If you think political talk radio is a brutal place, you should try sports talk radio. In the world of news talk, you have a biased hosed with a political agenda attempting to spin current events to make you see them his way. In the world of sports talk, you largely have a field of minds so jammed with statistics and dates that they are unable to form a point of view on anything other than a simple Vegas line, let alone manage to try to find a way to spin the event for the mindless masses who tune it. This can make listening to channels like Mad Dog Radio on Sirius and XM Radio an exercise in frustration. Yet it is an exercise that I perform almost daily, and occasionally I call in to try to straighten some of these guys out. My latest beef? The New York Knicks.
Everybody else is doing it, so why not Ron Paul? He becomes the latest Republican candidate to meet with The Donald in hopes of getting the apparently coveted nomination. When Trump took Sarah Palin out to Famiglia for a pizza, nobody realized the trend that they were starting. By the time Rick Perry showed up alongside The Donald at Jean Georges, you knew that Mitt Romney was going to have to show up and take his turn. But Ron Paul becomes the first Candidate to meet with the Real Estate mogul who will make Trump's hair look good.
We spoke with Trump's secretary to try to get some info on the upcoming meeting, but unfortunately she remained pretty tight lipped. When, where, and how were questions she was not willing to answer. As to why, she simply said that Mr. Trump didn't want to alienate Mr. Paul or his followers from the new Republican tradition. We asked where the two would dine and she said "Come on, now. It's Ron Paul. Most likely they will just have a bowl of Fruit Loops in his office".
