Homophobe John McCain who has embarrassed himself horribly with his shifting goalposts and blatantly ridiculous excuses for blocking the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell had this one coming from Jon Stewart.

Ladies and gentlemen, Jon Stewart presents... Gaypocalypse Now. Here's more from TPM.

Jon Stewart Rips John McCain Over Don't Ask, Don't Tell:

Jon Stewart last night lampooned Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) continued stalwart opposition to repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell, even after the Pentagon released its review indicating that a repeal of the ban on openly gay men and women would have little to no effect on military readiness.

"McCain's like one of them Japanese soldiers living on Okinawa in 1949, still fighting because he doesn't realize the war ended a long time ago," Stewart said. "And, for some reason, even though he's been alone for years and years on this island, doesn't like gay people."

I particularly liked the analogy between McCain and The Black Knight from Monty Python's The Holy Grail. Very fitting. Stewart also slammed "maverick" McCain for flip-flopping on some of his previous statements, although it wasn't as good as this segment I recorded for the site back in September of 2008 -- Daily Show: "John McCain: Reformed Maverick"
