McCain Returning to Letterman

David Letterman and Sen. John McCain will get a chance to make up.

The Republican presidential candidate is scheduled to appear on Letterman's "Late Show" on Thursday.

It will be McCain's 13th visit to the CBS program but his first since he angered Letterman by canceling last month.

Letterman was unhappy when McCain sat for an interview with Katie Couric instead of him on Sept. 24.

At the time he said he first felt like a "patriot" to let McCain off his commitment to deal with the economy but "now I'm feeling like an ugly date."

A McCain spokeswoman said at the time that because of the economic crisis, the campaign "felt this wasn't a night for comedy."

McCain fails to appear on any of the Sunday morning talk shows this a.m. but he's going to appear on Letterman?

shezzzzzzzzzzzzz...well, if Obama loses, it won't be anything that McCain and/or the McCain campaign has done. We can thank the Clintons & the Clintonistas for not voting for Obama...they wouldn't want to do anything that would prevent Hillary from running in 2012.

As Bill Kristol said this a.m. on Faux News, the McCain campaign has been a "stupid campaign."

Big mistake. Letterman will slam him and he won't even know it or will just play along. In any case he will come off as the butt of the joke.

"Can't we all just get along!" Rodney McCain.

How stupid! He’ll probably take the opportunity to apoligize to Obama —for his angry supporters.

and Bill Kristol just said on Faux News Sunday that McCain or Palin SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THEIR SHOW TODAY!!!

I don’t know who’s running the McCain campaign but whoever it is, THEY SHOULD BE FIRED TOMORROW!

McCain not only continues to advocate "reaching across the aisle" to work his those (DEMORATS in Congress) who hate him, hate America, are political animals who will do ANYTHING to regain the White House (as he willfully and blindly seeks their acceptance) he further denigrates himself by pandering to the likes of EXTREME far left has-beens like Letterman.

WTF is up with that?

I am now convinced that if McLame looses it will be mostly of his own doing.

I hope that the McCain campaign will forever put to rest the idea that if you play nice with your enemies, they will respect you and play nice in return.

They will play you for a fool EVERY TIME and stab you in the FRONT, in full public view!!!!!

Letterman is a snake. Why is McCain booked on his show? The McCain campaign is masochistic.

Why was Sarah booked on the Couric show? Couric is a poisonous asp. The McCain campaign is masochistic.

Just when things are worse they keep getting worser.

Great Sunday morning opportunity....gone with the wind. The McCain campaign is masochistic.

Fraternizing with the enemy on their biased shows is so stupid as to be unbelievable. To believe lambs can lie down with lions and emerge unscathed is masochistic.

“I am now convinced that if McLame looses it will be mostly of his own doing.”

I agree...he certainly is not a very good campaigner and whoever is running his campaign is an idiot!

Palin certainly outshines him on the campaign trail...which is certainly not difficult. LOL

Geezus! no one watches Letterman since he ceased to be funny back in 1991. Not ot mention he’s a full blown Obama supporter and flaming lib. Can McCain get any dumber?

Yes, both McCain and Pallin should have been on as many Sunday talk shows as possible. They are burning daylight. With three weeks until the election they are wasting time if they are taking the weekends off. Letterman will be his usual self, an a$$, and will make McCain look foolish.

Dim bulb undecideds don't watch the Sunday shows - they do watch Letterman. At least McCain is going where the eyeballs are, even if he fails to handle the environment well.

What a sad joke.

As the audience of easily led idiots look for clever quips, and one-liners to base who they decide would made a good leader.. wow...

Watching a potential Commander in Chief go on these types of shows is just downright embarrassing. These campaigns have turned into a backwater, low budget production for the easily amused.

At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised.

“Dim bulb undecideds?”

don’t bother to get up off the couch to vote!

Face facts, McCain missed an EXCELLENT opportunity TODAY to turn his campaign around and he BLEW IT!

Jesus. Say it isn’t so. What the hell is he thinking going on that hate-filled A$$clown’s show, why does he even care? And at the same time he’s passing up opportunities-the few left that he has-to dig himself out of the hole he’s in

Maybe McCain can gain a few pounds, put on some glasses, and be the new Larry Bud Melman. Letterman can hit him with pies every night or something. It’ll be a big hit, until King Obama cuts TV hours to save electricity in Pyongagng II -er, I mean DC.

Ummm... Sunday talk shows are a waste of time. They are for political junkies only. Undecided Soccer Mom types don’t watch it.

If I were McCain, I would tell Letterman to pound sand.

Who needs that gap-toothed idiot?
