John McCain got caught playing poker on his Iphone today during the hearing regarding waging war in Syria.  If it was any other hearing it probably wouldn’t piss me off, but since McCain is pushing the President’s intervention in Syria the least he could do is pay freaking attention when it is being discussed.

Sorry Senator but I fail to find the humor.  YOU are supporting the President’s request to put Americans in harms way. YOU  should know better than anyone what that means. How dare you poke fun of the fact that you were goofing off during the hearing on Syria. YOU owe all Americans an apology.

If you can’t pay attention during a hearing about a war you are pushing then perhaps you should find a different line of work.
