John McCain Caught Playing Poker During Syria Hearing

Sometimes senators need a diversion from even the weightiest of topics. For Senator John McCain during Tuesday's hearing on Syria, it was a game on his iPhone.

The Washington Post posted a picture taken during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing and reported that it shows the Arizona Republican playing poker on his phone. Only his hands and iPhone were visible. Shortly afterward, McCain came clean in a sarcastic tweet posted on his Twitter account that began with the word, "Scandal!" McCain wrote that he had been caught playing on his phone during a hearing that, he quickly pointed out, exceeded three hours.
