Any talking heads doubting whether "Gekko Jack" and the Hammer are pals should just watch this circle jerk introduction by Abramoff at the 2002, College Republican Conference.
Jack: Never before has an individual who has been steadfast to our principles-risen as high as Tom Delay.
Jack: Tom Delay is who all of us want to be when we grow up.
What principles are those Jack? Ripping people off, using Terri' Schiavo's ravaged body as a political tool, or maybe the Island of Saipan affair that Brian Ross revealed on 20/20? (Al Franken's book has a chapter dedicated to this)These are the high moral principles that all those impressionable "College Republicans" should aspire towards.
