I finished watching “The Colbert Report” the other night, Wednesday to be exact. I wasn’t tired, so I started doing the channel surfing thing starting at channel 2. Here in Pennsylvania channel 2 is the CBS affiliate. Nothing there, so I head up to NBC, and David Letterman. And what did I find? That John McCain was supposed to be on, but called to say that he was canceling his appearance along with his campaign to head back to Washington to help with the crap that is happening in the economy.
I can understand canceling an appearance on a television show, but canceling your campaign? I agree with Letterman here, if you as a candidate have to head back to Washington to take care of the country’s business, then you have your running mate pick up the baton and move forward. Where is Palin in all of this? Being protected from the media and the public? Why? Is there something about her inability to talk intelligently about anything having to do with policy that has the McCain/Palin group uncomfortable? Do we want this person as our VP?
I am not thinking so.
Though is is pretty funny to watch Letterman taking McCain to task.
