War Hero Bob Dole Passes Away at 98


Bob Dole has passed away at age 98.

Dole is remembered as a war hero who overcame life-threatening injuries during World War II.

He later went on to become a senator and was the 1996 presidential candidate for the republican party.

Mr. Dole’s family released this statement:

“Bob Dole never forgot where he came from. He embodied the integrity, humor, compassion and unbounded work ethic of the wide open plains of his youth,” the statement read. “He was a powerful voice for pragmatic conservatism, and it was that unique Kansan combination of attributes and values that made him such a giant of the Senate.”

He will be remembered for his war-time bravery, his zest for life, and his wonderful sense of humor.

Rest in Peace Bob Dole.


Who would have ever thought back in the 1990s that we’d lose both Bob Dole and Norm Macdonald in the same year decades later in 2021?

And that we’d lose the inimitable Norm Macdonald first.

What a year.
