    Default Washington Politicians are big poker players

    Good story by Politico, which points out how many Washington politicians are poker players. Some of them are behind Barney Frank's efforts to overturn the UIGEA. Some of them are not.

    One of the most notable not in favor of regulating Internet gambling is Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), but he of course believes that the Internet is a series of tubes.

    But at least when he made the metaphor about the Internet being a series of tubes he correctly pointed out that it is not like a dump truck.
