    I just don't get why he didn't tell Letterman the truth - that he needed to do a serious interview at this point instead of making up that stupid story. Now he looks like a total idiot since he's the one who actually called Dave and told him the airport bs story. Why LIE about something so trivial - even Letterman said he would have understood.
    as privileged as a whore...victims in demand for public show, swept out through the cracks beneath the door, holier than thou, how?

    Letterman will not let go of this either. If I were Dave I would not invite him back. He has held to the fair invite rules. McCain had his chance and ran away like a frightened little boy while making up lies that made him look even more afraid.

    ^^^You're right on the money. McCain simply lied to Letterman. How insulting. Just because Letterman is a late-night talk show host and comedian doesn't mean he's stupid. If McCain had asked to change the outline of the interview, Letterman would have done that for him.

    Letterman is more upset at the blatant lie than the cancellations. I don't blame him for being pissy about that..

    I just saw clips of Letterman's ripping into McCain and Dave was on fire! This is going to bite McCain hard in the butt. He's sinking his own politicial ship.

    Thumbs up

    McCain's move appears to have locked Obama's lead for now:
    AM Trackers Suggest Poor Reaction to McCain Announcement

    We'll have polling data rolling in all day, of course, but the very early returns suggest that the public may not have responded in the way John McCain might have liked to his announcement yesterday that he was "suspending" his campaign to attend to the financial crisis.

    Two polls have been released so far that were conducting work in the field yesterday. The Research 2000 poll has Obama jumping from +4 to +6, on the strength of a +7 in the daily sample conducted yesterday. And Rasmussen Tracking has him moving from a +2 to a +3, his largest lead over McCain since 9/6.

    Gallup, Hotline, et. al. may well turn turn out to show McCain gains, so we'll see how these numbers look in a few hours. It should be a fun day for poll-watchers.

    UPDATE: Hotline has Obama at a +4, down from a +6 yesterday. Battleground, which as you may have noticed has a pretty strong (3-4 point) Republican lean, has him at -1, one point better than yesterday.

    Oh my God!! I bet the POW thing was going to be his "October surprise"
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Maybe McCain will fall out and faint during on live TV. People will vote for him out of sympathy!

    Maybe McCain's 'October Surprise' will be that he picks a more qualified VP.

    If I am not mistaken, didn't McCain and some others want to regulate Fannie Mae and Bernie Mac some time ago but the Dems voted it down?
