Letterman blasting McCain for cancelling an appearance in his show. He said he had to flight back to DC immediately and a couple hours later he was still in NY giving an interview.
Not only that, he was still in NY even the next morning to attend the Clinton Global Initiative.
I don't know why political campaigns compulsively lie instead of saying the truth even when the truth is the better story. What his team should have said is, "we are canceling our appearance on The Late Show because the economic crisis that is facing our country is serious business. Humor is an important part of the fabric of our society, but there is a time and a place for it and right now it's more important for Senator McCain to fulfill his promise to the American people to put country first. We look forward to going back on Mr. Letterman's show when the crisis is resolved."
