Senator Bob Dole was a great American!
He was a genuine war hero and a lion of the Senate.
It would have been an honor to salute the man!
I wanted to watch his funeral on TV and scheduled my exercise that day, so I could watch it while on the treadmill.
When I got to the gym, I took the treadmill in front of the TV showing the funeral service.
Soon, a good friend got there and took the treadmill next to mine.
A few minutes later, he said “Dole was a great man, wasn’t he?”
I replied that I really loved the guy.
He asked “Then why are you watching CNN?”
Huh . . . ?
Politely, he asked if we could watch it on Fox News instead?
Too stunned to believe it mattered, I said “sure.”
Are we really at the point where showing respect for a person is less important than showing respect for a TV channel?
Senator Dole deserves non-partisan respect!
