lockstep with the party. Just like O’Halleran up here in CD1 who was for gun rights before he became a D and went to Washington. Now he’s against gun rights.

    Let’s not kid ourselves. Sinema is a pragmatic hard leftist lunging towards the middle to get elected. If she gets to DC as a Senator, she’ll be as hard left as Harris or Warren.

      Glad to read your response to Robert Robb. Your reply was more reasoned than his blather. He is proof positive of the old saying, “Some people will do anything for a buck.”

    McSally. BUMMER! I was for Ward but we got, yuck, HER, McS– that stinks…

    I’ll get a tetanus shot & vote for McS, but I ain’t happy about it.

    I gave up on the AZ Repuke a long time ago. Makes a good fire starter in my woodstove, but not good for much else. Don’t have a parakeet ;-)

    Even though McSally is the superior choice between the two candidates (Hold your nose, hold your nose and vote!), if elected she will prove the seemingly impossible truth that John McCain continues pulling the voting levers nowadays from the grave.

    • Frankly Speaking says:

      Like the undead vampire Dracula, John McCain continues to be an eerie presence within the Arizona political arena. He was creepy when he was alive. Now his presence is bone chilling. He has been worshiped for weeks despite all of his failings and lack of respect for Republican values. His lies (“build the danged fence!”) and hypocrisy were all whitewashed by the Arizona Republic. He was able to buy his way into two presidential bids, robbing us of more competent candidates. He refused to step down when diagnosed with a brain eroding malignancy, since he knew he’d be treated grander as an incumbent.

      Many of us were sick of him when he was alive. His death and ensuing week long numerous funerals and adulation have made him even more disgusting. The plan truth is, he was neither smart nor decent. He graduated at the bottom of his Annapolis Naval Academy class and was wretched to the families of Vietnam POWs and MIAs who pleaded with him for years to release the records of their loved ones. His response? He had them permanently sealed because they revealed the disturbing truth about him. The tortured hero mantra was his own carefully constructed story, not of others who knew better.

        When stating his lack of decency, you neglected to mention dumping his first loyal wife and their family for the much younger heiress Cindy Hensley. He and Cindy, who began their affair soon after meeting in Hawaii were planning their large, exclusive church wedding and elaborate festivities while he was not even divorced. He proposed to her while he was still married. They were married soon after the decree was finalized.
