David Bitterman? Spurned Host Rips McCain

9/25/2008 3:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Letterman absolutely tore John McCain a new one on Wednesday'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 our crappy economy.

But here's the kicker: Later on, Dave cut to live footage of Johnny boy getting his makeup done for an interview with Katie Couric -- only a couple blocks away from Dave's studio and far from an airport.

After Dave busted McCain with his pants down, he used the opportunity to rail his elder some more.

David Letterman needs to retire, he is not funny anymore, and this just shows what a jackass he has become.

David Letterman is a moron and so not funny. No wonder his show has been second to Leno all of these years. Maybe when Leno retires you might get more of a viewing audience but I doubt it. Not to mentioned that someone is looking after our economy.

Regardless of politics Letterman is a bitter old has been. I lump him right in there with Leno. Both are hacks now, may have been funny at one time...we'll Dave has never been funny. Glad he blew up though...just one more stressing event ultimately leading up to his heart exploding.

David Letterman's an idiot. Has it ever occurred to that jackoff that a presidential candidate telling jokes on some very unfunny comedian's show doesn't look good in light of the crisis we are going through.

I can't stand Letterman because he spews his useless political drivel all the time on his show. Good for McCain!!!! I hope he did it on purpose, and I am glad Letterman is upset about it!!!!

Letterman is a whiny b*tch, McCain has a job to do and he's doing it. DL has a clear agenda and this is simply an opportunity to pontificate.
