Bob Dole wonders if he's read this one:

"We trained hard, but it seemed that everytime we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralization."<P>

You sure that Gun wasnt Lip Synching to a Marty Shottenheimer recording?

Stop showing off, Kloster.

210 B.C.

Yosef_Malkovitch 08-23-2000 01:30 PM

Showing off? I just assumed everyone knew that....

Yosef_Malkovitch 08-23-2000 01:32 PM

Plus, Bob, I think it was a little more recent than 210 B.C. In the 60's B.C. if memory serves....

htismaqe 08-23-2000 01:33 PM

Bob Dole stands by 210 B.C. (for the moment).

Bob Dole stands corrected, but in good company it would seem.

OMG, I can't believe Bob Dole actually found that. Bob Dole must have way too much time on his hands today.

I also can't believe KP recgnized it, whihc is followed by my disbelief that someone so knowledgable could have gotten bit so bad by a bogus quotation.

Plus, I'm now one post closer to being (a)regular.

Bob Dole was just wandering around at lunch looking for a good tagline to steal... Alas, the Petronius item is a bit long to attach to every post.

Bob - is your signature your life story?

htismaqe 08-23-2000 02:25 PM

No. Bob Dole's life story is also too long to work well as a signature.<P>
