Congress held its first public hearing about U.S. plans for military intervention in Syria on Tuesday.

At some point during the conversation, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) -- who has been skeptical about President Barack Obama's proposal for "limited" action in Syria -- was taking a break to play poker on his phone

McCain has long advocated for military action in Syria, but said earlier on Tuesday that Obama's proposal "might be doomed in the long run." McCain said he will support Obama's request to intervene in Syria if the move would "reverse the situation on the battlefield."

I'm not sure what the big deal is.

McCain knows more about what's going on during this process than anyone here does. He's seen similar actions being discussed plenty of times. If I was him and heard it all before, I'd probably get a little bored too.

When I have my 6+ hour meetings at work I find myself playing Euchre on my iPhone about 4 hours in because at that point l know what the hell I'm doing and they are basically just repeating themselves.
