John McCain Caught Playing iPhone Game During Syria Senate Hearing

Look, yes, sometimes you've just gotta play VIP Poker during a three-hour Senate meeting about whether or not America should attack a foreign country. War talks are just so boring, you know?

Spotted and snapped by the Washington Post, this is an over-the-shoulder shot of Senator John McCain playing poker during the super-long Syria hearing today. He lost. :(

Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing - worst of all I lost! — John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) September 3, 2013

It's hard work, declaring war. The real scandal is that he's not playing Animal Crossing.


    Please, this is John McCain we're talking about. He would have already decided to support military action before he even knew which country they were thinking about bombing.

      As least we know how good he is at civ V
      -declares war
      -doesn't pay attention

    At least he fessed up? Although there was undeniable (excepting photoshopped [trololol]) picture proof.

    You would think 3 years in a north Vietnamese P.O.W. prison camp would have taught him patience.

    I wonder if any of his opponents in that game were also in that senate meeting.

      Maybe he was playing against Bashar al-Assad. "I'm going all-in".

        Would have been hilarious if it was World of Tanks or something.
