Should Meghan McCain have to be the one defending her anti-gay father? We’d argue no — but she’s taken up the cause!

Appearing on The View this morning — after fielding days worth of angry tweets like this one about her father — Meghan says John was arguing the hearings included Adm. Mike Mullen’s “personal account,” while the senator wants “wants military research” into the issue. That, and her father is 73, and old people are stuck in their ways.

Not defended: his hypocrisy. Maybe because it’s indefensible?
