Nothing says “Happy New Year” more to a political humorist than the phrases “GUILTY PLEA” and “cooperates fully.”
It’s music to my ears. Chocolate to my taste buds. Calamine lotion to my bug bites.
Jack Abramoff, pictured above in his Humphrey Bogart Halloween costume, the chubby Sam Spade version.
What? Even James Cagney wouldn’t wear that to court!
He plead guilty to three felony counts of tax evasion, mail fraud and conspiracy.
The more I read about this man, the more it seems to me that Mr. Jack —–off is the Forrest Gump of corruption. It seems when something bad is happening with someone bad – there’s a little Abramoff involved.
Note: Basically, Jack created an enemy and got richer off having an opposition. Which is RIGHT OUT OF THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT play book. As in,”I know we’re the majority in power but they are going to ban the bible, make being a Christian illegal and force us all to love Satan – quick send us money!”
Hollywood has Kevin Bacon – corruption has Jack Abramoff!
Rumor has it:
Move over Karl Rove – there’s a new root of all evil in town!
