Dreadful simile of the week

Like a loser at the Las Vegas gaming tables, Edwards has placed most of his remaining chips on Saturday's primary in South Carolina, the state where he was born and spent part of his childhood.

Lot of that going on out in Las Vegas last week, was there?

I'm all for thoughtful, well-maintained in-house stylebooks, by the way, but this seems a nice place to point out that the AP has decided that paying a casino to take your money should henceforth be known as "gambling." Not "gaming." As AP style decisions go, that's rather a good one.
