You didn’t have to spend much time on social media this weekend to know that Kyrsten Sinema had hit her first big-league home run.
All you had to do was search “Kyrsten Sinema” on Twitter and then prepare to scroll and scroll and scroll. A social platform that daily devours politicians from head to hoof was throwing garlands of unbounded gratitude to Arizona’s senior senator.
Republicans were lining up to confess they’d been wrong about Sinema and that pink tutu and now owed her a second look. Some said she was better than recent GOP offerings, the McCains, the Romneys and the Bushes.
It was the end of an another week in which Americans screamed at each other, and Sinema was standing out because she had quietly worked across the aisle to try to solve one of the pressing problems in the country.
