Playing Political Poker

In an interview with ABC News, RNC chairman Michael Steele claimed that his race may be a reason motivating some of the attacks against him. Some people are calling for Steele to resign, after it was disclosed that a trip to a sex club was paid for with RNC funds.

But in a sign that the White House is willing to play partisan poker when given the opportunity, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs remarked “I think Michael Steele’s problem isn’t the race card, it’s the credit card.”
