It's not easy to determine who benefits from the Democratic protest of electoral vote certification.
The Democrats? Not likely. To most observers, it appears like little more than sour grapes... fermented, perhaps. There is no credible evidence that the election was anything but legitimate.
The American People? Hardly. To most, it appears to be a feeble attempt to chip away at the foundations of the Republic.
This isn't doing anyone any good, least of all the Democratic party.
|Mark Steyn on the Democrat’s protesting the electoral vote certification:
Indeed, on Thursday, one Democrat senator and 31 Democrat House members voted to decertify Ohio’s electoral votes and disenfranchise 62 million people who voted for President Bush. Among the “honorable” members of Congress who took this outrageous action were:
Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), former presidential candidate
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL), son of former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson
These aren’t just kook grassroots Democrats. They’re high-ranking elected officials who would hold significant sway over public policy if the Democrats ever managed to take back the House or Senate.
