Subject: Re: On those Bobdolisms

Two small thoughts.

1) This usage first jumped out at me during the heyday of Bo Jackson, the

baseball/football star. So this would be maybe five years ago. I had

heard isolated instances before, but Bo, like Bob Dole, seemed to use it


2) Bo Jackson and Bob Dole (and Nixon, for that matter) strike me as

people who are essentially rather shy, or at least deeply uncomfortable

in public speaking.
