Quote of the Week (and It's Only Wednesday)

"You don't suspend your campaign. This doesn't smell right. This isn't the way a tested hero behaves. I think someone's putting something in his Metamucil. He can't run the campaign because the economy is cratering? Fine, put in your second string quarterback, Sara Palin. Where is she? What are you going to do if you're elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We've got a guy like that now!"

-- David Letterman, talking about John McCain

As I understand it, McCain was scheduled to be on Letterman tonight (i.e., it was taped this afternoon), and canceled his appearance citing the urgent need to return to Washington right away.

Except he instead stayed in New York, and genius that he is, gave another interview instead to Katy Couric, three blocks away. How could he not expect Letterman to discover and exploit such an absolute bald faced lie?

Hi Chez,

First-time poster here, but long-time lurker. Thanks for your great writing.

Was watching Keith Olbermann earlier, and he brought this issue up, how McCain had personally called Letterman to cancel his appearance for tonight, stating that he was flying back to Washington right away. Except...he was actually in another CBS studio being interviewed by Katie Couric. Letterman then showed the streaming video of that interview. And how did Keith Olbermann know all this? Because he was called in to replace McCain! Priceless.

If anyone hasn't had the pleasure of watching Letterman rip into McCain and's where I found it:

By the way, Votar...I think you were right about Chez's post the other day ripping a hole in space-time by referencing blogs that reference blogs that reference blogs.

It's the only thing that explains how crazy this election cycle has been.

We're clearly in an alternate reality.
