He is very conservative in his views on politics and delights in sparing on the radio and Fox Television with those holding opposing opinions. He faced a difficult challenge in marrying a woman named Denise with 4 sons whom he met in Greenville, but that was nothing compared to taking on her affiliation as a registered Democrat. The bio is funny, lighthearted and self-deprecating except where the author has had his feathers ruffled by liberal members of the media, Hollywood celebrities, and politicians.
