    Default David Letterman vs. John McCain: round two

    David Letterman unleashed his most extensive commentary on his recent battle with John McCain Thursday night, re-explaining the situation and adding in news about their recent talks to have McCain appear on the "Late Show" when he is in New York for the third presidential debate.

    "Now, in an attempt to save his campaign, they're talking about coming back," Letterman said, adding that McCain offered to bring Sarah Palin with him. "But they're being squirrely. Politicans can be squirrely. Because we have a date picked. We do this show every afternoon at 5:30. He wants to do the show at 5.

    "So one we have no guarantee he's going to show up, period. And we've kind of already rearranged our schedule on his behalf to save the economy, right? By getting that big-headed kid [Keith Olbermann] in here to talk about the politics. You know what I'm driving at? I just don't know if we can trust him.

    Transcript:


    Now here's this thing with John McCain...you know a couple of weeks ago, John McCain was supposed to be on the show. And at the last minute he calls me up -- and I've got a lot of respect...you get a call from a senator -- you get a call from a guy who is a bona fide war hero -- all of a sudden, you know, your lips start to vibrate. So I said "Sure, whatever you want." And he says, "Look, Dave, the economy is about to crater." It's about to "crater," his word. "And I have to rush back to Washington to save the economy." And so it made me feel puny. So I said, "OK, Senator, do what you have to do. Rush right back to Washington." And then I hung up and I felt like a patriot. I felt like I had done my part.


    And he was supposed to be on the show like an hour later. So now, we're in a hole but everybody has to pull together in economic hardship times. So we all pull together and we get that guy with the big head from MSNBC. What's his name? Keith Olbermann, yeah. Giant head. So he comes over. He's good. He's very good.


    So now it turns out, not only did he not rush back to Washington, he spent the night here in New York City. He went on Katie Couric...he was on Conan...he was on Regis...he was everywhere.


    So now, in an attempt to save his campaign, they're talking about coming back. You see what I'm saying? So we said, "Sure, we would love you to come back." And even on the phone, he said, "I'll bring....Sarah." But they're being squirrely. Politicians can be squirrely. Because we have a date picked. We do this show every afternoon at 5:30. He wants to do the show at 5.


    So one -- we have no guarantee he's going to show up, period. And we've kind of already rearranged our schedule on his behalf to save the economy, right? By getting that big-headed kid in here to talk about the politics. You know what I'm driving at? I just don't know if we can trust him.

    And by the way, I don't need to remind you that the road to the White House runs right through here."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/10/10/david-letterman-on-john-m_n_133631.html

    Go Dave. He's spitting mad and angling for a fight, doggonit!

    Ni, DAve shouldn't let it go. It's indicative of how McSame operates. He knew he'd get a hard time from Letterman so he blew him off and lied. Talk about character....
