Seems @RadioFreeTom is done: "[Collins'] speech on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh convinced me that the Republican Party now exists for one reason, and one reason only: for the exercise of raw political power."  https://www.theatlantic.com/author/tom-nichols/ 

I expect this process will continue. The last remaining Rs with a twinge of decency, a devotion to something other than tribal power, will peel off -- and what remains of the party will be the resentful, nihilistic, and increasingly dangerous core.

Hm, perhaps a direct link to the story would be helpful:  https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/10/tom-nichols-why-im-leaving-republican-party/572419/
