Senator McCain... you should be taking Syria talks much more seriously.  Yesterday when the Senate Foreign Relations Committee were debating the extent of the United States involvement and use of force in Syria, the Arizona Senator was caught playing games on his cell phone -- poker to be exact:

At first this looked like an internet hoax.  There's no way a man of his stature would ever disrespect the seriousness of the proceedings.  Also... there's no way a man of his age could figure out how to play internet poker on an iPhone.  But here's his official Twitter response:

Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing - worst of all I lost!

Yikes.  Usually I would find a way to defend McCain... but this is a pretty big mistake.  What's the point of even being in the room if you're not going to pay attention?  If the hearing wasn't so serious no one would care.  But he's someone that could take this country into war.  That's the difference.
