Jack Abramoff
I've felt kind of bad for this Jack Abramoff character ever since he's been in the news. I actually heard the story 4 years ago because a friend of mine knows this guy who was one of Abramoff's partners and he told me about how rich they got from lobbying for these Indian groups to keep exclusive rights to their casinos. It sounded pretty legit at the time; it was a win-win for everyone involved. Anyway, I guess he did some other bad stuff, so I'm sure he's getting what he deserves.

So that being said, I missed the George Clooney's stupid remarks at the Golden Globes, where he said, "Who would name their kid Jack with the last words ‘off’ at the end of your last name? No wonder that guy is screwed up". Well, turns out the person who did the naming has a thing or two to say to Mr. Clooney and he makes Clooney look like a complete jerkoff. This takedown of George Clooney by Jack Abramoff's Dad is perfect.

My son was named after my beloved departed father. His name, too, was Jack Abramoff. And, were he alive today, would be standing firmly behind his namesake, as his entire family and many more true friends than you will ever know.

Not that it matters to you, I am sure, but the worst part of your tirade is that it played out in front of many young people, including my sweet 12-year-old granddaughter, one of Jack’s five children. Jack did not waste his time watching the garbage spewing from your mouth, but his daughter did. You drove her to a fit of tears. Are you proud of that?

The rest of the letter it is pretty good and it really makes Clooney look like a heel.
