Well, well, well

Malaysia's ex-Prime Minister Mahatir Mohammed has come forward and said that Jack Abramoff was paid 1.2 million dollars (Mommy, can I be a lobbyist when I grow up?) to set up a meeting between him and one George W. Bush.

And to make things even more interesting, Mahatir says that he isn't the one who actually PAID Abramoff, and he doesn't know who did.

But the Heritage Foundation - an extremely influential right-wing think tank - was the group that persuaded him to meet with Bush.

Which, to my mind, makes it pretty damned likely that they are the folks who paid Abramoff.
