Well, It Depends On Your Definition of Crisis ...

It's probably a good idea, that on the day you light your own hair on fire, and you happen to be booked on the David Letterman Show, you should follow through with the booking, and drag your charred, sorry-ass onto the stage.

Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain didn't do that.

Shortly after announcing he was putting the Dead Campaign Express up on blocks, he ducked out of the Letterman gig, and David Letterman spent virtually the entire program skewering Stumblin' Bumblin' Johnny for it.

Especially so, when it was discovered he wasn't rushing back to Washington, to lend his thimble-sized expertise to the current economy woes, as was the reason he gave for lighting his hair on fire (and, we should add, going against the advice of his financial mentor, Phil Gramm, whined about needing to bag out of the debate tomorrow evening, if Hank's Heist was a done deal by that time).

But, wait, it gets worse.

Where Stumblin' Bumblin' Johnny rushed to, was another CBS studio, the CBS Evening News, to do an interview with Katie Couric, while his Rove Rats rummage the closets to find and burn the interview Couric did a few hours earlier, with Mommy Moose.

As referenced, Letterman ragged on him for the entire night.

And, lucky for us, someone (perhaps from Letterman's staff, or CBS) condensed it down to a 9-minute video

Kick back and thoroughly enjoy yourselves.
