"Hey John, I gotta question: You need a ride to the airport?"

Seriously, did anyone actually ask for McCain's urgent full-time help with this? Could they just not pass the bill if he took off two hours to do a debate? Because I'm pretty sure they can call him when they need a vote.

Not to mention that McCain is on exactly none of the committees that would really be looking into the nuts and bolts of the bill anyway.

First of all, it shouldn't pass. Second, this is a cheap political stunt. Third, the old man might likely just be scared of debating Obama.

What a brave and courageous war hero who won't face an apparently ignorant and inexperienced junior senator in a debate. Wow.

Maybe he's worried that the Islamofascist candidate will trigger his explosive suicide vest.

To me, they seem more concerned with the VP debate. I think they are hoping to reschedule the Presidential debates so late that there "won't be time" for the VP debate.

heyitslozeau - 2008-09-25
not to mention that McCain running back to Washington now to "help fix the economy" is like me flying to Germany tomorrow to help with the Nazi threat.

This is a BIG DEAL. This is a THING. This is history.

This was pretty awesome.

I can dig it. This stunt needs mainstream derision.

This is going to be remembered.

Oh god, the expression on Olbermann's face actually approaches shock. You don't see that too often.
Diogenes - 2008-09-25
That look you see is Olbermann successfully fighting the urge to immediately dash out of the interview and call his news manager with the scoope.

John McCain's 9:11.


Keefu - 2008-09-24
Who the fuck ditches Letterman for Katie goddamn Couric?
Evilhead - 2008-09-25

Ha! For all the people to have on of all days, he brings in Olbermann! I bet he had some kind words for Hanoi John.

This vid leaves out my favorite line from Dave's rant, though: "What are you going to do if you're elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We've got a guy like that now!"
Caminante Nocturno - 2008-09-25
The respect one is obligated to give you for being a war veteran can only take you so far, especially if you seem dead set on destroying your credibility.
dueserpenti - 2008-09-25
Remind me never to cross David Letterman. He'll make me look like a liar and a fool. Or does that only work if you really are one?
Dib - 2008-09-25
The Republican candidate for president appears to be playing hookey.
dead_cat - 2008-09-25
Ohhh, this had better make all the rounds on the news stations...
mouser - 2008-09-25
Haven't watched Letterman in a while. Man. He still has it.
sonichronique - 2008-09-25
Fucking wow.

"Who would do that?"

An emotional moron. Seriously, it's amazing when someone sacrifices themselves for the lives of others. However, it's a fucking piece of misplaced sentimentality to give up your freedom like he did when no one is gaining anything from it. Were I a fellow POW I would smother him in his sleep for passing up his freedom, so he could chum up with the guys and show solidarity.

I have no respect for McCain because he couldn't keep his shit in the air and as a result ended a prisoner of his enemy. He may have my empathy, but not my respect. The fact that he wanted to stay for an exceptionally thick reason, only indicates further that he does not possess the baseline cognitive reasoning skills to steer our nation.

all true war heroes give up military secrets to enemy combatants

Mostly Pi - 2008-09-25
I'm going out on a ledge here and am gonna say the only "war secrets" McCain could share is how to repeatedly crash a plane.

I don't really think the impact of all this sunk into until tonight for me, but: Holy Shit.

My father is a big McCain supporter and has been since 2000, but this specific incident disgusted him. "I don't get it. Why would he do this? It shows a total lack of integrity. It makes him look like a liar. Also, who would ever go on Katie Couric?"

It's just a blatant lack of respect and common courtesy on John McCain's part, broadcasted live on national television. This is going to have a bigger impact than we know.

Fantastically delicious.
