Bush Don't Know Jack 

Oh, Jack Abramoff? Well, of course he knows Jack Abramoff. We thought you meant Jack Shit:

The above collage is purportedly comprised of several pictures retrieved through archive.org after they had been scrubbed from the Reflections Photo site. Think Progress is now reporting that Washingtonian editor Kim Eisler saw several additional photos of the President posing with Abramoff on a visit to the recently-indicted uberlobbyist's home:
Press Secretary Scott McClellan has said that if photos of the two together exist, they are shots taken at “widely attended” Hanukkah receptions in 2001 and 2002. But according to Eisler, none of the photos in Abramoff’s office were taken at Hanukkah receptions.

One photo at Abramoff’s home depicts Bush shaking hands with Abramoff in the Old Executive Office Building, which is adjacent to the West Wing of the White House. Another photograph shows Bush with Abramoff at what appears to be the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington. A third photo, which previously has not been disclosed, is of Abramoff’s wife with Laura Bush.
(Thanks to Zemblan patriot K.Z. for the link AND the gag!)
