Lindsey Graham has earned himself yet another chapter in “Profiles in Cowardice.” He knew Trump was dangerously unfit. He still knows it. They all knew it. They all still know it. How do we know that? Because they’ve all said it. And it’s all recorded. Graham. McCarthy. McConnell. Meadows. Call the roll.

And now they want to put our country back through that hell and back into that peril again?  Yes. “Profiles in Cowardice.”

Why would any GOP candidate for pretty much anything WANT a Trump endorsement? I mean, except that it’s magic among the Cultists. LeGrande L’Orange is undefeated except in Nebraska. These Cultists just can’t get enough of that criminally seditious insurrectionist and traitor.

And let me re-state something I first wrote six months ago. Biden will be a one-term president. He has no path out. Some things are his fault. Many other things (inflation, gas prices, the stock market) are not. But it won’t matter. Perception is everything. And the Perception Ship has sailed. The Dems do not have anyone waiting in the wings who is remotely electable in 2024. And that’s not “hyperbole.”

But this is not hyperbole, either. So far, Biden has done a remarkable job—make that a brilliant job—of managing U.S. interests in Mr. Putin’s War. That could change. But so far Biden has been two-steps ahead of that KGB Devil at every turn.

Putin thought his four-year manipulation of Trump had left NATO weakened, fractured and ineffective. Instead Pooty-Poot is facing a unified and resolute NATO that is about to add Finland and Sweden. Sucks for you, Vlad.

I’m watching 80-year-old David Gergen on tv saying that Biden is too old and too slow to be president. I’m open to that suggestion. But is Trump not too fucking crazy to be president? This is indeed what Webster’s would define as a “dilemma.”

Codify Roe as the Law of the Land? The votes in the Senate are not there, so you can forget that.

Gun violence is up around the country.  Way up. And we’re told the solution is more guns under less regulation and supervision. My statement is not anti-gun, per se. It’s anti-insanity.

Ukraine? Not enough? Consider this. It could be flat-out on (again) between the Israelis and Palestinians by the time we talk tomorrow. Let me be clear. There was NO justification for Israeli soldiers murdering an Al Jazeera Palestinian-American journalist and wounding her producer. None. Outrageous. I condemn it and them in no uncertain terms. There is mounting evidence that she was specifically targeted.

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.
