Abramoff's dad bashes Clooney's 'ridiculous attack'
The father of controversial Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff is responding to actor George Clooney for what he's describing as a "glib and ridiculous attack" on his son.
Frank Abramoff, in a letter addressed to Clooney and sent to The (Palm Springs, Calif.) Desert Sun Thursday, said he was watching the Golden Globes Monday night when Clooney, during his acceptance speech for best supporting actor, thanked Jack Abramoff "just because" and made a comment about the lobbyist's name.
"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," Clooney said during the internationally televised awards show.
In the letter, Frank Abramoff furiously defends the name, saying his son is named after Frank's father. In the two-page letter, he calls Clooney's act a "lapse in lucidity" and an "obscene query."
It's sad how liberals like George Clooney will never learn that insulting people and engaging in narcissistic hyperbole to get your "point" across will never work with the American public. And because they're so blinded by hatred for anyone who disagrees or opposes their agenda, liberals will not only continue to bathe in ignorance, they'll continue to make less of a mark where it matters most: holding public office. It's their close-mindedness that prevents them from accepting the fact that two-thirds of the American voters in this country do not think like they do. It's their close-mindedness that prevents them from realizing that the re-election of George W. Bush told the world that more and more people are being turned off by their agenda.
As for George Clooney, it's a well-known fact that he's a bad actor who gets by on his good looks and charm. His movies do not make any money and the one good role he's ever had (as "Dr. Ross" on E.R.) only became popular because the excellent writers on that still-successful show played to the sole strengths Clooney has as an actor: his good looks and charm.
For the Left, Clooney is a latter-day Jane Fonda: a proud liberal and another non-talented "actor" who can parlay their physical acumens into fame because as people like Pamela Anderson continues to prove, Hollywood values looks over talent. While Clooney may speak from the heart, he comes across as stupid when he makes infactual comments concerning politics and like a fool when he bows to his fanbase and makes leftwing conspiracy lies like "Syriana". In other words, he's a typical liberal and like Fonda, conservatives would be wise not to take Clooney seriously as an actor, as an activist or as a human being.
