C'mon Now....Baby Needs New Shoes!!

You'd think that having been to Vegas a few times, I'd know the answer to this, but I don't. Does any casino out there allow you to place a bet on a political race?

The reason I'm asking? I'm convinced that Markos Moulitsas Zuniga of the Daily Kos works for Karl Rove.

Seriously.....he's picked a favorite in twenty different elections. How many have won?

None.

Nada.

Zip.

He places his bets, and rolls snake eyes every single time. His latest bum bet was on the California 50 race. The voters had to pick out a new representative to replace Duke Cunningham, the poster boy for corruption. The Kos champion ran on a platform emphasizing that stirring political value of "competence". If there is one thing to definitely get the voters motivated, it's competence....She got whacked by a former lobbyist.

Right now, he's rivaling the Tampa Bay Bucs of 1976-1977, who got an impressive 0-26 record in their inaugural season.

In the Buccaneers' defense, however, they were a rookie team. Kos was and is a well compensated political operative. It's not like he's picking the winner of the National Spelling Bee. As a professional, he should be able to pick at least one guy or gal who can win an election.

So it got me thinking. Maybe I should find out where I can place a bet on a political race, and scrape together a few dead presidents. Whoever Karl Jr Kos supports.....put it on the opposition, no matter how offensive I might find him or her.

I'll rack up a college fund for my little Joey in no time!!

    I'm pretty sure last time I was in Vegas, I saw places you could bet on political races. You can pretty much bet on anything in Vegas.
