PO’ed Tweeters Pile On John McCain

In the 24 hours since he was caught sneaking a few hands of video poker during a Senate hearing attempting to hash out some way forward on Syria, outraged social media users have bombarded Sen. John McCain with some unequivocally brutal critiques.

The #JohnMcCainIsMoreUselessThan griping has been going full bore since Tuesday, with detractors incessantly firing off unflattering comparisons of the Arizona Republican to, well, everything.

The hit list of wasted efforts includes:

Senate hearings on Syria


President Barack Obama’s foreign policy


The Right


The Left

Elected officials as a whole


His best buddy


His former running mate


Speaker John A. Boehner’s authority


Hell, even this profession got fragged.

All the vitriol proved too much for Joel Ciszewski, who lashed out at all the random haters for ignoring the incredible sacrifices McCain has made while serving this country:

But in today’s click-to-judgment world, you’re only as relevant as your last meme.
