Well, that's just f---ing great.
I mean, 3+ hours is far too long to have to sit around deciding if 50,000 people are going to die. Who needs that BS - am I right, Johnny?

They already got the votes, they all know the outcome. It’s all been decided. Everything else is for show.

I’m sure he was doing the same, or something similar, all during his campaign for President.

I’ve already said here that I’m glad he lost to Obama.

I think the US and Russia would have been heaping piles of nuclear ash if he became President.

Yeah, that'll deflect any criticism, you bat$&!^ crazy old fart. You've had what's left of your mind made up long ago. As long as it gets you on television, right? It's all about you.

Kind of like the last presidential election...

I don’t know about anyone else, but I grow tired of being “played”.

Notice how he mocks the word “Scandal!”, too. John’s turned in to (always has been) quite the Alinskyite.

“Eff” the addled turncoat b*ast*rd.
Just another reason to get him the hell out of the Senate, AZ, ok?

And, yes, the fix is in - the rest is all show.

Even more embarrassing, the Senator was playing poker for PLAY money.

Ever since the gummint nuked online poker a few years ago, in the process killing a huge and otherwise profitable industry, Americans have not been allowed to play with real money.

(Why the gummint has anything to say about what I do with my disposable income remains a mystery, but then we used to call ourselves “free” not that long ago.)

Then again, Congress has the habit of exempting itself from most laws. So do Congresscritters, and senile Senators, still get to play online poker for real?

Lunatic asylum is more like it-if we still had them. Whatever happened to him as a POW permanently scrambled his brain. Sympathy for that got him elected no doubt. Now hes a certifiable brainburn case in government too long so we can add senility to the mix. He`s flakier than Kelloggs time for a nice tie-up jacket and some shock therapy.

Time to give McCain a break from the stress with a code 5150, at least that’s what we call it in California.

Agreed. Utterly disgusting. An elected leader of our country who is supposed to be debating taking us into war and he is playing video games during the meeting. If I said it out loud 100 times I still would not believe it. Unreal.

McCain has finally jumped the shark on live TV. His dementia is finally in full bloom.
