Jon Stewart and John Oliver have a brilliant take on the military “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, including John McCain’s complete flip-flop on the issue:

And Stephen Colbert also weighs in hilariously:

    Ahh, I remember it like it was yesterday…choosing to like girls. I was five years old, in my kindergarten class. I looked across the room of about 25 kids. The room was split almost evenly between boys and girls, and I had my choice! I could decide right then and there to like one of the dozen cute little girls, or make the choice to pick boys.

    After careful perusal of the room and very thoughtful (for a 5-year-old) consideration, I decided to be heterosexual.

    Oh I know what you’re thinking. But Sam, what about your subsequent style choices? Wouldn’t you have been better served choosing to be gay? Remember the mid- to late ’80s when your curly hair was flowing long and party in the back, but all business up front? Would you have made that choice if you had decided 15 years earlier to like boys instead of girls?

    And what about the motorcycle jacket you thought was cool your freshman year of college? Rob Halford notwithstanding, no respectable gay man would have made that choice to match the mullet, right?

    But I think I ultimately made the right choice. Sure, I buy some of my tight, athletic fit tee shirts from an openly gay website in Seattle. But they told me that straight, metrosexual men are welcome to purchase their products as long as we don’t mind the provocative adverts. And the attractive men in the ads DO give me something to work for at the gym.
