Sen. Rand Paul's point in questioning was exactly on the money to make him the absolute darling of the media: this is not a hearing to determine a timely response to the atrocities committed by Assad and his use of chemical weapons, it is all about whether Obama "wins" or "loses".

… and McCain is, and will always be, a dick.

<bleh>

Er, Dave, McCain was interviewed on CNN and he said it was him! Said he lost thousands of dollars!

But I'll keep looking for a video and send it to you via snail mail so you can study it closely and report back to us. wink

When he learned of the picture, McCain posted a flippant response to Twitter. “Scandal!” he wrote. “Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing – worst of all I lost!”

While he may have made up his mind on the strike (he said yesterday he is confident in the direction the White House is moving), McCain’s game playing projected a certain lack of seriousness about a major strategic military decision. And, when some on Twitter saw his tweet, they lashed out in response:

“Haha, you’re right!” wrote Digg’s David Weiner. “It’s absurd to expect someone who pushed us into two, now maybe three wars to give his full attention!”

“OUR LEADERS ARE SHAPING THE COURSE OF HISTORY,” wrote Carlo Johnson of Brooklyn, New York.

“Yes, we shouldn’t expect our Senators to pay attention for 3 whole hours. It’s just bombing another country, after all!,” added astronomer and author Phil Plait.

After all
what's the point of listening
if you've already made up your mind? Right?
