McCain Didn't Just Suspend His Campaign...

He also suspended his appearance last night on "The Late Show with David Letterman."

McCain was supposed to be the guest on Letterman last night, but called Dave right before the show to tell him he was rushing off to Washington to (direct quote) "save the country" and couldn't be on.

Which is fine, Dave said we should admire him for his persistance... until Dave caught McCain cheating on him.

The Late Show is hosted by CBS, the same network as CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, where McCain sat down for a long interview during the same time slot as when he should have been taping The Late Show. What he meant to say was that he was rushing back uptown.

As it turns out, canceling on Dave was a horrible idea because Dave was PISSED. And Dave is a quick-witted comedian. You get the idea of what happened. And EVERYONE is talking about it.

Watch the Letterman clip here. It's nine minutes long but the whole thing is hilarious.

Wow, I guess the lesson here is not to lie to Letterman.

This whole "suspending my campaign" thing is such a cheap ploy. Ugh, it's really causing me to lose even more respect for McCain.
