Personally signed by Bob Dole
Easton Press, Norwalk, CT. Bob Dole "Great Political Wit". Signed First Edition. Personally signed by Bob Dole directly onto the limitation page. Limited to only 1,200 signed and numbered copies. Very Fine with COA. Sealed.
Bob Dole's political career may not have taken him to the White House, but he did pick up some great stories along the way. In this delightful collection, the longtime United States senator shares his favorite anecdotes, witticisms, and reminiscences.
From the campaign trail to the Oval Office, from smoke-filled rooms to the chambers of the Capitol, Bob Dole surveys a century of political wit. There are bon mots from Calvin Coolidge, Winston Churchill, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and a host of other political figures. Bob Dole introduces each section with mirthful moments from his own experience, displaying the gift for wry humor that has made him a favorite guest on late-night talk shows. A jovial--and completely bipartisan--compendium, Great Political Wit is a connoisseur's selection of political repartee at its best.
"This material would make any party merrier, political or otherwise."

"Bottom Line: White House joke book gets our vote."
"Dole's collection of political humor is charming."
