Rachel Bitecofer hung with The Lincoln Project for a while, so we’re not sure if she’s a principled conservative™ who had no choice but to change sides or if she’s always been a Democrat. We know how she felt about the January 6 select committee’s prime-time hearing: it was proof that “a Republican president sent an armed militia to seize control of Congress.” What were they armed with again?
In any case, Bitecofer has landed on the perfect response to anything a Republican might hit you with:
No matter what Republicans hit you with, respond with “but you tried to end American democracy.”

Gas is over $5 a gallon nationally … “but you tried to end American democracy.”
I have to drive across three state lines to find baby formula … “but you tried to end American democracy.”
Inflation is at its highest level since 1981 … “but you tried to end American democracy.”
“It cost me $125 to fill up my Explorer. This is really hurting my family.”
“But Republicans tried to end American democracy.”
“Are you stupid or something?” https://t.co/JMKGenCGJ7

You’re ruining the lives of America but want people to believe you’re not a conspiracy theorist. Run with that. https://t.co/FHfls4DDNU

So the side that is telling almost half of us we can’t express our opinions, is trying to pack the SC, and end the Electoral College says WE are the ones for ending democracy? Yeah, run with that!

Another genius idea from the people that brought you Ultra Maga, wonder if it took 6 months and a committee to come up with this winner?

Many Democrats think this is good messaging, which is why they’re on course to go over a waterfall this November. https://t.co/pyAVO4Ft7N

I really hope the Democrats are bringing more to the table in November than J6 stuff, because that and weird nicknames are all they’ve tried for the past two years and it has had absolutely no traction politically. https://t.co/139Oe58S8g

Democrats should definitely run on nothing but January 6 — ignore everything else. How about all of the Democrats who objected to certifying the electoral votes for Donald Trump — some of whom now serve on the January 6 committee? Were they trying to end American democracy?
Rachel Bitecofer reminds us that Donald Trump ‘sent an armed militia to seize control of Congress’ on January 6 https://t.co/2yH041kExL
