Rep. Bob Good and Challenger John McGuire are ‘Stains on America’s Underwear’

Donald Trump is such an affront to humanity and such an existential threat to our democracy that he’s often compared to a stinking pile of human excrement.

Instead of recoiling in horror and distancing themselves from the orange sociopath most Republicans think that the only way they can remain viable is by copying Trump’s amoral behavior and inflammatory rhetoric.

In 2020 Republican challenger Bob Good defeated Denver Riggleman, the U.S. representative from Virginia’s 5th congressional district by attacking him for committing the unpardonable sin of officiating at the same-sex wedding of two campaign volunteers.

Since becoming a congressman Good has tried to establish his bona fides as a MAGA zealot by among other things voting to oust GOP Speaker Keven McCarthy and throwing the House into chaos. He is the chairman of the ultra-right House Freedom Caucus.

Good is running for reelection and he is facing a primary challenger from John J. McGuire, an election denier who has pledged fealty to Trump and promised to bring a “Biblical worldview” to Congress.

Good is vulnerable because he made the cardinal sin of endorsing Ron DeSantis in the Republican presidential primary. Although he immediately endorsed Trump after DeSantis withdrew from the race, he forever gained the enmity of Trump and his MAGA supporters.

Riggleman characterized Good and McGuire as “two amoral stains on America’s underwear.” They don’t have the heft and substance of Trump’s pile of dung, they are merely stains on the GOP’s underwear.

Virginia’s 5th congressional district is a safe Republican seat; therefore the winner will be a stain of human excrement.

Rep. Bob Good Booted from Trump Store

Virginia’s 5th congressional district congressman Bob Good has sterling conservative credentials, after all he’s slightly to the right of Atilla the Hun and he’s the head of the far-right House Freedom Caucus.

Under normal circumstances such conservative bona fides are enough to discourage any Republican from challenging him in the primary. But Good endorsed Ron DeSantis in the 2004 Republican presidential primary, and he endorsed Donald Trump only after the Florida governor dropped out of the race.

In the MAGA cult that’s the unpardonable sin, and regardless how conservative Good may be, Trump supporters will never forgive him for not endorsing their orange messiah from the start.

Good’s heresy in endorsing DeSantis emboldened VA Del. John McGuire to run against him in the GOP primary, and now Good is running scared. So scared in fact that he made the embarrassing rookie mistake of inviting his supporters to attend the grand opening of a Trump store in Farmville, a McGuire campaign event.

Good joined his supporters in crashing McGuire’s party, and the store’s owner was incensed by the interloper’s sacrilegious action and she was caught on tape angrily asking him to leave.

A Trump store is akin to a place of worship, and the orange buffoon’s supporters will never forgive Good for defiling their temple with his audacious stunt.

I’m a progressive and both Good and McGuire are anathema to me, but Good is substantially more of a rightwing nut, and I hope that he loses his primary.
