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.

Dave needs to GET OVER HIMSELF. Stop thinking you are so self important, when there are real issues that are worth addressing. Unlike watching your show. A presidential candidate has more important things to worry about than appearing on his weak show which is so biased already anyway, why should he even bother? He shouldn't. Nicely done McCain!

McCain and Palin lie every single day. Every day they get caught in a new lie. This is truly amazing. Two pathetic losers who can't be trusted.

everyone is jealous    

Here's the thing, the liberal are realist, the conservatives believe they are the moral majority. The think the liberals are runned by the media, while they are runned by God. That they are the pure party. But here's the deal, the Johovah witness's or maybe its teh 7th day adventist, who believes they are the purest of all, and believe that their God will always take care of them, don't even vote. Most people think that that is crazy, along with their religion.
So I would rather be a realist, instead of a naive loyalist. I am a thinker and not a follower.
Dave Letterman, has always been his own person, never a follower, and that is why he is Dave, because he could care less what the rest of us think. Read the latest issue of Rolling Stone, and you will just realize how smart he is. He is having the last laugh!!

Oh boo-hoo Dave, it's not like this is the first time a guest cancelled on you. Give me a break. All you wanted him on the show for was to do "The View" part 2 on him anyway. I don't know what you are all upset about, I am SURE your good buddy Barack could have filled in, and he would have been easy to contact, just pull your nose OUT OF HIS ASS DAVE and ask him.

By the way: How is Obama fixing the economy? Is he thinking of utilizing all the money he gets from the terrorist countries? He is a Muslim and racist! He is a hypocrite pretending to like the White people when there are facts showing the hatred towards white with his old minister. PLEASE people WAKE UP and smell the truth

Typical Republican game plan. Sarah Palin has disastrous interview with Katie Couric. McCain Campaign panics. Calls press conference to announce "suspension of campaign" to deflect media from ugly CBS interview. McCain runs back to Couric to sit for an interview TO REPLACE the failed interview Palin gave.
