  1. Using Homeland Security to feed the base.

    If anything represents the complete idiocy of our government officials, it's this rider. Absolutely ludicrous. I think the story forgot to mention that horse racing is exempted, as if there is any difference between gambling on horses and gambling on poker. Obviously, the horsing industry has better lobbyists.

    Fenian, do yourself a favor and list the democrats who came out and blasted this idiotic bill. It'd be a feather in your cap. I'd love to see the quotes from any politician who had the balls to call Frist and Kyl out on this.

  4. In the interest of bipartisan amity, here's a real liberal ripping this bill to a real conservative.

    p.s. - It seems to be an all-purpose, multigenerational GOP scam.

    "The influence-buying practices of all industries have fallen under increasing scrutiny in recent months because of a federal investigation centering on lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who pleaded guilty in January to fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials. His plea agreement (click here for PDF) says an unnamed aide identified only as "Staffer A" received illegal bribes for "stopping legislation regarding Internet gambling." "

    Wait till the lame-duck session of Congress. The last-minute feeding frenzy will make a piranha blush.

    More proof positive that I want some of whatever the folks at Time were smoking when they called Kyl one of the "10 best Senators in America," which he trumpets in every damn campaign ad.

    Kyl was vulnerbable for a while, as well as Arizona Rep. J.D. Hayworth, the former sportscaster who is truly one of the biggest buffoons in Congress. But I think both will survive, thanks to their recent ads claiming that if you vote Democratic, the scary brown people will come across the border, take your job, eat your dog, and marry your daughter.

    Both campaigns have been nothing but red meat from the start.
