Forget Those Photographs, Bush Just Needs Abramoff to Shut Up

But apparently shutting up is just not part of Jack's plea deal. While the White House pulled all the strings they needed to in order to keep those photographs of Abramoff at the White House under wraps, Jack was out there chatting about his meetings with Bush.

When asked about meeting Abramoff, Bush has maintained that he can't remember ever meeting him, and if it was in a meet & greet, it was so brief that who'd remember. Yup, the old I just can't remember answer. Always a winner.

But, apparently Jack doesn't like that answer. No doubt his ego is brused by the leader of the free world denying having even said more than hi to him. What to do? Well write to Kim Eisler of Washingtonian Magazine, of course (what, that wasn't your first thought?). In an email to Eisler, Abramoff said that Bush "has one of the best memories of any politicians I have ever met." (ok, so grammar isn't his strong suit). "The guys saw me in almost a dozen meetings, and joked with me about a bunch of things, including details of my kids."
