David Letterman Is Unhappy With John McCain

One heartbeat away from death (hey, Tina Fey said it, I didn’t) presidential candidate John McCain was supposed to have been on David Letterman’s show last night. He bailed in a phone call at the last second claiming he was halting his campaign and rushing off to the airport to look after America’s economic crisis. Except he didn’t, and actually went to go be interviewed by Katie Couric.

Letterman wasn’t jazzed by this maneuver. He had Keith Olbermann on instead and spent a good portion of the program mocking McCain. He even put up a live feed of McCain getting his makeup done for the Couric interview, exposing his old man lies.

“Need a ride to the airport?,” David mocked.

I think McCain is probably trying to enact damage control after Tina Fey Lite’s disastrous interviews. I also think that saving the economy is a bad excuse. What the hell is he going to do? Quickly invest somewhere? That’s like when I banged in sick for work and gave “shark attack” as the reason.
