Calling Cindy McCain's recent reversal on repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” “one of the most brazen flip flops we've seen in years,” Anderson Cooper kicked off a new segment titled The RidicuList with McCain as its first recipient.

After starring in a video where she appeared to break with her husband, Arizona Senator John McCain, over repeal of the law that bans gay and bisexual troops from serving openly, the 56-year-old McCain backtracked the following day, tweeting to her followers that she stands “by my husband's stance on DADT.”

For 24 hours Cindy McCain's appearance in an It Gets Better Project video to support gay teens sponsored by the NOH8 Campaign suggested she disagreed with her husband on the policy.

In the video, which stars a bevy of celebrities, McCain blames discriminatory laws and religious leaders for driving gay teens to kill themselves.

“Our political and religious leaders tell LGBT youth that they have no future,” McCain says.

After other speakers say that “these laws that legislate discrimination teach bullies that what they're doing is acceptable,” it is McCain that delivers the line, “Our government treats the LGBT community like second-class citizens – why shouldn't they?” and as an example she adds, “They can't serve our country openly.”

“Holding two completely contradictory positions at the same time? That doesn't make any sense,” Cooper said on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. “She's for it and against it at the same time. It's kind of ridiculous.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

“She's against what 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' does, but she's for 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,'” Jon Stewart said on Comedy Central's The Daily Show.

“Boy no wonder they [the McCains] need so many houses,” he added. “They need them to keep all their different beliefs in them.”
