Dick Cheney Had No Comment

So on the Golden Globe awards, George Clooney says of Jack Abramoff, "Who would name their kid Jack with the last words 'off' at the end of your last name? No wonder that guy is screwed up."

And so Jack Abramoff's dad fired back in an open letter to Clooney, "Your glib and ridiculous attack on my son, Jack, coupled with your obscene query as to the choice his mother and I made in naming him brought shame and dishonor on you and your profession. What drove you to this lapse in lucidity, I can never know, but you need to know that your words were deeply hurtful to many innocent and decent people-- who love my son and who cherish our family [and you did it in a way that even my son the pleaded-out felon who ran a GOP slush fund and is linked to mob-style rubout in Florida could not.]"

Note: open letters may be edited for clarity.

Now what's the real lesson here? That you should think a bit about the nicknames your child will face on the playground? Or that no one watches the Golden Globes, and if you'd just keep your mouth shut, the whole thing would've blown over, but now that you mention it, YOUR SON IS A FELON AT THE CENTER OF A GIANT GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION SCANDAL, MISTER ABRAMOFF?

I thought making kids cry was just "building character" ??

[uh, yeah, guess that's not turning out so well... -ed]

What is the Dads first name: Jack sr, or maybe Abraham (that would be just lazy), Richard I would Guess Jerk would work too.


I agree people need to think before they name thier kids. That is a bad name. My ex wanted to name our daughter Penny Lane ( no where near as bad just corny). But I knew someone who's dad was named Harry Dick. ( I wish I was kidding)

I had a Coach Head in highschool. His first name was Richard...

Wow how convenient that you and Clooney both seem to just cruise right past the fact the Abramoff also was supplying cash to the looney lefts in the jackass party!!!!!!

Back to the fun, one of my ex clients agencies is run by Dick Daily. Great fun calling up o talk to Dick Daily.

[I'm still a registered Republican. Although Jack's description of himself in his 2003 firm bio is making me rethink that: "Jack is directly involved in the Republican party and conservative movement leadership structures and is one of the leading fund raisers for the party and its congressional candidates." -ed.]

Sorry that someone who shares my fine name is so wrong, but, thanks for playing, other Chris. You're wrong, wrong, wrong.

Abramoff gave money ONLY, SOLELY, to Republicans. However, some of his clients -- that would be the tribes -- gave a small amount of money, comparatively speaking, to Democrats. But Jack Off's *personal* cash went only to Repubs.

Chris #2, that's still giving money to democrats. At least, that's what Rush Limbaugh told me when I ran into him at the pharmacy as he was picking up his (4th Rx of the day) pain killers.

[OK, now I know you're making it up. Rush has people for that kind of thing. -ed.]
