If You're Planning to Watch Letterman to See McCain Tonight...

...sorry to disappoint you, but he canceled because he's headed back to Washington to work on the financial crisis. Only problem is, he lied, he still hasn't left for D.C. as I understand it and Dave is not too happy! Actually, I'd like to change the first sentence of this post because I think the Letterman show will be much more interesting and entertaining tonight than it would have been had McCain actually honored his promise and shown up. http://theragblog.blogspot.com/2008/09/mccain-cancels-letterman-pissed.html "His critique reached a high point when he learned that at the very moment Mr. McCain was supposed to be on the couch next to him being interviewed, the senator was at the CBS News center three blocks away in Manhattan, getting ready to be interviewed by the CBS News anchor, Katie Couric. Mr. Letterman ordered his director to put on a live feed from that location, which showed Mr. McCain getting made up to go on with Ms. Couric. “He doesn’t seem to be racing to the airport,” Mr. Letterman observed. After listening to some questions from Ms. Couric, Mr. Letterman said, “Hey, John, I’ve got a question: You need a lift to the airport?”" Gee, McCain could have sent Sarah Palin in his place but didn't so Keith Olbermann filled in. Any thoughts? Do you think McCain's talk about suspending his campaign and even postponing Friday night's Presidential debate is kind of like pushing th panic button, or maybe the reset button since things aren't going too well in his campaign at the moment? Let's discuss it! Annie

Letterman AND McCain? Be still my beating heart. If he'd been on, I wonder if Australian TV might have moved the show a little closer to prime time than 1 a.m? Probably not, that would make it clash with something even more rivetting, reality TV. God there are times I wish I wasn't an insomniac. Lash

It could possibly be that. I cannot wait until the election is done and overwith. It is coming down to the wire and I am so tired of hearing people talk bad about each other. Some say they will do this and that now, but do just the opposite when they are voted into office.

According to the MCain camp, Obama called his office and left a message requesting that John McCain get in touch with him. They have the call logged.There was no subject matter discussed. I find it hard to believe that Obama would give that message to a staff member. If indeed that was what he was going to suggest.

kennyrose does not like when you step on her feet by actually participating in one of her own discussion and dont actually agree with her but boy does she scout every "liberal" discussion just so she can put her two cents in it without even staying on topic but will do anything just to campaign for McCain or Palin. You get called a typical liberal by her and Im really starting to get sick of this word, LIBERAL--kennyrose, how about you define a liberal IN YOUR OWN WORDS, because I think many of us would beg to differ with you as it does not describe the average citizen looking to make a living, hold a mortgage or even make ends meat with rent, raise a family, honestly living--oh wait, you already believe many struggling to raise their families are giving birth to too many children anyway and should stop having kids and thats the solution (just read up on her comments, its ridiculous).

"According to the MCain camp, Obama called his office and left a message requesting that John McCain get in touch with him." And we all know the McCain camp would never tell anything but the truth...lol! Annie

I don't really was Letterman but I did hear something last night on MSNBC about this. I didn't hear everything. Should we be surprised that McCain lied? lol That was hard to type without laughing myself.

My guess is the whole thing was a parody and to put more into it is a bit silly.

Hmmmm...I'm afraid you lost me here. What "whole thing" was a parody? McCain was indeed scheduled to appear on Letterman tonight and he indeed canceled, saying he had to head back to Washington to work on the financial crisis but instead he went a few blocks down the street to be interviewed by Katie Couric. It is what it is and if you don't think much should be "put into it" that's certainly your prerogative. Letterman is angry about it and that doesn't come from some liberal blog or columnist but from what I understand right from the horse's mouth. Annie

Where exactly does it say that he's mad about it? I could find no reference of anything on it other than what was done on his show and I'm still not convinced it wasn't a parody.
