I'll give Abramoff's daughter something to cry about!
Speaking after accepting a Golden Globe award for his role in Syriana a couple of weeks ago, George Clooney made a crude observation about lobbyist/convict Jack Abramoff's name. Abramoff's father reacted by excoriating Clooney in a letter to the Palm Springs Desert Sun, outraged in part because the lobbyist's daughter had been watching the Golden Globes and had burst into tears upon hearing her father lambasted.
You know what should really make Abramoff's daughter cry? The fact that her Orthodox Jewish father worked very, very hard to advance the political fortunes of congressmen who are working very, very hard to build a sort of a Christian theocracy in the United States—Jews (and other non-Christians) be damned.
