Senator McCain may be going through a tough time with this "don't ask, don't tell" thing, but it only gets worse. (5:18)

THERE'S A... I DON'T KNOW IF

YOU'VE SEEN, THERE'S THESE GREAT

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

ABOUT BULLYING GAY TEENS.

ONE RELEASED LAST WEDNESDAY

REALLY CAUGHT MY EYE.

>> BULLYING HAS LED TO AN

EPIDEMIC OF SUICIDES.

>> WHAT'S CONVINCING THESE KIDS

THINGS WON'T GET BETTER.

>> LOOK AROUND.

>> OUR POLITICAL LEADERS TELL

LBGTs THEY HAVE NO FUTURE,

THEY CAN'T SERVE OUR COUNTRY

OPENLY.

>> THAT WAS CINDY McCAIN, JOHN

McCAIN'S RIDICULOUSLY HOT LADY

FRIEND.

IT SOUNDS LIKE SHE'S REFUTING

SENATOR McCAIN'S STANCE ON

"DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL," NOT

THAT JOHN McCAIN IS CLOSED

MIND ON THE SUBJECT.

>> THE DAY THE LEADERSHIP OF THE

MILITARY COMES TO ME AND SAYS,

SENATOR, WE OUGHT TO CHANGE THE

POLICY, I THINK WE OUGHT TO

CONSIDER CHANGING IT.

>> FOR TEN YEARS THE STRAIGHT

TALK HAS BEEN WAITING FOR A CUE

FROM MILITARY LEADERSHIP TO

BECOME JUST THE EXPRESS.

THEN LAST SPRING...

>> THE PRESIDENT ANNOUNCED HE

WILL WORK WITH CONGRESS THIS

YEAR TO REPEAL THE LAW KNOWN AS

"DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL."

I FULLY SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT'S

DECISION.

>> ALLOWING GAYS AND LESBIANS TO

SERVE OPENLY WOULD BE THE RIGHT

THING TO DO.

>> Jon: THAT LOOKED A LOT LIKE

THE MILITARY LEADERSHIP.

>> HE WAS SPEAKING "PERSONALLY."

JUST THIS WEEK THE COMMANDANT OF

THE MARINE CORPS SAID HE DID NOT

WANT "DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL"

REPEALED.

>> Jon: SO YOU GOT GENERAL

CASE AND MULLINS, BUT WHAT ABOUT

GENERAL HALFTRACK OR GRIEVOUS OR

LEE.

[CONFEDERATE MUSIC PLAYING]

STILL, SENATOR McCAIN, BIG

LINEUP OF MILITARY LEADERSHIP.

TIME TO START THINKING ABOUT

REPEAL, RIGHT?

UNLESS THERE IS ANOTHER

CRITERION THAT YOU NEED TO

SATISFY YOU.

>> WE'LL GO THROUGH A YEAR LONG

STUDY THAT WILL HOPEFULLY ALSO

HAVE THE FEELINGS OF THE MEN AND

WOMEN THAT ARE SERVING.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

THE MILITARY LEADERSHIP AND A

STUDY.

IT'S THE MAV RICK WAY, SPEND A

YEAR DECIDING WHETHER SOLDIERS

DESERVE FULL RIGHTS BUT HALF

HOUR ON WHO WILL BE YOUR

PRESIDENTIAL RUNNING MATE.

OH, BUT WAIT, IT'S ALL ABOUT

PRIORITIES.

McCAIN SAID HE WANTED TO DO

THAT STUDY A YEAR AGO AND IT'S

BEEN ALMOST A YEAR.

>> THE PENTAGON STUDY ON "DON'T

ASK, DON'T TELL" SHOWS THAT MORE

THAN 70% OF PEOPLE IN THE

MILITARY THINK THAT IT WOULD BE

OKAY TO END THE POLICY.

>> Jon: SO McCAIN, I GUESS

WE'RE GOOD NOW.

>> I WILL LISTEN, AS I'VE SAID

FOR YEARS, TO OUR MILITARY

LEADERS, AND NOT A STUDY THAT IS

LEAKED.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: BUT THE LEADERSHIP

ALREADY AND THEN THE...

>> ONCE WE GET THIS STUDY, WE

NEED TO HAVE HEARINGS AND WE

NEED TO EXAMINE IT AND WE NEED

TO LOOK AT WHETHER IT'S THE KIND

OF STUDY THAT WE WANTED.

>> YOU WERE THERE WHEN THEY

PROPOSED THE STUDY!

YOU WERE SITTING IN THE ROOM

WITH THEM.

WHAT KIND OF STUDY DID YOU WANT?

>> I WANTED A STUDY TO DETERMINE

THE EFFECTS OF THE REPEAL ON

BATTLE EFFECTIVENESS AND MORALE.

>> Jon: THAT WAS THE TITLE OF

THE STUDY!

AS FOR CINDY McCAIN, HER

P.S.A. CAME OUT LAST WEDNESDAY

AND IT TOOK HER ALL THE WAY

UNTIL FRIDAY TO DECLARE A

TWITTER THAT WHILE SHE SUPPORTS

THE NO HATE CAMPAIGN ALSO STANDS

BY HER HUSBAND'S STANCE "DON'T

ASK, DON'T TELL" BECAUSE SHE'S

AGAINST WHAT "DON'T ASK, DON'T

TELL" DOES BUT SHE'S FOR "DON'T

ASK, DON'T TELL."

NO WONDER THEY HAVE SO MANY

HOUSES.

THEY NEED THEM TO KEEP ALL THEIR

DIFFERENT BELIEFS IN THEM.

HONEY, WHERE'S MY IMMIGRATION

POLICY?

[IN FEMININE VOICE]: IN PALM

SPRINGS.

[IN MALE VOICE]: WHERE'S THE WAR

ONE?

>> [IN FEMININE VOICE]: YOU LEFT

IT AT THE BEACH HOUSE.

AS I SEE JOHN McCAIN DOING

NOTHING TO REPEAL "DON'T ASK,

DON'T TELL," IT REMINDS ME.

>> SENATOR McCAIN, WE KNOW

YOU'RE GOING THROUGH A TOUGH

TIME WITH THIS "DON'T ASK, DON'T

TELL," TRUST ME, IT GETS WORSE.

>> THE HEAD OF THE MILITARY

DOESN'T AGREE WITH YOU.

YOUR OWN WIFE DOESN'T AGREE WITH

YOU.

YOUR OWN WIFE.

HOLY [BLEEPED].

>> SHE'S VERY ATTRACTIVE, BUT

THAT'S IRRELEVANT TO THIS

DISCUSSION.

>> BUT IT GETS WORSE BECAUSE

SOONER OR LATER GAY PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO WIND UP SERVING, AND

THEN 20 YEARS LATER THEY'LL MAKE

A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT IT, AND YOU

KNOW HOW EVERY DOCUMENTARY ABOUT

SOME BIG SOCIAL CHANGE HAS A BAD

GUY.

>> THE GUY WHO FOUGHT IT TOOTH

AND NAIL LONG AFTER IT WAS

OBVIOUS THE EVERYONE ELSE WHAT

NEEDED TO BE DONE.

YOU KNOW, THE GEORGE WALLACE

CHARACTER?

>> THAT'S GOING TO BE YOU.

>> SAYING STUFF LIKE BLACK

PEOPLE DON'T BELONG IN A WHITE

MAN'S MILITARY.

>> OR I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH

CATHOLICS.

>> I JUST DON'T WANT ONE IN THE

WHITE HOUSE ON A SPECIAL POPE

PHONE TO ROME.

>> OR A LADY ASTRONAUT, WON'T

THE GAZANGAS GET IN THE WAY.

>> AND THE NARRATOR WILL SAY,

"SENATOR JOHN McCAIN FOUGHT

THE MOVE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY,

USING OBVIOUS STALLING TACTICS."

>> ALTHOUGH THEY'LL PROBABLY

PICK SOMEONE WITH A BETTER VOICE

THAN JOHN.

>> YOU KNOW WHY, WYATT, GO

[BLEEPED] YOURSELF.

>> IT WILL BE PART OF YOUR

LEGACY.

>> IT DOES GET WORSE.

>> IT GETS
