"Life is tough. It's even tougher when you are stupid."

"My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the World. I hope you will join with me as we try to change it." ... quote from Barack Obama.

What is with these politicians? Obama has gone from a huge favorite to be our next President to perhaps not even getting the Democratic nomination. Don't the speech writers examine the words before the candidates say them? Along with Obama's Pastor, Reverend Wright, sayings like this have really damaged Obama. I have a lot of concerns about this election and I'm not sure at this point who to vote for.

Hillary Clinton has made a lot of mistakes, also. They say she misspoke about a few things, but they were out and out lies! My favorite joke about Hillary is about the man who went to Heaven. St. Peter welcomed the man through the Pearly Gates and the new Saint noticed some clocks on the wall. When he asked St. Peter what they were he was told they were lie clocks. Every time a person lies his or her clock would move five minutes. St. Peter said: "That clock never moved; it was Mother Theresa's. She never told a lie. The next one is Abe Lincoln's. He told only two lies in his entire life." The new guy said, "That's nice. Where is Hillary's clock?" St. Peter said, "Jesus has it in his office. He is using it for a ceiling fan."

If the Democrats don't get something resolved, the Party is going to be so divided John McCain will win the election. This is going to be the most interesting election in my lifetime. Daniel Negreanu and I were exchanging emails about the candidates until I finally gave up because he won't alter his position that Obama would be what this country needs. I would be interested to know if he has changed his thinking after the past few weeks. I'll give him a call. It might be time to make a bet with him.

For some reason it looks like Doylesroom attracts the country western stars that play online poker. Just a few weeks after Blake Shelton and his band asked us to come to their concert on Freemont Street I got another invite from Dierks Bentley who is a really hot country-western singer to come to the Red Rock Casino and Hotel for his concert. Todd, Hoyt Corkins, Ken Hale, and Anjela and her friend came along with me and Dierks stopped his autograph session to come over and greet us and he wanted to take some pictures with us. He said he enjoyed playing at DoylesRoom and was a big fan of poker. He said the players at our site were easier than any place else he had tried. Of course, we already knew that because we don't have very many Pros. I was really amazed at Red Rock. They have a huge facility and it is really nice. The place was packed and Dierks and his people really put on a good show. I looked for Phil Helmuth and Clonie Gowan but couldn't find them. - DB
