Every day I am reminded that Narcissism is alive and well in the body politic. I have written before that I believe Chad Mayes is a classic Narcissist.
Chad Mayes is constitutionally incapable of grasping that he screwed up.
He is also constitutionally incapable of grasping that people want him out of office.
So, we get tweets like this where he seeks to lecture the leadership of the California Republican Party about Steve Bannon.
Mr. Mayes demonstrates repeatedly that he is indeed tone deaf to the Republican Party Platform. Worse, these tweets show that he still thinks he is right and everyone else is wrong. You can not deal with someone this intransigent. He is going to repeat to everyone that the way to the promised land is for the GOP to adopt democrat party policy positions in order to be relevant again.
He has other tweets where he is interacting with the former governor who was the author of AB32, which has caused massive hikes in energy costs, with more coming in 2018 courtesy of un-elected boards created by it.
The problem is how far do you move the GOP Tent to the left before it becomes synonymous with the dems?
The Al Moncada at the bottom of the second set of tweets is an open borders advocate whose limited social media presence is dedicated to attacking President Trump.
The NB in the middle holds himself out as an employee of the CMA (California Medical Association). The NB may be Nick Bertcil who is on the CMA’s website. The California Medical Association is a left-leaning group that lobbies for government money in to the health care industry. They frequently endorse socialized medicine type bills, etc. The people they seem to resent would characterize them as part of the swamp.
Note that Nick Bertcil tagged Joe Justin in his tweet. As we’ve asserted here many times, Justin was an architect of the Cap and Trade deal that ignited Chad Mayes removal as Assembly GOP Leader. You may also recall Joe Justin’s social media profile picture featuring an Obama deadhead shirt.
Kevin Spillane – whose tweet was re-tweeted basically calls the CAGOP leadership racist along with Sheriff Joe Arpaio – has been a left-leaning Republican Political Consultant for years. I’ve known him to work on the campaigns of democrats as well. It is clear Mr. Spillaine was a big loser when Chad Mayes was demoted and has been on a rampage of his own.
Jimmy Camp is a former Republican Consultant who used to run ground operations in targeted GOP Races. In 2008, he publicly stated that he voted for Obama, yet still got work as a GOP Consultant for years after. In 2016, he once against left the GOP because President Trump won the primary.
These are the folks backing up Mr. Mayes and Mayes continues to struggle for relevance.
What this exercise tells me is that even though it feels like Chad was able to “win” by getting good committee assignments and “assistant leader” title, that his nearly psychotic ego has been deeply injured.
Chad Mayes is on the ballot in 2018. I do believe that anyone with the wherewithall needs to donate to the candidate you believe can unseat him and if possible participate in the effort of said candidate. The only way the consultants, lobbyists and people like mayes will learn is by losing.
Even then, if Chad Mayes loses, folks like these will blame an inflexible GOP, blah, blah, blah. When people are unreachable, they need to be removed. In a couple days, before the coming CAGOP Convention, I will have some more to say about Republican Values and why they actually matter – even in a state like California.
