Last night Senator John McCain was scheduled to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman. (Where I was once an employee.) At the last minute, McCain phoned up Dave and cancelled. He needed to rush back to Washington to fix the imploding economy. Uh, good luck with that.
The problem in the story? McCain actually went a few blocks north to be interviewed by lame duck anchorwoman Katie Couric.
Keith Olbermann was called out of the bullpen to fill in.
Letterman took the opportunity to fire a few shots over the bow.
Letterman in vintage form.
