Jack Abramoff gives heartfelt thanks to book party guests.

Party Chatter

“Sometimes it gets a little depressing  to see your picture on the front of the Post.” — Former lobbyist Jack Abramoff in a living room speech at Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson‘s home last night. He called the party “one of the finest evenings” of his life in the past eight years. One thing’s clear: Sure beats federal prison.

“Not a chance!” — Carlson on giving a mid-party tour of his new house.
