"[DeLay and Abramoff] forged political ties, but the two men never became personally close, according to associates of both men."
Whether or not the Bugchaser and Jackoff enjoyed family barbecues together or held each others' dicks in the clubhouse shower after 18 holes is, of course, irrelevant.
But what's pathetic is that Steno Sue repeats the "associates"' claim as fact without bothering to question, or test, that assertion.
Old stenographers never die, they just spin away.
Also of interest is Dana Rohrabacher's defense of Jackoff: "Words like bribery are being used to describe things that happened every day in Washington and are not bribes." That quote should be nailed to Rohrabacher's forehead every day, and the Justice Department should haul Rohrabacher in for a debriefing under oath, ASAP.
Update: It gets even worse.
