… Jeff Miller could be heard roaming the halls of the Republican Party convention telling anyone who would listen that he was not trying to sabotage the California Republican Party.

From what I was told, few if any, were listening to his pleas.

Charles Munger, Luis Buhler and Jeff Miller were the talk of the CRP Convention and apparently, Buhler/Munger caused the cops to be called twice to the convention.

You, know – control.

The halls of the convention were filled with people who had been targeted by Charles Munger. Charles Munger apparently is a meglomaniac – because if I was trying to take something over, I wouldn’t be attacking 2/3 of the delegates.

As of Sat Afternoon when I left – there were only 370 paid physically present delegates in Burbank.

Dave Gilliard and Phil Paule also had a really bad time, too.

Since this hotel was basically the same place where the 24-man cabal rendered CRP endorsements in March – Phil Paule must have figured that he could get one now that the primary was over and he was a former staffer of Darrell Issa.

He was wrong.

The CRP Board for once grew a spine and sent Phil Paule packing.

Paule left the convention like the building was on fire, not even stopping for a cold one.

However, Phil can certainly find an understanding case of PBR (usually on sale for about $10) and split it with Dave Gilliard to drown his sorrows.

The above is why people like Dave Gilliard appear to be fine with the gambit by Charles Munger and the legislators to attempt to kill the CRP or take it over. It is about controlling the endorsements.

… and that gets me to Prop 40. At the behest of the legislators, they decided to reverse the past position on Prop 40 and support a Yes position, effectively killing the referendum that the CRP spent all that money on.

I guess several legislators have their districts and don’t want to upset the apple cart… and so it goes, control.

Years ago, when I used to pound a few brewskis, I used to like Coors. A lot of my friends liked Pabst Blue Ribbon – known as “PBR”. My Mexican buddies in Fresno loved Budweiser.

Phil Paule is campaigning as a fiscal conservative and I have him definately pegged as a PBR drinker – as PBR is much less expensive than Coors or Budweiser, even if there is a sale.

Phil Pabst Paule (PPP) must have been enjoying a fiscally conservative bender the other night when sending out emails. He was definitely excited over the endorsement of Michelle Steel. PPP characterized Michelle Steel as California’s highest-ranking Republican.

#EPICFAIL. Allow this blogger to render assistance to Mr. Paule. Kevin McSquishy (McCarthy) is the 3rd Highest Ranking Republican in Congress. I think that is a little higher than a board of equalization member. For the Record, McSquishy is not on Phil Pabst Paule’s endorsement list… but I take note that PPP’s endorsement list is full of Dave Gilliard clients. (Cozy)

This was not a blue ribbon moment for Phil Pabst Paule. David Stafford Gilliard needs to stop taking PPP’s money and needs to start helping Mr. Paule send out emails that don’t make him look like an idiot. (a la Dan Hughes)

But, the checks cash.
