Old poker face

Say, isn't John McCain supposed to be the one who doesn't even know how to use a computer, let alone a smartphone app?

Sorry, John McCain's not sorry! The 77-year-old Arizona Senator was caught on camera by a photographer playing a poker game on his iPhone during the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing concerning Syria in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, Sept. 3. Rather than apologize, McCain joked about the incident on Twitter.

"Scandal!" he tweeted Tuesday. "Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing -- worst of all I lost!"

And he tweets. too! Sorry, John, you've been busted, so quit the joking and say you're sorry. Gotta know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em.

A senator not paying attention to the debate. Shocking.
