Washington Post photographer Melina Mara snapped a photo during a live blogging sessions of Senator John McCain playing a game of poker during a 3+ hour long senate debate on Tuesday as he was “passing the time by playing poker on his iPhone during the hearing.”
McCain has always been a fan of going to war and it appears as though the comments of his associates were not important enough for his full attention. He even posted a very interesting statement on Twitter which further questions the seriousness of some of the officials making these kinds of decisions.
