It Hit Me Like A Ton Of Playing Cards

I hope you won’t mind me picking on Hillary Clinton again this afternoon, but having grown up with a father in the casino business, I cannot resist noting how badly she mangled a gambling idiom at the townhall meeting in Lorain, Ohio today.

One questioner asked her about the inequity of the tax code, specifically how the rich aren’t paying their fair share, so the burden falls on everybody else.

Clinton talked about how she empathizes, especially as somebody who grew up in a middle class family. She should have left it at that. Instead, she kept going.

“The deck is stacked against the middle class,” she lamented, “and under President Bush, that deck has gotten even bigger.”

Stacking, of course, is a way of cheating in card games whereby one player arranges the cards in the deck to his advantage. I can assure you that the size of the cards is not a factor.

Clinton has had a rough couple of weeks, but perhaps her luck would change if she hit the crap tables and rolled herself a jackpot.
