McCain personally called David Letterman to cancell at the last minute because Senator McCain was “racing back to Washington.”  That, however, didn’t happen. In his show to air tonight, Letterman shows footage of McCain sitting down a few blocks away from his studio with CBS’s Katie Couric for an interview at the same time he was supposed to be on his show.

David Letterman says he respects and loves John McCain.   “But when you call at the last minute and cancel . . . this is not the John McCain I know.”  

Says McCain shouldn’t quit should let us VP shoulder campaign . . . what’s the problem Letterman asks?  Says, “this doesn’t smell right.  This is not the way a tested hero behaves.”

Dave asks, “Where is McCain’s second string quarterback?”  

Suspending because of economic crisis or because he’s slipping in the polls, Letterman asks.   Letterman then showed a live feed of McCain getting make-up in Katie Couric’s studio instead of “racing to the airport.” 

Letterman took a call from McCain in which McCain claimed he had to race to DC in order to save the country . . . yet, there he was with Katie Couric. 

The show will air tonight, September 24, 2008.

McCain and Palin made time in the middle of the “crisis” for a “spritely discussion” with Sir Bono and Lady Rothschild
Joe Sudbay (DC) · 9/24/2008 09:40:00 PM ET · 

McCain couldn’t get a call into Obama for most of the day because he was busy meeting with royalty. Lots of royalty. He had to meet with Her Royal Highness Lady de Rothschild (she’s the one who called blue collar voters “rednecks” last week). And, McCain also had to make time today for the knighted Sir Bono (well, he’s not “officially” a sir because he’s not English, but he’s still a knight). Bono is, after all, a HUGE INTERNATIONAL celebrity and way, way more important than returning Obama’s call to talk about the economic crisis and tend to all those Americans whining about the economy.
