The entities that comprise Wicked Chops State Lotteries, LLC, have finally figured it out. We now know why our beloved state lotteries are exempt from the federal prohibitionist gangbanging that nefarious acts which we we detest, like online poker and sports wagering, are not.
It’s not because ultra-right wing religious conservatives like President Bush don’t like games such as poker…it’s because they don’t UNDERSTAND games like poker.
During a recent press conference concerning the North Korean nuke tests and other pressing international issues, Bush compared his strategy in dealing with these "evil-doers" to an optimal poker strategy, stating:
"…one has a stronger hand when there’s more people playing your same cards…"
Um. Uh. Ok.
