John McCain Explains Why He Was Playing Poker on Phone During Syria Hearing - CNN

“Well, as much as I like to always listen in rapt attention constantly with 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.”`John McCain

Wild Thing's comment............

McCain is so arrogant, just like how Obama is, both the same kind of people.
