Can Democrats prevent Qpublicans from reading books and not paying attention during the trial?

I assume if a juror tried that in a regular trial they'd be dismissed and replaced. Why are republicans allowed to take our tax dollars while neglecting to uphold their duties?

6. If they don't pay attention to the trial or aren't there,

I don't think they should be able to vote.

7. Bingo! And as far as conviction goes,

only 2/3 of those who are actually present are needed.

9. Best thing to do would be to

take pictures and then use them in ads later, likely in national ad campaigns. Use it to paint Republicans as not taking their jobs seriously or something. Don't even need to say it's from the impeachment. Make the ads look like the Republican senators are just goofing off all the time instead of working. Run the ads in the states like PA and NC where they need to protect open seats.

10. They can shame them publicly for doing it and hope the voters in that state give a shit.

Unfortunately democracy doesn't work when the electorate doesn't pay attention or doesn't care.

12. Of course not? Don't worry about it. Corrupt, conscienceless Republicans

have been very ostentatiously insulting their duties and the other party for years. Nothing new here.
