I voted for Bob Dole in 1996. There… I said it. I’m not afraid to admit it.
I remember why I voted for him quite clearly. I was thoroughly appalled by President Clinton’s indiscretions and evasions, and the Lewinsky scandal was the last straw. Once that got out, I decided to vote for Bob Dole. I feel that this is a defensible position.
Except, of course, that it is quite obviously wrong. The Lewinsky scandal broke in 1998. My very clear recollections of why I voted for Bob Dole are easily shown to be deeply flawed. The only explanation I can possibly come up with is… um… maybe my brain chemistry wasn’t entirely in its original condition during those years. It was my Steve Dallas phase.
So, what about you. Anyone else out there have a memory that they would have sworn by, only to learn that it was bogus? Surely I’m not the only one. Right? RIGHT??!?
