Texas Hold 'Em

So, Britain's folded.

Denmark's out.

Australia's still in only because John Howard's so drunk that he's stumbled away from the table to try and find a hooker.

That leaves just George "Bring 'Em On" Bush, facing impossible odds and an opponent that's already proven it isn't bluffing.

His decision of course?

"All in!"

Too bad he's gambling with the lives of American kids.



I'd try to sustain and extend your poker metaphors with clever uses of the terms "gut shot straight," "big slick," and "nut flush draw," but I didn't get much sleep last night and I'm not feeling too clever yet this morning. Typing this took five minutes of sitting here trying to remember the word metaphor.

I totally agree, since he isn't gambling with the life of anyone he personally knows, he does not care, Oil, that is all that seems to matter in the W. House.

How 'bout this for a nice old-fashioned, Texas-style, metaphor:

"What a fucking jackass."

And now we have Canada's new PM with his nose up Bush's ass. Wadda go Harper!
