Should Pachyderms Reinvite Mike?

In the Coeur d'Alene Press Online comments section, Flash Gordon advises Bob Brooke & the local Pachyderms to invite Editor Mike Patrick to the club Friday for the traditional after-election postmortem. Brooke wrote a letter last week disinviting Patrick because, Brooke claims (incorrectly), the Press slanted coverage of the mayoral race against GOP fave Mary Souza:

"The Pachyderms would be well served if they relented on the general's admonition to Mike Patrick. "Someone" outside that "incestuous " group needs to provide insights as to why "they" lost this election. Blaming the Press, blaming the downtown business association, blaming the good ol' boys, blaming everyone and everything but themselves is fraught with cow pies that prevent a good hard evaluation of just what went wrong ... Knowing this group as I do, they are likely to repeat the same mistakes over and over again without some kind of external review of their tactics and strategery ..."

Question: Should the Pachyderms re-invite disinvited Press Editor Mike Patrick to break down city election results?
