Manchin and Sinema join the "destroy democracy" BFF club ... Sez Social
Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are in party purgatory. Both unicorns - Democratic senators from traditionally dark red states - they spend their days in metaphor hell dodging bullets, walking tightropes, cutting the baby in half (you get it) in appeasement gymnastics that make Neville Chamberlain look like a a rank amateur.
Both senators are taking a social beating for their recent opposition to voting reforms and for dodging the vote on creating a bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6th shit show, sorry, make that pacifist visitor day at the Capitol according to small cadre of GOP'ers who also deny the sun comes up in the morning.
Manchin are Sinema are pulling 22% and 21% positives, respectively, on Twitter with the lion's share of vitriol for Manchin pointed at his opposition to the For the People Act, and for Sinema conveniently skipping town for the Senate vote on the Jan 6th commission. As usual, social is not shy about its choice of descriptors calling Sinema a coward and it being "absolutely stunning" she is not protecting the county, while Manchin gets the destroying democracy award.
These numbers put the unicorn senators in odd company with the likes of Moscow Mitch, Lyin Ted and Spineless Graham, who are pulling 17%, 18% and 18% positives, respectively - click above to see their results. Nice company to keep for Democrats.
