Considering what other politicians have been caught doing with their iPhones, America is lucky that the only thing going on in Sen. John McCain’s lap during today’s U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing was a game of poker. McCain brushed off the “scandal” with a tweet, noting that the meeting was more than three hours long.

Poker’s a pretty good metaphor for the gamble the Obama administration is taking with its handling of the Syria situation, but we can’t help but wonder: what are #McCainsOtheriPhoneGames that help get him through those other long, boring meetings?

Kerry Crush? That sounds real.

McCain confirmed to a reporter that it was indeed poker that kept him amused during that long meeting.

McCain might have lost his poker game, but at least we got a good hashtag game out of it.
