Cartoon #242: “Bush-Abramoff Photos”

Title: Bush-Abramoff Photos; Text: Secret White House Photo: George W. Bush meets Jack Abramoff(Photo of Bush shaking hands with a hatted Abramoff, and reaching for a bag of money Abramoff is handing him with his other hand.)

The Bush administration refused last week to publicly release five White House photographs showing Bush posing with Jack Abramoff and his family. Abramoff peaded guilty to bribing Republicans in Congress. Though Bush denies knowing him, suspicions remain that Abramoff was as chummy with Bush as he is with several other administration officials.

Yes, I know this cartoon would be funnier if Abramoff was presenting Bush with a giant check. But Al Franken thought of that joke first.
