Nothing screams the "future of the Republican Party" like an endorsement from a 92-year-old former senator. At the top of Thursday's radio show, Glenn read an endorsement letter recently sent out by Bob Dole's camp touting Jeb Bush's ability to take on the status quo and win the 2016 presidential election.
"It seems to me there's only one candidate to take on Hillary Clinton and take back the White House," the letter stated. It went on to proclaim Jeb as the perfect candidate to tackle the "entrenched special interests" in D.C.
Really? This is another nail in the coffin for Jeb Bush's campaign, showing how out-of-step he is with the current political climate and the tenor of this election.
"Jeb is getting the re-endorsement of Bob Dole, a guy most people think has been dead for 10 years," Glenn said.
For a little background on Bob Dole, 92, he was a longtime U.S. senator from Kansas who ran a disastrous presidential campaign in 1996.
"Until John Kasich, the worst candidate of all time," Pat added.

Later in the program, Glenn mentioned that he didn't want to say anything bad about Bob Dole or make fun of a 92-year-old man because he was a good guy - a definite RINO, but a good guy. The real story here is the Bush campaign going to the well of the past to endorse a campaign for the future.
