Pokergate: McCain Plays Online During "Debate" On Raining Casual Death on Children in Distant Lands, Then Makes Jokes About It Because, Ha Ha, War

Abby Zimet

Playing Poker While Damascus Prepares to Burn Dept: So John McCain - aka Sen. Angry Grampy - was caught playing poker on his iPhone during a Senate hearing on bombing Syria, which evidently bored him because he already knows we just need to stop dithering and go for it already because what's another ill-considered, citizen-opposed, open-ended war on brown-skinned people, who must know, just like we do, that war's just a game, right? When he got caught, he like totally redeemed himself by tweeting a joke about the "scandal" and how the worst thing was, "I lost!" Ha, good one grampy. Idiot warmonger: May he one day reap what he so blithely sows.

Update: Now he says he doesn't support the Senate resolution because it's not war-like enough for him.
