McCain plays poker during "War in Syria?" hearing...

...It may not be "Nero fiddling while Rome burns", but considering that he is pushing America toward a war that maybe a dozen people want (well, a dozen people, plus defense industry lobbyists all over the Beltway), perhaps he should look like he is paying attention when others are discussing the idea...

At Tuesday's US Senate hearing on Syria, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was caught playing poker on his iPhone by an observant reporter from the Washington Post.

Who took a picture ( :) ) -

After the picture started making the rounds on media websites, both MSM and social, McCain tweeted about the incident, attempting to minimize it -

People from all over the political spectrum have been poking a little fun at our Johnny Mac, and perhaps deservedly so.

But everyone, McCain detractors and supporters alike, should be aware that things could be worse.

At least he stayed awake this time.

Unlike, say, during the 2007 State of the Union speech.

Seriously, this is the man who wanted to be president. 

He can't even do the job of US Senator without taking a time out.
