Kyrsten Sinema Becomes First Openly Bisexual Member of Congress
ABC news ^ | 12 Nov 2012 | Alyssa Newcomb

Posted on 11/12/2012 7:09:20 PM PST by smokingfrog

After a hard-fought race in a newly formed Arizona congressional district, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner today, becoming the first openly bisexual member of Congress.

Sinema, a former state senator, joins at least five openly gay Democrats who were elected to House seats, and Tammy Baldwin, who became the first openly gay candidate elected to the Senate.

When asked by ABCNews.com how it felt to be the first openly bisexual member of Congress, Sinema said, “We’ve made history, and we’re proud of that, but what I am interested in is making history by making things better for the people of Arizona’s 9th Congressional District.”

Sinema, 36, had a razor-thin lead on Election Night against her opponent, Tea Party candidate Vernon Parker, but she ultimately pulled ahead, finishing with a 6,000-vote edge over the Republican, the Associated Press reported today.

I think she should go all the way and become a trisexual.

As in, if it’s sexual, she’ll try it?

Dick Martin of Laugh-In claimed to a trisexual...he said he'd "try anything".

No male would be desperate enough to want to be within 50 feet of that whore so “bi” is clearly a lie.

Women can get away with calling themselves “bisexual”, with guys, well it’s like The Diceman said, “You either do or you don’t, there is no in-between.”

Good grief, not much of a poker face there, Janet.

Is it something of a trend for elderly mannish lesbians to get their photos taken looking like a dog with a porkchop alongside buxom younger women?

Just damn!

This filthy Marxist America-Hater is not only an open lesbian, but an avowed communist.

My AZ district went for a strong conservative, but I still cringe that other districts in my state would put someone to the left of Obama into the House.

JUST DAMN!

“bisexual” = no desire to control her desire.

Disgusting.

Finally, a chance for some real bipartisanship, or is that bi-partnership.

I hope that someday in America, openly conservative members of congress will receive the same level of acceptance and tolerance as the openly gay, openly bisexual, openly trisexual, and openly transgendered members.

Pretty pathetic when the major element in your life that identifies who you are is a baloney smoker or a carpet muncher. Or both.

She is also a self-described socialist and has connections to the Communist Party, and is known for her tirade attacking stay at home mothers. And they elected her anyway.

I don’t understand it. The “independent” redistricting commission (cough), redrew the districts to be “dem” friendly.

The “independent” on the commission is married to a Dem-party head. Which way do you think she leaned?

Right. These so-called “non partisan” commissions often put liberal “independents” on board to give the Dems a majority. If there are going to be commissions they should be bi-partisan to where this little trick cannot be played.

The anti-Sinema campaign material made it clear that Sinema was opposed to normal behavior. She described stay-at-home moms as “leeches” on society.

Describing Arizona as “under-taxed”, state senator Sinema advocated increasing the sales tax, instituting a state property tax, and taxing plastic and paper bags at 25 cents and 15 cents respectively. Just as she never met a gender she didn’t like, she never met a tax she didn’t like.

Sadly, I live in her congressional district.

I’m 1/2 mile away. Wendy Rogers did a great job working (after she came in either 2nd or 3rd) in the primary. What Vernon did to campaign, I’m not sure. Sepulvada, I’m not sure if he supported Parker in the General.

bisexual member of Congress, Sinema said, “We’ve made history, and we’re proud of that,
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Other than being somewhat of a ‘deviate’ what else has she accomplished in life and what is to be ‘proud’ of?

I guess the only personal accomplishment one needs today is do something that is considered ‘different’ by the majority of folks.

Go figure...
