Just a lil’ dis and dat on a Sunday morning.

Farewell, Senator Dole, and thank you for everything. American. Servant. And anybody who will now call him a “RINO” will have to come through me.

CNN was perfectly justified in firing Chris Cuomo. My only question is, “What took so long?”

The attorney for those scumbag parents in Michigan is complaining that the prosecutor is “trying to make an example” out of her clients.  I would certainly hope so. Sounds like a fine idea to me.

Chris Christie has more faces and sides of his mouth than he does chins. Phony.

Then there’s Joel Osteen.

Leaders lead. Kevin McCarthy is no leader. He is an embarrassment. And more than anything, a coward.

And speaking of gutless, that would describe any comparison of Anthony Fauci to Joseph Mengele.

Uncle Joe has been known to play it a little fast and loose with the truth from time to time. Liaison?  “Mr. Ambassador”?  More like “wallflower,” by all accounts.

These new educational restrictions in Texas are beyond alarming.  The Texas Taliban. Yeah, RR is gonna get all over this ridiculousness this week.

As I’m typing, BB and I are watching an episode of Live From Daryl’s House featuring Company of Thieves.  Their lead singer, Genevieve, cracks me up.  She is KILLING Janis’s “Take Another Little Piece of My Heart.”  KILLING it!

Yeah, this will take us right up to football.

  1. A short addition to your Sen. Bob Dole comments. He would have loved RR as he was as rational a politician as you could want. I interviewed him twice and he did NOT mince his words. Running for president in 1988 he told a group of local political reporters in Austin that George HW Bush was, “lying about my record” when HW told a national interviewer that Dole, “was in favor of a tax hike.” He was called “acerbic” but I found Sen. Dole to be “refreshing” in that he didn’t duck tough questions. RIP, Sen. Dole. Thank you for your service.

Paul's Bio

I clearly have the attention span of your median fruit fly.Look! Airplane!

Sorry. I’m back.

It’s both a curse and a blessing. I’ve never bought this stuff about, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” But I do think that a wide range of life experiences helps us grow as people, and helps us better relate to other people. I’ve been fortunate. And I am beyond grateful.

I show up on time. I go like hell. I’m a good listener. I hold myself accountable. I own my mistakes. And I have a natural and an insatiable curiosity. I’m never afraid to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t. But then I try to find out.

The flip side is I’m a lousy ballroom dancer and my clothes sometimes fit me funny.

Stuff matters to me. I care. But while I take that stuff seriously, I try hard to never take myself seriously. As a result, I have sometimes been told, “Paul, it’s hard to tell when you’re serious and when you’re just having some fun. Which is it? Serious or fun?”

My answer is “yes.” But I think that is a legitimate criticism. I promise I’m going to work on that.

This has been the quickest and strangest half-century I’ve ever experienced. During that period, I’ve been afforded amazing opportunities in news and sports journalism across all platforms. I have taught wonderful students at the high school and collegiate level. Always, I learned more from them than they did from me. I’ve been a high school administrator. I spent ten seasons as a high school varsity football coach. I’ve been an advertising executive. I’ve hosted nationally syndicated television entertainment shows. In maybe the biggest honor I ever received, I was selected by NASA to be “Chet The Astronaut” for the “Land The Shuttle” simulator at Space Center Houston. (All I can say there, is “Do as I say, not as I do.” I put that thing in the Everglades more often than not.) Most recently, I just wrapped up a decade as a television news director, during which time our teams distinguished themselves in holding the powerful accountable, achieving both critical and ratings success.

What does all that mean? It means I am profoundly grateful. It also means I’m ready for “next.” So here we are. Radically Rational. It’s an idea I woke up with in 2017. I scribbled “Radically Rational” on a piece of notebook paper and used a magnet to stick it on our refrigerator. I saw it every day, and it just would not leave me alone.

I am second in charge at Radically Rational, LLC. My wife, Jo (also known as BB), is the president. Clearly, I have failed in my attempt to sleep my way to the top of this organization.

I hope you will learn that I’m loyal as a Labrador. But I will admit that this doggie can bite every now and then. My promise to you? I will show up on time. I will go like hell. I will listen to you earnestly and attentively. I will hold myself accountable. I will never be the least bit hesitant to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t.

But then I’ll try to find out. Let’s do it.
