You have got to see this. Watch as Senator John McCain has a meltdown in front of the press when The Advocate's Kerry Eleveld and Metroweekly's Chris Geidner start asking him about Don't Ask Don't Tell. McCain literally starts repeating his words over and over like a child does when he claims that the military doesn't investigate soldier's sexual orientation despite the evidence proving otherwise. Check out WonkRoom for a full transcript.

While I'm extremely disappointed in McCain's handling of DADT and I'm deeply saddened by his downright intolerance of gay people I do not think that he "flipped out" at the gay reporters. Hed definitely lost his cool, but he, by no means, had anything close to a meltdown.
