Tancredo bolts on Markos (with video)

Tom Tancredo got upset with Markos while they were appearing on MSNBC today. Here's the video (05:14). Tancredo objected to Markos' mention of his draft deferment during the Vietnam War. Here's what Wikipedia has to say on this issue:
As a Republican student activist Tancredo spoke in support of the Vietnam War. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado he became eligible to serve in Vietnam in June 1969. Tancredo has said he went for his physical, telling doctors he had been treated for depression, and eventually got a "1-Y" deferment[6].
I believe the technical term for Tancredo is "chickenhawk." Jed Lewison posted this on Kos:

"Chickenhawk Tancredo storms off set after Markos confronts him on veterans health care."
