Wait, do I like Mitt Romney now? OK, maybe not, but he became just a bit more likable today after he teamed up with Kyrsten Sinema to troll for Halloween. Dressed as Ted Lasso, Romney visited Sinema in the pinkest office on the planet to present her with cookies.
Here’s what that looked like, and while it’s funny, I think it tells us something about Sinema’s relationship with the far-left as well.

This happened while the White House and Nancy Pelosi are pushing hard to pass the infrastructure bill today. Meanwhile, progressives, such as Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush, have already expressed their disapproval, saying they will vote no.
But what I like about Sinema teaming up with Mitt Romney here is just how much of a finger in the eye it represents to the far-left. She has been harassed for months now, because she won’t just go along to get along with the radicals in her party. Instead of backing down or sinking into the background, Sinema goes out of her way to tweak those that despise her. There’s something respectable — and hilarious — about that.
I won’t post the replies to Sinema’s stunt, but some of them are vicious, with the general theme being that she’s a shill for special interests. You know, because there’s no lobbying effort on behalf of “climate change,” and progressive members would never accept “dark money.” And I have a bridge to sell, if anyone is interested.
Anyway, even though Romney is hardly loved by most on the right, it’s refreshing to see things not be so serious all the time. Two senators who disagree having a good time is certainly better for society than constantly being at each other’s throats. Your mileage may vary.
