hubiestubert: Bob Dole fell on his sword at a time when his Party had, well, not much. He did the honorable thing, and while I didn't agree with some of his policies, he was a good man for the party, and sadly, the party crapped on him at the end, and that leaves me somewhat saddened. Good on him.
RexTalionis: I also miss Bob Dole because it meant Norm McDonald would still be employed.
dervish16108: Bob Dole is a socialist by 2012 Republican standards.
max_pooper: Bob Dole was a respectable Republican until Bob Dole jumped on the Swift Boat band wagon and questioned John Kerry's military record. That was the point when Bob Dole went from being a decent GOP member that I disagreed with on policy issues to a run of the mill GOP scumbag.

Liu Ni Gai: Wow man. I was sure Bob Dole was dead.
