Greg Raymer to Run for Vice President of the U.S.?

Danielle_lloyd_bikini_1In an interview with our favorite Lithuanian-based poker news site, PokerNews.com, 2004 WSOP champ Greg Raymer claimed he's considering a run for the VP spot in the 2008 election, saying, "I am currently talking to some people who run the Libertarian Party about the possibility of running to be the party's official candidate for Vice President of the United States."

Raymer, as you know, was very active in the PPA's fight against the likes of Bill Commu-Frist and his cronies who eventually pushed the UIEGA through the Port Security Bill, so no doubt his election, which would be as likely as John Kerry not coming across as a pompous, elitist ass during a presidential campaign, would be good for online poker. Raymer is also a very large man who would kick the living shit out of anyone who fucked with his money or family, which probably means he'd be tough on terrorist folks, like Al Qaeda and other people with funny beards and dark skin.

It's worth noting that Raymer has apparently improved upon his diplomatic chops after his notorious feud with Daniel Negreanu. When asked in the interview why Jamie Gold hasn't garnered the same level of respect he and Joe Hachem got, Raymer deftly said, "Joe and I did not get respect from our peers with respect to our poker skills until we proved ourselves in later events. Jamie has not had time to do that yet. If he does, he will get that respect."

In other 2008 election news, Phil Gordon, who is as tall as Raymer is large, has yet to announce whether he'll run for President, as we called for more than a year ago. We suggest the two run as a ticket for the sole purpose of shining the spotlight on the online poker issue. And to give us something other than the Jamie Gold lawsuit to talk about.

By the way, the photo above is of Danielle Lloyd. Because she isn't Greg Raymer or Phil Gordon.

I know putting poker in the spotlight is good. I am not sure in this case it would be good thing. After the Frist deal, I became more independent. I am more Republican than I am democrat. I like the republicans economic ideas and I like the democrats social ideas.

Here is my deal though. When I see somebody running on some weird party, by weird I mean not R/D. I question their ideals.

Say if they are running on the Constitional partly. Then I think they are some wacko right winger.

I know this may be a joke, but I hope it has no truth to it at all.
