Orchestrated? It is clear that the January 6, 2021 attempt to overthrow the government of the United States was more orchestrated than Beethoven’s Ninth.

Ginni Thomas?

John Eastman? Look, with one exception, I’m not sure who is actually going to prison in this abomination. But John Eastman is going to rot. With my full support and encouragement. Understand, Eastman will be everybody’s fall guy here. He’s dead.

Weeks before Jan. 6, Eastman was floating the idea of threatening violence at the Capitol as a way of influencing SCOTUS to weigh in on behalf of Trump and The Big Lie.

The key to all of this is Pence, of course. You have to figure he’s, you know, kinda pissed. But he’ll strategically try to stay above the fray and let his staff do his singing. And they will be operatic.

Why does all this matter? To keep this kinda shit from happening again, especially with Trump seeking a return to the White House. This is by no means “old news,” and it is not time to “move on.”

I fully expect Trump to formally announce his candidacy for president in 2024 in the next few weeks. Why? Deflection, as usual. Trump can raise more money by announcing and can gain more flexibility over that money. Plus, becoming an announced candidate might fade at least some legal heat, since courts and judges might be reticent to appear “purely political.” And as an announced candidate, Trump can whine about any decision that goes against him as evidence of “political bias.” Trump is very good at whining.

Understand, everyone around Trump is telling him it’s too early to announce. That’s one more reason why he will, of course.

But don’t discount the entertainment factor. If Trump reaches toward his holster, DeSantis will have to draw as well. Watching those two pigs trying to waste each other will be more fun than a toga party. Everybody on the floor! Time to do The Gator!

More problems with baby formula production. We can neither feed our babies nor protect them from being slaughtered. We need to stop reading our press clippings.  We suck.

Oh, you know that point of climatological no return that smart people have been warning us about for a half-century? Congrats. We may have already passed it. But you were smarter than these experts, right?  What exactly is it that “Conservatives” control? Certainly not coastlines.

Love, prayers, support and thanks to Dr. Fauci.

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.
