He's a conservative.  Craven cowardice is an inherent trait.

if your moral compass prevents you from being a traitor it is hard to run under the party of treason.

Gonzales voted against the first impeachment, for certification of the electoral votes with no objections, and for second impeachment.

Which is to say it was "copy/paste spend time with family " or polonium.

He at least had gumption to say, if a little obliquely, that the GOP and it's base are nuts right now. He got censured by his state's party. Sometimes it's not about fighting a losing battle, especially when you need police protection for your family. Why would he engage in a risky fight to represent people who would just as likely kill him than support him because he dared cross their orange demon god? This is the right thing for him to do right now. He got to say his piece, he doesn't have to waste his time or his money, and he can still appease his self-interest by getting a comfy lobbyist job somewhere.

A (relatively) sane Republican retiring, losing the incumbency advantage, and being replaced in the general by an screeching insane Trumpist lunatic?

I feel like I'm going to get a lot of mileage out of Mr. Hartnell.

Integrity.

Integrity is what I keep telling myself while I grow my lip-T, and it is a righteous lip-T.

But I'm going to keep growing it, and you'll keep having it -- these are things that are hard to have in life, so I approve of your choice to take it -- good for you for throwing in the towel when you see your party has gone banana pants.

No doubt he was threatened on top of that.

Just a reminder that he also voted against the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.

So maybe hold off on those parade plans.

In 17th century Salem Village, yes.

\fun fact for the two people who probably don't know, Salem Village =/= modern Salem, no matter what the tourist traps tell you
\\also, the head magistrates of the trials lived on an estate that eventually became Danvers State Hospital, which is the inspiration for Lovecraft & DC's Arkham

Anthony Gonzalez spent about as much time as a politician as he did playing wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts who wasted a first round pick on him in 2007. Another well paying job that he sucked at and ultimately quit.

Aaron Godfrey 2022.   I can't vote for him, but if he runs again, I will surely volunteer for his campaign.

Getting death threats from Trump worshipers every hour on the hour tends to remove a certain cachet from a life of public service.

If so, he has not chosen America. Good men doing nothing is what makes the evil go 'round. He should flip parties and state all the truth he can about the Radical Religious Right.

He's also in an R+10 district, with a thoroughly odious Trump aide challenging him for the nomination. You can make the case that he should stay and fight, but Gonzalez was going to lose that primary handily. Max Miller is the kind of awful that GOP voters want right now.

Mentions family a few times right at the beginning. He was forced out for not playing ball, probably some roger stone dug up dirt on him.

Trumpism has...not done well since he lost. I know he still has the support of the batshiat minority, but that isn't translating to votes. The Newsome recall was actually close enough to worry about until Larry Elder became the frontrunner, and he got crushed flat. Not only that, but his whines of voter fraud have exactly zero traction. Republicans discovered somewhere between November and now that unfounded complaints of voter fraud actually keep their supporters OUT of the booth. (Would you participate in a rigged system?)

He's not the only one. A Trump endorsement is starting to look like a good way to lose, and if I were a Republican I'd be running away from his shadow as fast as I could. I mean, I'm hideously biased; nothing would make me happier than the GOP spending at least two generations wandering in the wilderness considering the crap they tried to pull, but I feel pretty invigorated whenever I see Trump candidates fail and fail and fail.

I honestly haven't watched enough of it to know.  I saw the first two or three episodes, then something shiny distracted me.

I haven't made it back to watch the rest yet.

You should care.

Much like cops who blow the whistle on police misconduct, any remotely, even slightly responsible and sane Republicans are being relentlessly purged by their vile former colleagues.

There are no sane Republicans left, and I'm not going to pretend an asshole isn't an asshole just because they voted correctly once among an unending sea of monumentally vile votes.

I don't strictly disagree with you.  I just think that at this point we need to be honest about how this is about DEGREES of being an asshole.  You have the R's Sedition Caucus at one end representing people who should be behind bars if not pushing up daisies, and the Squad at the other who, while ineffective, are at least trying to do right by their constituents.

99.999% of everyone between those two groups is a lying, cheating, vile asshole to some degree or another.  It still doesn't behoove us to shiatcan the ones closer to the Squad than to the Seditionistas.  At least, not until they're put where they, and all Nazis, belong.
