You and Bob Dole share a hometown, Russell, Kan. What do they put in the water there?Okay, enough cock talk. Unless this counts;
Debaters’ tonic. Russell is famous for its high-school debate championship teams.

Many women can never forgive you for your aggressive questioning of Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings. Do you regret your behavior?This doesn't count:

Asked who he’s backing now in elections, Specter said, “I’m looking for more Democratic members. Nothing personal.”
