McCain Will Regret Skipping Letterman

McCain suspended his campaign today to that he could focus on the economy.  He canceled his appearance on the Letterman show . . . but still had time to talk to Katie Couric.  Letterman let him have it. Check it out at http://lateshow.cbs.com/latenight/lateshow/

I assume that link will come down sooner than later, so here are a few quotes:

Then in the middle of the taping Dave got word that McCain was, in fact just down the street being interviewed by Katie Couric. Dave even cut over to the live video of the interview, and said, “Hey Senator, can I give you a ride home?”

Earlier in the show, Dave kept saying, “You don’t suspend your campaign. This doesn’t smell right. This isn’t the way a tested hero behaves.” And he joked: “I think someone’s putting something in his metamucil.”

“He can’t run the campaign because the economy is cratering? Fine, put in your second string quarterback, Sara Palin. Where is she?”

“What are you going to do if you’re elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We’ve got a guy like that now!”

McCain is cooked if the election just keeps going.  Business as usual leads to President Obama.  McCain has to gamble; he has to do something disruptive.   So, we get to the point here: Did McCain suspend his campaign so that he concentrate on the economy?  Or, to quote Letterman, “are we suspending the campaign because the poll numbers are sliding?”

Voters will decide.

The ironic thing is, McCain announced his presidential candidacy on the Letterman show.
