A Hundred Grand Don't Buy What it Used To...

I did not watch or listen to ChimpBoy's press conference this a.m. (there are limits to what I can stomach before lunch, while sober), but I am amused by some of the headlines this afternoon. One of the stupidest, most assinine "privacy" moves by Bush & Co. is to refuse to release any pics of Bush with Jack Abramoff. I mean c'mon, guys. What are you afraid of? According to Bush, he hardly knows the guy-

"But I've never sat down with him and had a discussion with the guy," Bush said. "I frankly don't even remember having my picture taken with the guy. I don't know him."

Fair enough. Except that Jack Abramoff was a "Pioneer" during Bush's election campaign, meaning he donated a hundred grand. That means one of two things- either the President is a liar (well, ok, he is, but let's ignore that for a moment), or all the guys who donated mucho bucks to the Bushy campaign so they could have access to the President were sold a bill of goods. I.e, they were lied to.

Liar, or liar?
