John McCain's Face When General David Petraeus Passes Out During Hearing: Priceless
General David Petraeus, commander of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, passed out during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing this morning, but the most amusing part of the incident wasn't a seasoned general fainting during questioning, it was the face of the man questioning him as Petraeus' head hit the table.
That man was Arizona Senator John McCain.
Check out the video after the jump.
McCain was asking Petraeus about a timetable for troop withdrawals from Afghanistan right before the general went down for the count.
As you can see in the video, "The Maverick's" mug goes from conversational, to concerned, to freak-out mode in the matter of about four seconds.
Petraeus was fine, though. He later blamed fainting on not eating breakfast and dehydration, not McCain's tough line of questioning.
