Letterman on McCain Last Night




John McCain cancelled his scheduled appearance on David Letterman last night to rush back to Washington to save America from financial destruction. Dave wasn't having any of it. Hilariously, while they were taping Letterman, they found out McCain was actually down the street taping an interview with Katie Couric for CBS News instead. "Hey, John, need a ride to the airport!?" It's 9 minutes long, but worth every second.

McCain wasn't actually taping the interview at that time, the interview was 6 hours old, and Letterman was doing a 'bit'. I thought it was so rude of McCain and hilarious when I heard it at first as well!

Actually, that's not true Maggie. Letterman tapes each night's show in the late afternoon (I think it's around 5 p.m.), about the same time Couric is taping for the news. Letterman cut to an internal live feed from CBS showing McCain being made up and then the interview taking place. So, yeah, McCain lied.

Glad to see this at your Blog, Coll.
One quick note: When Dave spoke of the "suspending of his campaign", he also said "Well, if he's President and something comes up, is he gonna suspend being PRESIDENT?" Huge laughter on that.(Didn't see that little bit in this clip, so wanted to let ya know)
This clip you have here, though, is priceless!

Mags, a good reason to not believe everything you hear. :)

I just watched Countdown on MSNBC and Keith Olbermann said that while they were in a break, Letterman's producer said they had the internal live feed up from CBS's West 57 street studios and McCain was there. So, yes, McCain was with Katie Couric and they were watching it live as it was taped.
