Retire, @SenJohnMcCain.

If John McCain doesn’t like long Senate meetings trying to give McCain’s fellow-Senators the information that they’ll need to decide whether we’re going to bomb somebody, well, that’s easily fixed.

As the hearing continues, our ace photographer Melina Mara reports she spotted Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) “passing the time by playing poker on his iPhone during the hearing.”

They indeed have video proof at the link – as well as McCain’s tone-deaf ‘apology.’ God save me from Senators with entitlement issues*.

  1. Some folks are only here to be examples of what not to do.

    Sen. McCain appears to dominate that category.

  2. Come now Moe, are you telling me you’d rather listen to John Kerry and Chuck Hagel bloviate, rather than playing poker on your smart phone?

  3. I dunno Moe, I think I have to disagree on this one. Not on McCain retiring, but I think your description of this as “long Senate meetings trying to give McCain’s fellow-Senators the information that they’ll need to decide whether we’re going to bomb somebody” is incorrect. These are designed to give the President cover for his upcoming actions, and nothing more.

    1. Umm, you may be right about the intent of the meeting, Skip, but .. McCain is there, they’re there .. why isn’t he “speaking truth to power”?

      After all, bombing is something he knows a *lot* about…

  4. I don’t doubt that those meetings get boring. I have sat in many boring meetings. But I have never been so impolite as to play video poker during them.

  5. Perhaps someone at Pfizer could find some money to get John McCain doing commercials ala Bob Dole?
