McCain: I'll never surrender in Iraq; protesters protest

The Rocky live-blogged John McCain's speech at DU today:
Within 10 minutes of Sen. John McCain’s speech on foreign policy at the University of Denver he was interrupted by several protesters four separate times –- each chanting “end this war” repeatedly until they were removed.

The crowd quickly drowned them out by chanting “John McCain. John McCain, John McCain.”

McCain responded each time, drawing a standing ovation when he said, “By the way, I will never surrender in Iraq. Our American troops will come home with victory and with honor.”

The Republican nominee for president also chastised the protesters, telling them that they are interfering with others’ rights to free speech.
Well, duh.

Update: Here's video of the speech. Protesters at around 1:46, 4:31, 6:46 (where McCain makes the "never surrender" statement) and 10:15.

Update II: Git!
