Bob Dole

Kansas' favorite political son has a great wit.. a few of his quotes:

We're trying to get good pictures. Don't worry very much about what I say.

You feel a little older in the morning. By noon I feel about 55.

The internet is a great way to get on the net.

If you're hanging around with nothing to do and the zoo is closed, come over to the Senate. You'll get the same kind of feeling and you won't have to pay.

History buffs probably noted the reunion at a Washington party a few weeks ago of three ex-presidents: Carter, Ford and Nixon - See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Evil.

Elizabeth's back at the red cross, and I'm walking the dog. At least she's the president of something, which is more than I can say.


  1. Hi Bob,

    I noticed your comment on inthequiet's blog.

    You said that waith is sometimes translated as hope ... you've got me curious.

    What were you refering to when you said waith?

  2. Sorry, misquoted you. You actually said:

    "Sometimes waith can be translated hope."

  3. Translate 'waith' = 'wait' ... as in Isaiah 40:31 ... here is the translation for wait in 'wait upon the lord' ...

    qavah (875c); a prim. root; to wait for: - eagerly waits (1), expect (1), expected (3), hope (3), hoped (1), hopefully wait (1), hoping (1), look (1), look eagerly (1), looked (2), wait (22), waited (7), waited for you eagerly (1), waited patiently (1).

    ... I think that the idea is that when we wait we do it with hope.

  4. I had no idea that Bob Dole was so clever and funny.

    If only, if only he hadn't done the ED commercials....
