Talk about “Don't Ask, Don't Tell”
has landed a second woman on Anderson Cooper's The Ridiculist.
Self-described prophet Cindy Jacobs has
joined Cindy McCain, the wife Arizona Senator John McCain, on the
McCain's quick shift on “Don't Ask,
Don't Tell,” the soon-to-be repealed law that bans gay and bisexual
troops from serving openly, first landed her on the list.
Cindy McCain's appearance in a video to
support gay teens sponsored by the NOH8 Campaign suggested that she
disagreed with her husband on the policy. But
less than 24 hours after the video's debut, McCain backtracked,

“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

thousands of birds and fish in Arkansas.
“That's right, gays serving openly in
the military somehow equals massive avian fatalities,” Cooper said
in Tuesday night's segment. (The video is embedded in the right
