Fund-Raising: Take It to the (West) Bank

Money meant for the inner city went to fight the intifada. What donors to Jack Abramoff's charity didn't know.

By Michael Isikoff
Newsweek
May 2 issue - The pitch from superlobbyist Jack Abramoff was hard to resist: a good way to get access on Capitol Hill, he told his clients a few years ago, was to contribute to a worthy charity he and his wife had just started up.

It's embarassing for them that this is being talked about. But that's all.

These fuckwits should be hung from streetlamps.

I agree the terrorist "fuckwits" (whatever that means) should be hung from streetlamps.

There. That is great. Now all you guys have to do is decide which fuckwits are which and get the city to reinforce the structial design of streetlamps.

If the streetlamp breaks under their weight, they get off with a warning. I call that "compassionate conservatism."

You can take the boy out of the ol' west, but you can't take the ol' west out of the boy.

How about this for an idea. We strip off their clothes, put barbecue sause on them and hang them. If the lamp post breaks the fuckwit falls into a fenced off pen full of hungry starved snarling dogs!!!!!!!!!!!
