Letterman’s Mission

Remember when John McCain suspended his campaign to go to Congress and save the country from its financial woes? Well, in doing so, McCain canceled his scheduled appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, literally at the last minute, leaving Letterman without time to get a new guest. Letterman was not impressed, especially considering McCain did not immediately go to Washington but waited until the following afternoon. Ever since, the disgusted Letterman has been on a nightly mission to ridicule John McCain for his cynicism.

The above videos are highlights from the first days of Dave ranting about being jilted, including questioning McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate. Here are some other good ones:

    Finally I went through these. Hilarious! Thanks Eric for this selection. Is Letterman your favourite late show? What about Jay Leno or Conan O’Brien?

    I have always preferred Letterman to Leno (Conan isn’t quite in the same league). The problem that Letterman sometimes has, at least as he would argue, is that Leno can get better guests because he is located in L.A.
