Clooney Made Her Cry
Clooney made her cry

Link: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060123/ap_en_mo/people_abr...

Excerpt:

The father of Jack Abramoff says George Clooney's off-color joke about his son's name
at the Golden Globe Awards made the lobbyist's 12-year-old daughter cry.

"Are you proud of that?" Abramoff's father wrote. "Shame on you."


Clooney's father, Nick, told the newspaper:

"I understand what it is like to have one's son criticized in public.
I'm as proud of my son as Abramoff is ashamed of his."

7. And * didn't get up off his ass on 9/11 because he'd "scare the kids."
It's a basic right-wing tack -- use children as your "human shields" when stating your case.

Despicable. :puke:

Edited on Tue Jan-24-06 05:31 PM by yourout
visit her dad in JAIL!

That and she will probably loose the 6 XBoxs, 5 computers, and hundreds of other
toys aquired by his daddys little venture.

9. That kid has a lot more to cry about than that
He dad's a crook. I wish she'd shed some tears for those 12-year-olds who are being forced to do labor in the Marianas Islands. It'd be nice if she'd crank out a few for the ones who have been forced into a life of prostitution and who have had forced abortions and those that will have them in the future thanks to dear old dad.

If she's really lucky she can cry into a hankerchief made by one of these sweatshop kids.

Faux tears for the camera, just like Mrs. Alito. Boo-hoo.

10. Well - Abramoff is making George Bush cry. Scotty too. Such bullshit
that we should have empathy for a lying thief and none whatsover in the talking points for the soldiers to are wounded or die. I am so sick of this "trying to teach tribalism". We weep for someone rich & powerful who does a crime but we ignore the innocent who die all over the world.. be it a woman from AIDS in africa because she was so poor she had no choice who she slept with and no choice of the birth control methond that would save her life.. under Bush...

Just tribalism. A wounded soldier is out. But a rich man who broke even rich men's laws... we wail for him.

What exactly do they think having a son who goes into politics means? I mean Mr. Abramoff Sr. bankrolled his son's rise in the Repuke Party. Me thinks the decision to give up privacy went away when Mr. Abramoff Sr. bought his son power. That is how it works.

Of course - perhaps Mr. Abramoff Sr. is a neocon. Which would mean he wants power without anyone knowning about it. Without having to take responsibility for their actions.

11. "But what will we tell the children?" the selective sense of shame
of the Republicans.
IT IS NEVER ABOUT THEIR OWN DEEDS, ONLY ABOUT BEING CALLED ON IT

12. Apparently the GOP strategy is to have wives and daughters cry
or say they cried to provoke sympathy. Shameless!

20. Cowering men and crying women-typical bully reactions
The men cower and the women cry. We knew all along that this is what the wingnuts were bullies and their reactions to the dem punchback isn't all that surprising.

13. I guess what Jack did to the kid is just a side-note
You know, setting a fine example by getting convicted on corruption charges and all. Gramps has it straight. Not.

14. How the hell is this news???
Did Abramoff's dad call a press conference or something? And who really cares? It's like saying the personal gardener is upset.

15. It's in the entertainment section.
It's big news here in my town.

We're holding a "Make Adramoff's Kids Spew Milk From Their Nose" rally today.

18. I can't imagine the kid would cry
because she knows her dad is a crook and a liar.

I feel bad for the kid, but they are using her.
Which is typical.

21. Clooney on receiving his Best Supporting Actor award for Syriana
Edited on Tue Jan-24-06 06:30 PM by AtomicKitten
said he'd like to thank Abramoff, but said he had to wonder what kind of parents would name their kid Jack with a last name ending in "off."
