Letterman Continues Attack on McCain

David Letterman is still pissed off at John McCain for standing him up, and Paris Hilton, who Letterman claimed was McCain’s first choice of running mates, even joined him in bashing McCain:

He said he felt like a “patriot” to let McCain off his commitment to deal with the economy and “now I’m feeling like an ugly date.”

“That’s what I feel like, I feel like an ugly date,” he said. “I feel used. I feel cheap. I feel sullied.”

He began the bashing in his monologue, telling the audience, “You’re here on a good night. So far none of our guests have canceled.”

He compared his situation to that of David Blaine hanging upside down in Central Park for sixty hours saying, “They just left the guy hanging there. It’s the same thing McCain did to me last night.”

“Here’s how it works: you don’t come to see me? You don’t come to see me? Well, we might not see you on Inauguration Day,” Letterman said.

Letterman also stated that McCain wanted to delay his debate with Obama and Sarah Palin wanted to postpone her debate with Joe Biden until after Election Day. Letterman said McCain taking Palin to meet world leaders at the United Nations was like “take-your-daughter-to-work day.”

The Top 10 List was read by people from  Wasilla, Alaska:

    For several months, David Letterman has joined the other offensive Hollywood crowd, in telling insulting jokes, at Senator John McCain’s expense. Now, when one of the most important, challenging, and controversial decisions in our nation’s history must be decided, Letterman is still crying because McCain chose to do his job, fighting for the best deal he could get for Americans and America. I’d rather have McCain in Wasington watching out for America’s interests, than to have him on Letterman’s show, or to have our Nation’s future decided by Pelosi and Reid, who have a 15% approval rating for a good reason. If David Letterman cared about Americans, who made him rich, instead of being so self absorbed and petty, he would be supporting McCain and our country right now.

    This is not about McCain doing his job–it is about McCain lying once again. Letterman has been quite fair to McCain all along, with McCain even announcing his candidacy on the show.

    Letterman had no problem with McCain canceling in order to return to Washington as he claimed he was doing. Instead he took another day to return. When Letterman was filming he was doing damage control because of Palin’s disastrous interview with Katie Couric.

    McCain is not in Washington looking out for America’s interests. He hadn’t even read the plan he claimed he was returning to Washington to work on, by his own admission in a recent interview. He is purely playing politics and has done nothing to help the situation.

    Pelosi and Reid do not have a 15% approval rating–all of Congress does. This is not a reflection of Pelosi and Reed but Congress’s overall record since there are enough Republicans to prevent anything from being done. The high disapproval comes from voters who also prefer to see more Democrats in Congress to solve the problem.

    Letterman is right in criticizing McCain for playing politics with an issue such as the financial crisis. Nobody who really cares about America and understands what is going on in Washington would vote for someone like John McCain whose policies would be harmful to the country.

    Letterman tapes his show in New York City. Last time I checked Hollywood was still in California.
