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.
