Kyrsten Sinema's attention-getting antics struck again yesterday when she wore a denim vest to preside over the U.S. Senate.
The reaction was about as you'd expect, appalled from most people, which seems to have been Sinema's aim, and nary a peep from Republicans for their second favorite Democratic senator. One of the best expressions of disgust was by Jezebel's Jane Starr Drinkard who wrote An Open Letter To Kyrsten Sinema's Denim Vest.

Arizona Democrat Kyrsten Sinema wore a jean jacket vest Tuesday to preside over the U.S. Senate.
The throwback fashion statement — and we’ll call it what it was, tacky — wasn’t her first questionable choice or behavior that has drawn condemnation. But the utter surprise for those expecting a more professional sartorial demeanor — even from her — remained.
And it came at a crossroads, as congressional Democrats closed in on a deal for a domestic spending package. It’s something Sinema had previously stood in the way of, provoking anger among many of her colleagues in part because, in addition to trolling instead of engaging, she used it as part of an apparent attention-getting ploy.
Sinema’s strategy continued. But it injected denim into a space that, though desecrated in the Jan. 6 insurrection, has rarely seen such garb — even around Halloween.
It did not go without notice.

Flip your hair around.
Check your phone.
Get off on power without actually working.
