With poli-pundits already trying to make the ‚Äô08 election a catfight between Hil and Condi, we here at Wicked Chops Poker, a federal political inaction committee, would first like to say that there‚Äôs nothing sexier than a woman in power‚Äîunless of course that woman happens to be either Hilary Clinton or Condoleezza Rice.
I mean we seriously can‚Äôt have a fugly former first lady who I swear has a bulge in her suit pants or a gap-toothed secretary (‚Äúof state‚Äù) become the leader of the free world, can we now?
Alright I‚Äôm being a bit of a chauvi-pig here and it probably is ruining my chances at a Supreme Court nomination, or maybe not, but I don‚Äôt want to get off track here. The purpose of this post is not for us to engage in senseless partisan bickering or playful slagging of powerful ladies. We are here today my friends to officially declare our support for the Next President of the United States of America: Phil Gordon.
The son of a mill worker and a believer in two Americas (oh sorry, that was from my ‚ÄúWhat Not to Say Over and Over Again if You Ever Want to Be Prez‚Äù notes). Ok, start over. A native of Stone Mountain, Georgia, a former National Merit Scholarship Finalist, a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology, a successful author and TV personality, a top professional poker player and skilled bridge player, and a very tall, tall man, Phil Gordon stands up for every person who believes that playing poker is not only a privilege but an inalienable right for all Americans from Sea to Shining Sea (as well as for undocumented workers from Mexico).
Yes, Mr. Celebrity Poker Showdown has proven himself to be politically inclined and a skilled orator before legislative bodies on matters close to our hearts. This past March, Gordon visited the Minnesota State Capitol to lend support to legislation authored by our other
Anyway, the bill went on to become law, and Gordon is now campaigning for Kleis, who is seeking to become the mayor of St. Cloud. Gordon is even expected to appear at a rally for Kleis on Monday at the Granite Bowl.
In what many have said is the new millennium‚Äôs ‚ÄúI Have A Dream‚Äù speech, or at the least, a 21st century version of the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer‚Äôs ‚ÄúI‚Äôm Just a Caveman‚Äù spiel, Gordon proclaimed during his testimony in March:
‚ÄúLegalizing this game of skill and making the pleasures of the game easier for all to enjoy is a worthy pursuit. The Supreme Court Justices have a regular poker game. It is said that Richard Nixon financed his first campaign for public office with poker winnings. Government need not protect us from social poker.‚Äù
