Except for David Letterman who was obviously ticked when McCain bailed out on appearing on his show at the last moment.
McCain lied to Letterman and told him he had to immediately fly back to Washington to deal with the Wall Street crisis, but instead he went next door to the CBS studio to do an interview with Katie Couric. And Letterman caught him! It was a classic moment with Letterman watching a live feed of McCain getting ready for his Couric interview and yelling “Hey, Senator, I have a question! Do you need a ride to the airport?”
But the best line of the night was when Letterman said “What are you going to do if you’re elected and things get tough? Suspend being president?”
Meanwhile, there is a sinking suspicion that the real reason for McCain’s desperation move to put off the debates is to Hide Sarah Palin!
Probably not a bad idea.
