Posted on 01/20/2006 1:36:59 PM PST by Mike Bates
The father of embattled lobbyist Jack Abramoff has lashed out against George Clooney for what he calls a "glib and ridiculous attack on his son during the Golden Globe awards presentation.
Clooney, during his acceptance speech for the best supporting actor award on Monday, thanked Jack Abramoff "just because and made a comment about the lobbyists 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 told the audience.
Abramoffs furious father Frank, in an open letter sent to the Desert Sun newspaper in Palm Springs, Calif., said his son is named after Franks beloved father, and scolded Clooney for his "lapse in lucidity.

George Clooney was so over when he left ER -- funny that no one told HIM!
I saw this earlier on Yahoo, but it hadn't been posted here yet. Pretty juvenile attack for Clooney to make "on air", but I guess that's not surprising.
Let me stoop to his level: Clooney ends in "looney" - so it all comes out in the wash.
You can always count on dumbasses like Clooney to say something incredibly stupid or vulgar every time they flap their gums.
Clooney can rot in hell. I'll never forgive him for his insentive comments about Charleton Heston.
Phonetically, his name is "See looney."
From George C. Looney...
I'm with you. I will never see a Clooney movie, watch a Clooney show, or support him in any other way. The man is scum.
Wow. Clooney's inane, even for Hollywood. And that's inane even for Clooney.
As for name calling, how about Looney Clooney?
George cLOONEY is an idiot. That comment he made wasn't even funny. And he STUNK as Batman!!
Sort of a horse's a$$, isn't he.
In other shocking news, Tootie still has a crush on him. This is a man who thought Attack of the Killer Tomatos would be a good career move.
Now, had the joke involved Abramoff meeting with Sink Emperor B.J. Clinton, he might have been onto something.
other gems from the narcissistic one
After doing One Fine Day and playing a pediatrician on ER, I'll never have kids. I'm going to have a vasectomy.
America can't beat anyone anymore.
Do you want the truth or the politically correct version? The truth is that I go plastic, it's so much easier. And I like to put the bags over my head at night when I sleep, which I think all the kids at home should try. Kidding!!
I decided if I walk outside and get hit by a bus, everybody'll say, 'He crammed a load into 34 years.'
I don't believe in happy endings, but I do believe in happy travels, because ultimately, you die at a very young age, or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It's a mean thing, life.
I don't care. Charlton Heston is the head of the National Rifle Association. He deserves whatever anyone says about him.
I don't like to share my personal life... it wouldn't be personal if I shared it.
I grew up in the world of bad television, on my dad's sets and then as a young schmuck on dating shows and so on.
I resolve not to drink liquids before donning the Bat-suit.
I'd think,'In a relationship, we should never have his kind of fight.' Then, instead of figuring out how to make it work, I looked for a way to get out of it. The truth is, you shouldn't be married if your that kind of person.
I'm a Method actor. I spent years training for the drinking and carousing I had to do in this film.
I'm certainly the last person to give advice on, well, anything.
I'm not smart enough and I don't know enough about what's going on.
I'm only two years older than Brad Pitt, but I look a lot older, which used to greatly frustrate me. It doesn't anymore. I don't have to fit into that category and get trounced by Tom Cruise and Brad.
I'm really white trash.
I'm the flavor of the month.
People thought I was Tom and Nicole's bodyguard. They'd come up and go, "Is it okay if I go up and ask for an autograph? It was good. I'd charge 'em three bucks a person. Yeah, you gotta make some money off of that."
Run for office? No. I've slept with too many women, I've done too many drugs, and I've been to too many parties.
The funniest thing is that all the things every director goes through, I thought I could shortcut, but there was no getting around those issues.
The government itself is running exactly like the Sopranos and they sit back and they make deals. And they say okay, 'I'm going do this: France, you're getting the pipelines.'
The only failure is not to try.
There's no connection between al-Qaeda and Iraq.
They say I was a bad Batman, that it was my fault, that I buried the franchise. But the truth is, it was a big project. I was pretty intimidated in that world. I did the best I could in the situation I was given.
We moved away from what we were going after which was the al-Qaeda and there's no connection between al-Qaeda and Iraq, which we know, we spent a lot of time trying to prove it and it didn't happen. And we're going to go into a war and we're going to kill a lot of innocent people.
We're picking on people we can beat.
When you're young you believe it when people tell you how good you are. And that's the danger, you inhale. Everyone will tell you you're a genius, which you are not, and if you understand that, you win.
You have only a short period of time in your life to make your mark, and I'm there now.
You make a lot of films, do you? You make a lot of films yourself? Yeah, I'd like to see you make a film first before you get to talk about it. What a jerk.
It's amazing what passes for "movie stars" these days.
Looney for sure.
What a himbo.
I despise him for many things but never heard the Charlton Heston comments--can you tell me what he said? You can pm me if you'd rather not repeat it for the thread..
"Charlton Heston announced again today that he is suffering from Alzheimer's."
I've never thought he had any acting ability at all so not watching his junk comes easy for me. The guy has an IQ of 74.
So what are you wearing??
Yeah, Mike's got the gist. I don't remember the exact quote but is was a jab, a sick attempt at leftist humor (an oxymoron, I know), about Heston's condition. It was pathetic, and frankly, unforgiveable, considering that C-looney never issued an apology.
Clowney. Clowny Cloonie Loonie. Clowny Cloonie Loonie had a big fat aunt that used to sell toilet paper for a living. CHEAP toilet paper. Clowny Cloonie Loonie is a homo. Nobody has ever seen him with a woman. Clowny Cloonie Loonie is gay and I don't mean a happy guy.
...and the fact his dad is named Frank kinda added to the joke
BTW, the most-asked question in Internet chatrooms.
Gals just never stop asking that, do they?
Clooney has once again proved he's a looney...and DELUSIONAL on top of that. If he thinks for one little minute this scandal is republican only and this will help the dems...DELUSIONAL and STUPIDITY stands out...again.
You're the only one who really knows, though.
She sure has a great. . . picture of Che there.
The present generation of Hollywood film makers grew up on cartoons and comic books. Which is why their movies sometimes resemble cartoons and comic books.
(close one. . . .)
"I will never see a Clooney movie, watch a Clooney show, or support him in any other way. The man is scum."
Actors are stupid people. Why would you want to antagonize half your customer base with ignorant Moonbat political commentary?
In receiving a special filmmaking achievement award from the National Board of Reviews, actor George Clooney joked that "Charlton Heston announced again today that he is suffering from Alzheimer's."
Clooney still had a chance to apologize for the bad humor day. When questioned about the remark by New York Newsday, Clooney sputtered: "I don't care. Charlton Heston is the head of the National Rifle Association. He deserves whatever anyone says about him."
Return of Belly Girl?
Mmmmm, I think this is a different belly girl, I've been itching to post it and I succumbed. She makes me feel all funny inside.
George definitely was mis-named --- *he* should have been "Jack Clooney".
He should have played "Shallow Hal"
