Video: David Letterman Rips John McCain For Suspending Appearance
by Jack Ryan

David Letterman ripped John McCain a new one on last night's show, after McCain supposedly called Dave at the last minute to cancel his appearance because he had to "race to the airport" to go watch after the financial crisis.

Letterman would go on to learn midway through the broadcast that the Arizona senator was actually still in New York.  In fact, McCain was nearby, at the CBS News headquarters. He was preparing for a last-minute exclusive interview with Katie Couric only a couple blocks away from Dave's studio and far from an airport.

Then an incredulous Letterman interrupted his interview with Keith Olbermann (who had filled in as a substitute guest for McCain) to show the audience a live shot on the internal CBS News feed of a makeup artist putting the finishing touches on McCain while he waited to talk to Couric.

"He doesn't seem to be racing to the airport, does he?" Letterman said, shouting at the television monitor: "Hey, John, I got a question! You need a ride to the airport?"

After Dave busted McCain with his pants down, he used the opportunity to rail his elder some more. He said, today's events were an indication "that something is going haywire with the campaign."
