CAGOP CONVENTION | It’s like falling into an alternate dimension here. A Democrat’s alternative world were similar personas are everywhere. There’s an older version of Bill Quirk, like a lost brother abandoned by his mother to only show up here supporting a crumbling party in a Democratic State. Then there’s Elizabeth Warren’s look alike and one fella had flapping ears like disgruntled former Hayward school board member Jesus Armas, but these were definitely space ship sized satellite versions where Armas were more roof top additions. Alameda County’s GOP rising star, Chris Pareja is present today. Maybe at the Democratic California Convention next month we will see his alternative liberal version.
