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.

It does notmatter how many Republican shills are posting tonight. The bubble collapsed on Bush's watch.

Instead of "trickle down" economics I'm voting for "bottom up" economics.
And that means DEMOCRAT.

The Enquirer was right about Edwards too so I believe the story about Palin's adultery.
Sorry but I won't vote for an old geezer and a whore.

________ I am happy he snubbed LOOSERMAN! Whatever reason he had - LOOSERMAN was not important. Let LOOSERMAN earn his keep and make up the time that Senator McCain did not appear. Let's see how witty he can actually be at his job. Umm, I am bitter at his job.

Who watches LOOSERMAN anyway???

PS: Your name suits you - piece of $hit .....GARBAGE - I bet there are flies hovering over you!!!!!

hey, "Freedom" - So what if Obama IS Muslim? Obama has already said he is Christian, but even if he were Muslim, who cares? Why should you not vote for a good American just because of their religion? Oh, unless you are one of those ignorant morons who think all Muslims are terrorists?! Bigot.

LETTERMAN IS KING! Leno may have more ratings but that's because stupid ass Americans don't understand Letterman's intelligent humour. His ad libing is brilliant, Leno is sooooo boring. OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT.
