(Newser) – Jon Stewart and his team have a message for John McCain: It gets worse. The Daily Show correspondents (with special guest Sean Hayes) delivered a very special PSA to McCain with that message last night, warning him that if he continues to fight Don't Ask, Don't Tell, someday he'll be featured as the villain in the documentary about the movement—20 years from now, when gays are openly serving in the military.

Of course, the PSA (a spoof of the "It Gets Better" campaign) came after Stewart delivered an impressive takedown of McCain's ever-changing views on the policy: First he wanted military leadership to agree to change the policy (they did), then he wanted a study done (it was), then he decided he didn't like that study. As for his wife, who recently filmed and then reneged a message against DADT, "she, while supporting the NOH8 campaign, also stands by her husband's stance on Don't Ask, Don't Tell. She's against what Don't Ask, Don't Tell does, but she's for Don't Ask, Don't Tell," Stewart summed up. "Boy, no wonder they have so many houses, they need them to keep all their different beliefs in."

John McCain is making a mistake just like he made a mistake with his vice president pick He will not be remembered as a marvick but as a coward and a old fool. Does he know his daughter maybe gay, not sure just a feeling about her.

This story illustrates a basic flaw in American politics: money will buy you a Senate seat. It cannot be used to buy integrity, or honesty, or even bravery. All money can do is put you in the Senate election after election so that you can collect protection money from all the corporations and political king-makers you can possibly appeal to. I'm looking at you, too, Ron Johnson. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

Yes, John McCain is a coward. But this story really just illustrates that Cindy McCain is a coward.
