This is so sad. From Wonkette and ThinkProgress--
An email from Jack Abramoff, about the President:
"HE HAS ONE OF THE BEST MEMORIES OF ANY POLITICIAN I HAVE EVER MET. IT WAS ONE IF [sic] HIS TRADEMARKS, THOUGH OF COURSE HE CAN’T RECALL THAT HE HAS A GREAT MEMORY! THE GUY SAW ME IN ALMOST A DOZEN SETTINGS, AND JOKED WITH ME ABOUT A BUNCH OF THINGS, INCLUDING DETAILS OF MY KIDS. PERHAPS HE HAS FORGOTTEN EVERYTHING. WHO KNOWS."
Or, as translated over at Wonkette: “Yeah, he’s a really great guy! We were totally friends! It’s kinda funny that he says he doesn’t remember me, but you know, whatever. I mean, he’s really really busy and all… it’s not a big deal I guess…”
