Instapoker (video edition)

Am feeling very video-ish this evening … I may or may not explain why later (but it has something to do with particle physics, Ronald Reagan, and the now-defunct Superconducting Supercollider). Anyhow, have a look at some of the more relevant poker vids I’ve come across in recent days:

NOTE: These come from Bill Rini, Change100, Wicked Chops, and other link-clicky sources.

Rep. RON PAUL (R-TX), opposing anti-online gambling legislation …

Rep. BARNEY FRANK (D-MA), making some pretty strong arguments on why banning online gambling (heretofore called the UIGEA) would set some pretty bad precedents …

The MCLAUGHLIN GROUP declaring 4-1 (with PAT BUCHANAN as the lone dissenter) the UIGEA as bad legislation and insisting there’s no way it will pass …

ALT: “Wrong!

And here’s an intelligently crafted creative endeavor (by the “Association of Professional Casino Webmasters”) outlining the hypocrisy of Sen. BILL FRIST (R-TN) and Rep. BOB GOODLATTE (R-VA) …

Click here to see the other UIGEA videos created by these folks.

This kinda random fun one shows LEE JONES, poker room manager at PokerStars, taking on Frist with a big stick …

Another politician speaking out — Rep. SHELLEY BERKLEY (D-NV) making the most of her one minute at the mic …

And last but definitely not least, check out this (sorry, non-YouTubed) clip from The Daily Show revealing why GEORGE BUSH clearly doesn’t play (good) poker, but does understand collusion.
