The McCain appearance on Letterman was actually pretty funny last night.
When Letterman asked McCain why he cancelled on him back in September, McCain said, "I screwed up." Twice. Big laughs. McCain was funny and relaxed.
Then they got into a slightly more heated political discussion and things were tense at times. A lot of the same ole same ole: not enough town hall debates, spread the wealth, Joe the Plumber, and Sarah Palin -- about whom McCain said, "I didn't know her well at all."
Letterman pressed him pretty hard his Obama/Ayers attacks, and McCain got a little heated in his criticism. But he seemed momentarily stunned when Letterman asked him about his own relationship with Watergate burglar G. Gordon Liddy.
If you missed the show, it's on the Late Show with David Letterman website.
But this wasn't the only place serving up political laughs last night. McCain and Barack Obama roasted each other at the Al Smith Dinner in New York, and they were pretty funny. Obama said that his first name is actually Swahili for "that one," and McCain revealed that Obama's pet name for him is "George Bush." There's video here.
Joe Biden appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, but according to the LA Times blogger, it wasn't all that funny -- except for Biden's "gaffe" intro.
And -- this could be great -- Sarah Palin is scheduled to appear on Saturday Night Live tomorrow night. Now that is a DVR Alert!
