Bush to Give Away (part of) Abramoff Donations

Jack Abramoff raised at least $100,000 for Bush's 2004 re-election effort, earning him the honorary title "pioneer" from the campaign.

Now that Bush has been caught with his paw in the honeypot, pudgy White House spokesfag Scotty McClellan said the Bushies plan to give "part of" the $100,000 to charity.

What's this? Bush gets caught with dirty money and he thinks donating part of it after the fact will somehow exonerate him?

WTF? Can this guy's balls get any larger?

Bush's balls? Eeek.

Do turtles have balls? I saw him on TV today and he has this new thing where he scrunches down and pokes out his neck to answer questions, looking like a little snapping turtle.
Not a handsome look for the Nitwit in Chief.

Say, where are the democrat recipients that the MSM and Scotty are saying abound in the "list" of friends of Abramoff?????

Karen Zipdrive said...

I've heard of one Democrat mentioned but can't recall the name. Whoever he is, he's as suspicious as the rest for influence peddling as far as I'm concerned, and he should go down with the rest of them if anything shady is proven.
Just being on the same list casts him in a dirty light.

dusty said...

Bush is only giving back a pittance..the amount donated by Jackie A and his wife personally.

dusty said...

THe Dem I think you mean is Byron Dorgan D-North Dakota

Karen Zipdrive said...

When Abramhoff squeals I hope he can cite specifically what these crooks did for the money. I want to see the quid pro quo in action.

Lulu Maude said...

Yes! It will be so educational to see How The System Works. And it will be such a dandy new addition to that old civics textbook staple, How a Bill Becomes a Law.

Assholes. Selling their crappy little souls for Super Bowl tickets.

dusty said...

They keep tossing up the Clinton Impeachment as the most recent use of the I in the hell can you compare lying about a blowjob to lying about WMD's and Plamegate?

I ask that all they got?

Karen Zipdrive said...

That's all they got. Yep.
But then people watch NASCAR and love it, so it's hard to say what might get the lemmings Bush counts on to snap out of their comas.

Kate said...

There is a LONG list of Democratic recipients of this same bribe money. I just saw it a few days ago and about puked.

Looks like he was covering alllll the bases...
