KISS: Keep it Simple, Stupid.

I'm sorry, but this is the first time since the WaPo Blog fiasco that anyone on our side has been specific about the record. Quibbling about the difference between Abramoff and his clients is not the same as this:
Mr. Abramoff says he represents only those [clients] who stand for conservative principles.... ''All of my political work,'' he said, ''is driven by philosophical interests, not by a desire to gain wealth.''... Mr. Abramoff's background and personality hardly fit the mold of the typical Washington lobbyist.... Most unusual, [Abramoff] is, by his own description, a committed ideologue.... tries hard to persuade his fellow Washington lobbyists to give more generously to the Republican Party, its candidates and conservative organizations. He expects to raise as much as $5 million this year, he said, and plans to donate as much as $250,000 personally. Mr. Abramoff's rising influence is also illustrative of... [how] success can be built on a strong relationship between a lobbyist and a single, powerful lawmaker... Mr. DeLay...
And the Dems are still awful. Reid is smarmy as a preacher, Gore was wooden as ever in his 'fire-breathing' speech, and Kerry can't even proounce Abramoff's name: Abraham-off?
