Sums Of The Pioneers
George Bush is giving away a whopping 6 percent of the filthy lucre with which Jack Abramoff greased his palm.
Abramoff raised more than $100,000 for the Bush-Cheney reelection [sic] campaign, making him an honorary Bush "Pioneer." But the campaign is giving up only $6,000, which came directly from Abramoff, his wife and one of the Indian tribes the lobbyist represented. The money will be donated to the American Heart Association.
(The so-called liberal NYT fails to even mention that fun fact, merely mentioning the 6K and not the additional 94-plus.)
If Bush-Cheenee '04 had invested 94K in, say, KBR or Google, since the 2004 election cycle, it would have cleared a nice profit from the use of Abramoff's Pioneer payola. It probably would have broke even with a 17-month CD.
Meanwhile, Kerry-Edwards had nothing to return or give away.
And the hunt is on for photos of Abramoff slipping Bush some Hanukkah gelt at any of the three Hanukkah receptions Jackoff attended at Bush's invitation.
