Waxing political again
"And so, by employing the clever strategy of not answering anything properly, and then winking in the manner of a mid-market call girl, she emerged a sort of victor. Despite revealing the intellect and political experience of a whelk." - Rod Liddle the Times.
Sometimes politcal commentary is entertaining. Palin set the bar so low in interviews leading up the debate that she was successful just by showing up and not saying anything stupid. Hence she performed better than expected but not better than Biden. Republicans have now gone to their default position of when all else fails lie about your opponent and get dirty. Its worked before and could easily work again. If betfair had a market on the outcome I'd bet on McCain just so I had something to make me feel better if the Dems managed to screw it up again.
On the poker front I played a couple of SNG's (two seconds) and SWDP at the weekend. Didn't get anything going in SWDP but it was nice to see some familiar faces again including DrP, BamBam, WilW and Res. I've said it before I know, but I'm getting my groove back and autumn/winter season will hopefully be a poker season this year.
