John McCain is apparently still in NYC, despite his loud pronouncement of needing to get back to Washington to save the economic day. Yesterday, he canceled a "Late Show" taping for this same reason, but instead of jetting back to DC, he had tea and crumpets with an heiress fundraiser who supported Hillary Clinton.
“John McCain. . . was supposed to be on the program tonight. . . but he had to cancel the show because he’s suspending his campaign because the economy is exploding,” David Letterman said, cracking up the crowd. “John McCain calls up and says ‘I’m not going to be there kids because everything is going to hell.”’
Things got even more brutal when McCain’s hastily scheduled replacement, Keith Olbermann (ouch!) took the couch.
