Joe Barton Maybe Should Rethink Using Poker Terms To Discuss Important Legislation


Or not. Me, I know poker, and I love incorporating its jargon into my daily life. Nothing more fun (nor more dorky) than working phrases like “re-raise” or “clock” or “rebuy” into your day. But if you’re Joe Barton, and you’re trying to be taken seriously, you don’t want to end up looking silly on Wonkette or YouTube. Therefore, you may want to think about how you use the term “the nuts.”
