Apparently, Liz Cheney isn’t the only GOPer whose sound character has put him or her beyond the pale.
The Ohio Republican Party’s leaders called on Rep. Anthony Gonzalez to resign for voting to impeach former President Donald Trump, a stunning rebuke of one of their own.
On Friday, the party’s governing board called on Gonzalez, R-Rocky River, to resign in a divided vote. They also voted to censure Gonzalez and nine other members of Congress for “their votes to support the unconstitutional, politically motivated impeachment proceeding against President Donald J. Trump,” according to the resolution.
There once were honorable conservatives in this country; famously, it was Senator Barry Goldwater (R, AZ) who went to the White House and told Richard Nixon he had to resign.
That was a long time ago, though. The GOP has since degenerated into a malice-eaten cult whose locus is a crude, buffoonish, gang-boss wanna-be. I’m past worrying about the future of conservatism and the direction of public policy in this country; now I’m just worrying about the country. When nearly half of a country’s citizens are unable to smell the sewage surrounding Trump — it’s in serious trouble.
