On last night’s “Colbert Report,” host Stephen Colbert took on the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy with his usual poignant comedic outlook.

Colbert addressed the issue during the show’s “The Word” segment. Last night’s word was “Army of Mum.”

Colbert takes on DADT

Colbert has an interesting solution to the military’s gay-dilemma.

“For years we’ve let gays be soldiers if they stayed in the closet,” the comedian said during the segment. “I say we flip it. Allow them to be openly gay but they have to stay in the closet about being soldiers. “

There’s also a great clip of Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) that proves he’s losing his marbles.
