Nontheist, Bisexual Candidate Wins Congressional Primary Race

Former State Senator Kyrsten Sinema has won the Democratic primary for Arizona’s 9th congressional district. Somehow, the same citizens who elected Joe Arpaio as their Sheriff have chosen an openly bisexual, nontheist woman to be the Democratic candidate from this newly created district in Maricopa County.

Is there no end to the contradictions this woman embodies??

Another surprising detail about Sinema? The left-leaning bisexual atheist/agnostic is a graduate of Mormon, ultra-conservative Brigham Young University.  Unconfirmed reports indicate Sinema may also be a unicorn, or possibly a leprechaun, because we’re pretty sure such a creature does not actually exist on Earth.

But perhaps her most confounding set of oxy-moronic character traits can be witnessed at right: Sinema is somehow both a politician and yet also attractive. In fact, she’s even kind of likeable-looking, which does not bode well for her chances of being elected to a Congress with only a 10% likeability rating.

Even more damning for Sinema’s election prospects, however, is that she appears to have reasonable policy positions. In 2012, she was featured in The New York Times as “one of the most dogged and articulate critics of Arizona’s anti-immigrant legislation. In a legislature gone wild, she was a rare voice of reason.” In 2006, Sinema sponsored a bill urging the adoption of the DREAM Act and  co-chaired Arizona Together, the statewide campaign that successfully defeated Proposition 107, which would have banned the recognition of same-sex marriage and civil unions in Arizona.

If elected, Sinema will be the first openly bisexual person ever to serve in Congress and only the second nontheist ever to do so. The newly created 9th District is not expected to lean heavily toward either Democrats or Republicans, so it may be a close race. She will face Paradise Valley Town Councilman Vernon Parker, who narrowly beat out six other Republicans in his party’s primary.

Since it’s going to be a close race, why not head over and donate to her campaign?

    I just donated to Sinema's campaign because of you. By the way you are my new hero…I formerly relied on the daily show when I felt overwhelmed by idiocy in practice. I still can't wait for the Skeptical Inquirer magazine to come to make me feel all is not lost. You write well, and feel like my counterpart (doppelganger?-not in the evil sense…oh maybe, yes). Weirdly, when I turned 18 ( a million years ago) I told my friends I was happy to finally be "a dolt" (most didn't get it). Thank you for your site and I will share share share.

      Oh wow, that's so awesome!!!! Good for you!! It looks like it will be a close race, so I'm sure your donation is appreciated.

      There is no higher compliment than a comparison to the Daily Show, so thank you for that. Made my day.

      And did you notice, we are dopplegangers — in name, anyway. I'm a Linda, too.

      Just added that last sentence in case there are other people who are inclined to donate. Thanks, L.

      Need verification: the real Drew would have come up with something wittier, I suspect. But maybe I think too highly of him.

        Definitely not the real Drew. He'd be classier than that, or at least use a pseudonym.

    I wish I could have voted for her, too. But I'm in Cali. So how did you vote for her in Seattle? Good thing you're remaining anonymous. You'd do HARD TIME wearing pink panties to model just for Sher'f Joe Arpaijo!
