    Chip Franklin Is Not An Ass

    As some of you may remember, two days ago I launch into a rant against WBAL talker Chip Franklin over his snub of the Howard County Republican Club where, after canceling an appearance at our January meeting (due to a legitimate reason I should point out), it appeared he had canceled yet again to appear at our March meeting in order to appear at a paid event instead. I also mentioned that I was under the impression that as a stipulation for his gratis appearance at our Club meeting, our Club would enter a team into the WBAL Chairty Dodgeball Tournament.

    I have now found out that he read my rant and did not take too kindly to it and let others in the Howard County Republican Club know about it. Of course he could have always contacted me directly by email or left a comment expressing his displeasure with my post, but no need to dwell on that. That being said, it appears that the situation has changed for the better since what I found out last Friday. The good news is that whatever event that was causing the conflict has been changed and Chip Franklin will now be attending our meeting this month as a guest speaker! Hooray!

    I also spoke with him by phone earlier and in my conversation with him, he addressed the issue of whether there was a requirement that our Club enter a team into the WBAL Charity Dodgeball Tournament as a trade for his appearance at our meeting. He said there was never any quid pro quo that our Club had to enter a team into the Charity Dodgeball Tournament in order for him to appear and he was willing to appear regardless of whether we entered a team or not. Since I was not a party to the original negotiations for his appearance, I will take Chip Franklin’s word for it and trust him that there was never a quid pro quo and I retract and apologize for that part of the criticism.

    The good news is that he is now coming and I am looking forward to hearing him speak. And you people who sent me emails and left comments about how they felt less of him because of this situation can start turn back on WBAL from 9am-Noon and enjoy his show again.

    By the way, here is a link to his radio show and here is a link to his personal site.

      Dave,

      I may just have to find a way to go to your meeting just to see this guy Chip Franklin beat you down. I hope you are bigger than he is. 🙂

      I spoke to Chip after Dave did. He just wanted to set the record straight. He also said, since he will appear at the meeting on St. Patrick Day he will buy Dave a Guinnness. (not really just don’t tell Dave)

      Was Franklin an ass before he wasn’t an ass?
