Skip to comments.Leave John McCain Alone! "Poker keeps me sane"
Posted on 09/05/2013 12:36:25 PM PDT by lee martell
John McCain has been criticized for being caught playing a solitaire poker game in his cell phone, while attending a meeting on the possible war coming in Syria. We all know John is a bona fide RINO of the first order. His daughter Meagan is the same way. Pretty Meagan expresses her pretense at ambiguity like Daddy does, by selling out to the other side. The McCains remain media darlings of the left, because they can usually be depended on to bash and trash members of their own party.
I keep waiting for a Jump the Shark Moment when other voters will see him as I do, able to help but more likey to impede or aid in the destruction of any true conservative. The exception seems to be with Sarah Palin. Nowadays, the two do not openly criticize each other. There is mutual respect. Now, back to the POKERFACE scandal, on this, I gotta give John McCain a pass. Even in very serious situations, one needs to lighten up just a little bit. At least he wasn't (to out knowledge) cracking politically incorrect jokes about Muslim on Muslim violence. McCain, momentarily easing the tension in his mind is not the biggest problem of the hour. One of the biggest problem of the day is dealing with a president who openly lies to the public and is not called on it heavily and repeatedly. I speak of when President O said; "I never set a Red Line, the American People did!!" Don't look at me, I'm just the Presdient.
I’m a canfield solitaire kind of guy.
Ok who wants to tell him.
It’s not working.
My first thought...
He used to play marbles until...
Are you logged on?
whatever poker may be doing for the good Senator, keeping him sane isn’t included
I have an honest question.
Is McCain such a big pork barrel manna for Arizona that his constituents are happy with the largess and can’t afford to vote against him?
Or, is Arizona so riddled with liberals, voting illegal Mexicans, California transplants, etc. that the state-war is lost?
What the hell keeps these citizens (I use that word lightly) voting for him? TELL ME!
I seem to remember Sarah Palin detailing dumping a high-ranking employee who was constantly playing games on his PDA. McCain doing the same thing must have driven her crazy.
I think everybody did.
I would like to know if he has any accounts that he plays using real money, which is illegal... Because Congress made it illegal. I think Frist put it in some bill years ago and virtually collapsed a real industry that employed real people.
Well sorry about that kind of 2 different topics in my rant, but, I would like to get this clown recalled for not doing his job.
Old Man, Do Your JOB! You are on OUR time and OUR money playing online poker DURING an important hearing. Disgusting!
Recall his @$$ Arizona, this is your chance.
I did not know this until now, but there is evidence that McCain is a gambling addict.
John needs a poker name such as Amarillo Slim had.
Phoenix John or Arizona McCain or Juan Phoenix or ???
John McCain and the word sane isn’t that an oxymoron?
Needs to take up chess, then.
You're mocking me, aren't you?
Video game Texas hold’em on my phone keeps me from running out to Vegas thinking I’m going to get rich playing poker.
I would have figured McInsane as an Angry Birds kind of guy!
Just think about how much worse he could be if her weren’t playing poker...
Lol. Indeed, the jokes just seem to be writing themselves of late.
Angry Wacko Birds.
Arizona Fats or ???
Can hardly wait until Chubsy-Ubsy (Megan) pipes in on this to tell us how awful we are...
That never gets old.

Assuming of course, if your reply was comment worthy.
The insane thing is that McStain thinks he’s sane.
People of AZ. This man is BEGGING to be retired. Please, prove to the rest of the country you are smart enough to hear his cry.
Been awhile since you visited the eye doctor, hasn't it?
How about retiring and picking out your headstone you bastard.
Phoenix John or Arizona McCain or Juan Phoenix or ???
John? It’s not working...
I think he and Linda have very well funded war chests.
Anyone remember the paranoid/wacked out Major Flagg from M.A.S.H? That’s who McCain reminds me of-the man is flakier than Kelloggs.
At last, he’s admitting to fragile sanity.
Hmmm, hadn't thought of that. One of the corrupt congos from MA, John Tierney (D), is finally under some sort of investigation. (Perhaps you saw Pelosi's recent tap dancing about her colleague?)
I say finally, because his B-I-L skipped the country for running internet gambling. Patrice, his wife, got a conviction with very minimal sentencing for laundering ~$7M for her brother.
Oh, and I think the brother still runs some internet gambling sites out of the Caribbean.
Perhaps the NSA gave BHO the goods on the "maverick"?
It’s not doing its job.
Hard to say which pol is more embarrassing these days but mcCain is sure in the race.
Yep, I was thinking that too. I’m sure he voted to make it illegal for the rest of us, but he probably skirts the law and plays for money online himself.
McCain is a blood-thirsty ghoul. He actually enjoys war. He was insane long before the prison camp.
It’s so easy for these old bastards to send young healthy men to fight senseless wars. McCain won’t lose and arm or a leg in the Syrian war.
Although he might lose those in Vegas.
McCain....just another poster boy for TERM LIMITS!!!
Retirement might keep him sane, too.
