Abramoff: For the Record.

To paraphrase Churchill, the plea deal Jack Abramoff just made with the Department of Justice is not the end and is not even the beginning of the end, but may prove to be the end of the beginning. I likely will have little to say about it (unless, of course, I come across some unique or unusual evidence, or espouse some unique or particularly atypical view on the Abramoff affair).

For the record, however, this political and social conservative, and religious Jew (you can call me an "Orthodox Jew" if that is how you would label me) now says that the behavior admitted by Abramoff is to be condemned and not condoned. Abramoff has promised to cooperate in ongoing investigations, which means that we can expect significant disclosures about lots of people, including, perhaps, many in high places.

I condemn such behavior, and so should my fellow political conservatives, and my fellow Jews.

Let the investigators and the grand jury hear Abramoff sing, and let the chips fall where they may!!

    Let's not set our expectations too high ... the IBSS has a way of disappointing even the most reasonable expectations.

    "Inside the Beltway Self-preservation Society"



    I have gotten entangled with and stymied by the organization and its members many times, but until now, I have never figured out what its name is.
