Irrefutable, physical evidence that the wife of a SCOTUS Justice was actively involved in a plot to overturn the results of a free election and overthrow the government of the United States. Yeah, I’d say we have a “conflict of interest” on the Court. 

Mo Brooks is now Dunn, too. Boot scoot your lying ass outta here. I think it’s hilarious that Trump “betrayed” him. So Brooks is surprised? The only person Trump has ever displayed consistent loyalty to is that genius peacekeeper Vladimir Putin.

Why the relentless attack on Texas LBGTQ public school students? It’s simple. It’s mean just for the hell of mean, like anything else Abbott and Paxton conspire to do. Because Mikey the Mouthbreather and Bubba the Blusterer like it. Kudos for Austin ISD for telling Kenny Boy where he can stick his letter.

It’s Friday. Judge Jackson’s dignity and integrity are still intact. Which is more than can be said about Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley.

One final thought before I simply wish you a great weekend. I think the GOP needs to change its acronym to NBD, for No Big Deal. They tell us everything is No Big Deal.

Proven Russian interference in our elections? No Big Deal.

Nearly one million American COVID deaths, at least fifty percent of which were completely unnecessary and preventable? No Big Deal.

Weaponizing the U.S. Department of Justice? No Big Deal.

An armed insurrection at our Capitol whose goal was to overturn a free election and overthrow the government of the United States? No Big Deal.

Cynical attempts to restrict the voting rights of qualified citizens? No Big Deal.

War in Ukraine that poses a global threat the likes of which we have not seen in more than eight decades, if ever? No Big Deal.

Undeniable, conclusive, irrefutable evidence of planet-threatening climate change? No Big Deal.

Now let’s just go off on tangents about CRT and invent scapegoats for gas prices.

Have a good weekend.

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.
