Bob Dole died in his sleep this morning

Quote
Bob Dole, who overcame disabling war wounds to become a sharp-tongued Senate leader from Kansas, a Republican presidential candidate and then a symbol and celebrant of his dwindling generation of World War II veterans, has died. He was 98.

His wife, Elizabeth Dole, posted the announcement Sunday on Twitter.

Dole announced in February 2021 that he’d been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. During his 36-year career on Capitol Hill, Dole became one of the most influential legislators and party leaders in the Senate, combining a talent for compromise with a caustic wit, which he often turned on himself but didn’t hesitate to turn on others, too.

He was born one week before my paternal grandpa.  RIP Mr. Dole.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Thank you for your service to our country, Senator.
You would have been a fine President.


I will never forget him standing up, with great effort, in order to salute the casket of Pres. George H.W. Bush when he was lying in state two years ago.

Bob Dole was a husband, father, a statesman, a self-sacrificing war hero, a man with dry, biting wit rare in these caustic times, but I think I will remember him most for his career-capping nude scene on The Simpsons. (Forward to 1:22.)

RIP, Senator.

A funny thing if I may: in the early days of CNN broadcasting here, there was a Jeanne Moos feature about boom mikes of all things and part of it was given over to politicians and famous people getting into trouble with those things, including the OJ trial judge Lance Ito getting hit on the head with one  Buggedout

Cue a shot of Senator Dole standing with a child:

The first thing I thought of when I heard the news was this same Simpsons episode, haha.

"Ehhh....Bob Dole doesn't need this." :D

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
