McCain Does Letterman

Now we know why John McCain wormed out of his first David Letterman appearance to instead attend a televised chat with Katie Couric.

Because David Letterman, y’know, actually asks questions people on TV without backing bands are supposed to ask.

For instance, after grilling the senator on his incessant whining about Barack Obama‘s gossamer “connection” to Bill Ayers, Letterman then asks, “Did you not have a relationship with Gordon Liddy?” (Liddy, of course, was the scuzzy bastard who broke into the DNC headquarters in 1972, thus beginning the Watergate scandal and ultimately leading to Liddy’s conviction and imprisonment.) And guess what? McCain is buddies with Liddy and his son! Hahaha!

He doesn’t even try to pretend he’s not a hypocrite.
