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.

If you are worried about paying the dentist or doctor, for god's sakes DO NOT vote for McCain.

Rich Republicans don't care for average people, they just want to maintain their extravagant life styles and stay in bed with big business.

Letterman is a joke at this point. Leno is retiring as a king and letterman has looked like a beaten dog for the past 10 years. Johnny Carson was right to give the job to Leno, he carried on the tradition and has the ratings to prove it. I am sure that he didn't want to be there with failed comedian/sportscaster Olbermann anyway. It seems like once you can't get work anymore, you can revive your career by bashing republicans, cough..Maher, Colbert, Stewart, Olbermann...cough.

Me, myself and I    


There is no way that I'd ever vote for Obama, after his "plan" to put extra taxes on the very wealthy to support health care for each and every child in America. He says that there will be "savings" after the health care system is streamlined, but there is nothing about any ideas ON the streamlining. America was built on the idea of free enterprise, and Obama seems to want to penalize people for being successful. Where is the incentive to come up with innovative ideas?

Yes, I'm old enough to know that the president doesn't make new laws or regulations, - the house of rep. and the senate does that, but I don't like his line of thinking. I'll vote for John McCain because I know he believes in the free enterprise system.

As for David Letterman, maybe the invite from NBC came after he blew your show off, and he made his comments, and THEN caught that plane.

I used to like Letterman -- but this year he seems very bitter. I don't think McCain had to worry about losing Dave's vote anyway. Going on Letterman these days as a Republican is about like going on The View. Then to bring on Oberman... that guy is no talent ass clown who should have stuck to reading the teleprompter at ESPN -- the only thing he's ever been good at. Whatever... whoever wins the election -- none of our lives are going to change anyway.

To Post #86 - Joe in response to rich Republicans! --- Do you realize that these celebs who are backing Obama have more money than you will ever make in your entire life time. And the majority of these Democrats you back have never been without a dime their entire life? Are you really that dumb?

I am not worried about dental or medical bills but some people do. I for one am not rich but I am definitely a Republican and have been probably longer than you have been able to vote!

The wealthy SHOULD pay more taxes but Bush gave them all big tax cuts instead.
This, along with his stupid lying war, helps ruin the economy.

I hate snobs!    

All you Inadequates and Illiterates better hope McCain wins this election. Anyone voting for Obama is a brainwashed follower of his cult. He's MUSLIM people...he inadvertantly said it instead of "christian" when asked his faith in an interview recently. He has NO EXPERIENCE! His short and useless time as a senator has prepared him for nothing but speeches...which is all he's given. Ya'll are in for a huge surprise if his brainwashing speeches cause him to win this thing. Our country is already going down the tubes and his win will be the clincher. Does his middle name "Hussein" give you a muslim clue? How about the fact his real father is muslim and his step dad raised him muslim? His family is from one of the hugest muslim countries on earth. It's terrifying to think how stupid the majority of the people in this country are. McCain isn't that great but he's the best of 2 evils...by FAR. Good luck people. It's hard enough to live in the U.S. with what is going on and it's terrifying to think how it will get with this nincompoop. Terrifying.

You are all missing the issue. McCain lied to his face. He called Dave up and said he had to go to Washington that night to take care of the financial mess. But he actually stayed in New York to do a Couric interview (which he could have done on Letterman) and then stays overnight for the Clinton Global Initiative in the morning. So all you losers who get all your information from Fixed News, Snob Hannity and DouchReport, learn the facts first.
