First it was Alec Baldwin raging over Words With Friends, now it’s John McCain and online poker!
A photographer snapped a photo of John McCain playing online poker during yesterday’s Syria hearings on Capitol Hill. McCain isn’t even attempting to get evasive:
Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing - worst of all I lost!—

He elaborated later on CNN: “As much as I like to always listen with rapt attention constantly (to) remarks of my colleagues over a three and a half hour period, occasionally I get a little bored and so I resorted. But the worst thing about it is I lost thousands of dollars in this game.” He added that it was fake money. Yeah, sure.
At least now I don’t feel so bad about playing Candy Crush during the morning show!
You can see the picture that caught him red handed here.
