Oh, whatever. He told Dave that he was suspending his campaign. Appearing on Letterman or Couric is not evidence of having suspended a campaign.
Both shows are taped in the daytime and aired at night or early evening. Where was McCain during that Wednesday (09/24/08) afternoon, after he made
the statement, "this campaign is suspending its advertising and fundraising"? McCain
a fundraising dinner at New York City's famous 21 Club.
So - he lied. Plain and simple. And it's Letterman's show. He has a right to be pissed at getting ditched. The show doesn't run on air. Money
was spent at McCain's favor, only for McCain to show disfavor to Letterman with a lie.
And McCain lied to the Obama campaign. Attending a fundraising dinner is not exactly the suspension of fundraising, is it? Not to mention
advertising on Couric's show.
It's all a dog and pony show to McCain, that's clear now. Using the financial crisis to his benefit for photo ops and "credit".
Oh and McCain campaigned today giving a speech
the Clinton Global initiative in NYC. "Suspension of advertising and fundraising" -- what a joke!
