Response to Proud liberal 80 (Original post)

9. Nope, not a good idea.

First of all, why muddy the event by tossing more shit into the mix?

Our best bet is to leave this solely to the repugs and let them make asses of themselves in clear view of the country.

As another poster pointed out in this thread, adding Dem objections to the event just feeds the "both sides" narrative - something that would be absolutely counter-productive.

Far more effective would be to allow the Civil Rights division of the Biden Justice Department take on the issue of voter suppression. Congress itself could also mount their own investigations that can proceed carefully over time, instead of a rushed one-day show.

Congress can also explore what may be possible in crafting legislation to improve election processes and systems throughout the country.

Let the repugs have their dog-and-pony show on January 6. Then the Dems can get to work in a serious and sober manner going forward.
