"Dammit. It was sent to Susan on her RNC pager and was not supposed to go into the WH system."

I just can't get enough of this stuff, it's better than the funnies!

"In one case, Mr. Abramoff sent Ms. Ralston an email on her RNC account asking her to 'pass on to Karl that Interior is about to approve a gaming compact ... for a tribe which is an anathema to all our supporters,'" and requesting "some quiet message from WH that this is absurd," Waxman wrote, quoting from the Ralston and Abramoff email exchange. "This email was forwarded to Jennifer Farley in the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, who apparently then warned one of Abramoff's associates about the dangers of leaving a record of their communications. According to an email Mr. Abramoff received from his associate Kevin Ring: 'Your email to Susan was forwarded to Ruben Barrales and on to Jen Farley, who read it to me last night. I don't know what to think about this, but she said it is better not to put this stuff in writing in their email system because it might actually limit what they can do to help us, especially since there could be lawsuits, etc.... Just letting you know what she said.'"

Abramoff responded to that exchange, according to Waxman, writing in an email: "Dammit. It was sent to Susan on her RNC pager and was not supposed to go into the WH system."

Interesting. The WH thought they had shut down the Abramhoff scandal and here it is recharging. We all know there is much, much more to all these scandals. I sure do hope we get some criminal charges out of it. Oh, and I apologize profusely, I tagged you in a meme. (ducking)

Now, you didn't expect the WH to get anything right... did you?

Mary, I think we're gonna need a bigger penetentiary.
Hi Ziem! My only expectation of the bush administration is that they will continue to implode and self destruct.

I agree Paul. Unfortunately, they're going to take this country with them.
