So Geraldo apparently wants to kick my ass.

We hear a lot these days about how civility has been lost in politics -- and the media. I would remind that there was a time when public figures settled their differences with pistols at dawn. Maybe there's something to be said for that. Bring it on, Geraldo. I'll let you know next time I'm in the building.

After all, what's left when your shows have been cancelled and your greatest contribution to TV in recent years is losing on Celebrity Apprentice?

I used to respect Geraldo. He was one of the few journalists who challenged the Warren Commission findings that Oswald was "lone nut" who murdered Kennedy. Geraldo interviewed LBJ's mistress Madeleine Brown on air- where she implicated Johnson in the coup de etat. Geraldo interviewed witnesses and ballistic experts to destroy the so called "single bullet theory". I asked Geraldo about this recently. He says he doesn't remembers any of it and now thinks the Warren Commission got it right. When did he sell out and why?

What sparked Geraldo's ire was a tweet I posted commenting on how unqualified and incredibly stupid politically analyst Ana Navarro and former CNN analyst Roland Martin are. They are both as dumb as a box of rocks. Neither has ever played any role in the election of anyone to public office. Why does CNN keep billing Navarro as a "Republican Strategist"? I speculated they were token hires based on their ethnicity. Geraldo went nuts and played the race card by calling me a racist.

I've been in the real trenches of American politics for more than 40 years, while Geraldo has been visiting trenches in the hope that someone will take a shot at him while his camera's rolling. Americans are sick of politically correct crap from their politicians – and too many in the media. If Geraldo can't handle it when someone says what a LOT of people are thinking, that's just too bad.

But threatening assault is probably not the best response. That said, if Geraldo wants to meet me at dawn, I'll be there.
