Laugh Test or Smell Test? Republican's Fail Both

''A year ago most people around Congress couldn't tell you who Jack Abramoff was.''
Speaker of the Freaking House Denny Hastert—Abramoff? Never heard of the guy...

"Well, I don't know what you mean by Senate liaison to the, quote, "K Street Project." I'm not aware of any Senate liaison job that I do for the K Street Project."
Senator Rick Santorum—The guy who personally ran the K-Street meetings and determined strategy. Also gets more re-election money from lobbyists than any other incumbent senator.

Abramoff had "a few staff-level meetings" at the Bush White House, presidential spokesman Scott McClellan said Tuesday. But he would not say with whom Abramoff met, which interests he was representing or how he got access to the White House."

Just go to The Carpetbagger Report and scroll. Steve's on this stuff like, er, a carpet...
