$25,000 could get me...

Either a sit-down with George W. Bush or one of these. I know which I'd choose.

The New York Times is running a story about a guy that chose the other option.

The chief of an Indian tribe represented by the lobbyist Jack Abramoff was admitted to a meeting with President Bush in 2001 days after the tribe paid a prominent conservative lobbying group $25,000 at Mr. Abramoff's direction, according to documents and interviews.

The payment was made to Americans for Tax Reform, a group run by Grover G. Norquist, one of the Republican Party's most influential policy strategists. Mr. Norquist was a friend and longtime associate of Mr. Abramoff.
Thanks for 'returning dignity to the office of the President'. You're doing a heckuva' job.

Abramoff, the man no one in DC remembers meeting, dining with, etc., seems to be enjoying his payback moment.

Hope he's taking necessary security precautions so he doesn't get "disappeared".

I love the current VW ads ("German engineering in DA HOUSE, JA!").
