The point he was trying to make was that legislation's intents and actual results are sometimes quite divergent (such as Prohibition). In this case, he thought the bill would increase likelihood of additional frivolous lawsuits rather than make rights more equal.
I know absolutely zero about the bill they were talking about, so I have no idea whether this was the time to pull out that argument.
The legislation the girl was referring to would have effectively reversed a Supreme Court decision that makes it massively difficult for any employee to uncover, much less take legal action against the scale of discriminatory pay that the Ledbetter/Goodyear case was about. Regardless of whether you agree with the act, McCain is a pussy, and falling back on the old "trial lawyers" argument is not really an answer of any substance. So, in essence, the girl had some balls, McCain has to smear her on the Daily Show of all places by lying about what she said. Our brave, brave war hero.
But, he makes great barbecue, so it's not like you'll see anything about this on the news.
BUT OBAMA MIGHT BE SMOKING AGAIN!!!!!
It's hard to take your opinion seriously when you are a giant fucking tool who doesn't believe two consenting same-sex adults should be allowed to be legally married to one another. In short; fuck you.
"WAAAAH WAAAH WAAAAAH!
I'm oddeye! I'm mad because Billy Buttsex said a year ago that I can't wear a wedding dress with other guys! It makes me so mad that he has standards that he keeps, and believes that morals apply to people other than himself! I will not agree with ANYTHING ELSE THAT HE SAYS, EVER, BECAUSE HE IRONICALLY DOESN'T APPROVE OF BUTTSEX, BECAUSE I'M A CHILD."
Is it an old person thing to call a fourteen year old girl ma'am? Would 'young lady' be condescending?
ok, what do you think makes you sound older when refering to a teenager, ma'am or young lady?
or are you so old now that you wouldn't know
Oh my god, I don't actually know. I'm 22 so ma'am and young lady really aren't appropriate.
This is a great comment, right here. This one right here. I expect this kind of thing from all of you, from now on.

I don't know...how was he supposed to know she was only 14? And he did give her the opportunity to speak her mind--twice.
"I didn't know" isn't a defense. Tee hee.
McCain thinks 14 year old girls are "very attractive." What a creepy old man.

Actually, he came to her rescue. If you saw the vid before this point, people were trying to block her view from the camera; he picked up on that and decided to give her the stage instead.
So we're back to blaming "trial lawyers" for everything?
Wow, McCain is totally not a repeat of Bush!
Seriously, McCain is a horrible person.
"very more much articulate than me with answering"
I can sympathize with her though, that was probably terrifying.
I don't know, having seen it, I do applaud him for actually allowing the girl to speak, regardless of what came of it. And he let her do a follow-up too, which is pretty rad, and very very few politicians would have done the same (see: "Don't Taze Me, Bro")
If the message of the week from the McCain campaign is "John McCain seeks an open dialogue", well - I approve the message.
yeah, um. -1 star for me actually thinking better of McCain after seeing this.
Dear Jon Stewart: Please stop slobbering all over McCain's knob. He's long since stopped being the guy you liked in 2000.
But uhm, yeah, I didn't see anything about McCain trying to humiliate this dame. He actually handled it okay.
How is it attempting to "humiliate" someone by letting them ask a question regarding the statement on the T-shirt they made to attract attention to themselves?

But she didn't ask him that. Wait a minute. A REPUBLICAN TWISTING SOMEONE'S WORDS GET THE VAPORS I AM SHOCKED
