The Daily Show pwns McCain on his opposition to repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

Meanwhile, Politifact determines McCain has done a "full flop" on the question of gays serving openly in the military:

Three years ago, McCain said that he would "consider seriously changing ['Don't Ask, Don't Tell']" should the administration's top brass say it was a good idea. On Feb. 2, 2010, those officials showed up in McCain's committee room and said just that. Yet McCain's statements — reiterated by Buchanan — make it clear he hasn't budged. So we rate this a Full Flop.
