Looks like the site went live, so all you political junkies and degenerate gamblers – whip out your credit cards!!!
Poolitics.com offers ideologues of all stripes and colors the ability to put their money where their mouth is by entering real-money predictive contests (Pools) – with topics ranging from the content of Bush’s acceptance speech at the Republican national convention to if/when Osama bin Laden will be captured.
Each Pool poses a question about the future outcome of an event or issue in the news, and offers entries covering all of the possibilities. Once an outcome is reached, the jackpot is distributed among those who purchased entries representing the correct prediction. Each Pool also features an embedded thread for users to discuss and debate the topic at hand.
