  •  Back when Ollie North was running for Senate, (4+ / 0-)

    I got his campaign flyer in the mail, telling me how the LIBERALS in Congress were going to be taken down a peg, by golly, when he strode up the aisle of the Senate. I chucked the flyer and told a fried about it the next day, mentioning the postage-paid return envelope thoughtfully provided for my contribution. He said, "You should have taped it to a brick and mailed it back." Talk about yer lost opportunity...

    •  I suspect Bob Dole, who became Senate Maj. Leader (1+ / 0-)

      in 1994, was quietly glad to be able to attain a Senate Majority without Ollie North.

      •  What makes you say that? Memory has begun (0+ / 0-)

        to fade a bit, but Bob Dole was a nasty piece of work and you'd think he'd have enjoyed having someone like Ollie around to shoot his fool mouth off.
