Don't leave Dave Letterman holding the bag and expect him to cover for you...
John McCain gambles and loses AGAIN. He cancels on Letterman, telling him "he's needed immediately in Washington and the campaign is suspended"...then he goes down the street and tapes an interview with Katie Couric.
Letterman leads the show with five solid minutes of just wailing on McCain, and then brings in Keith Olbermann to fill the time!
Which video is going to be passed around the internet and watched by more people? Letterman's drubbing or Couric's foot massage?
I don't think that's even close...
UPDATE: This morning on ABC News radio: A wrap-up story on Letterman hammering McCain, including a clip; zero coverage of Couric interview.
