The Asshole Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree


By now you probably heard that George Clooney made fun of lobbyist/soultaker and Boris Badenov dress-alike Jack Abramoff at the Golden Globes.

What you might not have heard is that Abramoff's father, Frank Abramoff, who did such a sensational job instilling values in his sonny boy, fired off a letter to Variety in outrage. Outrage, I tell you! (As Variety points out, of course, George doesn't actually work for them, so Abramoff, Sr. is apparently a bad father and a dumbshit.)

Abramoff the Elder says that George's words were "deeply hurtful to many innocent and decent people."

Let me repeat that:

Jack Abramoff's father feels that George Clooney was "deeply hurtful to many innocent and decent people."

I wonder how Frank Abramoff feels about keeping women as slaves in Saipan and forcing them to have abortions, as Jack Abramoff and Tom Delay helped do? Would that be considered "deeply hurtful to many innocent and decent people"?

I can only hope Frank will put his crayon to paper once more, and write a book on how to raise a fine, upstanding young man like Jack. I hope if I have a son, he can bribe and steal and cheat and lie and enslave and be indicted someday, too... instead of being talented and honored and awarded and raising millions for charity like that bastard Clooney!
