In recent weeks, David Letterman has not become one of the biggest proponents of Barack Obama. However, he has become very anti-McCain. The reason for this is that John McCain was slated to be on the show in late September. He canceled one hour before the show because he was ‘going back to Washington to deal with the financial crisis’.
It turns out that Senator McCain actually stayed in New York that evening. He actually interviewed with CBS’s Katie Couric that same evening he was supposed to appear on Letterman. Since then, Letterman has gone on the attack of the Arizona senator and his vice president, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. He has been making jokes ranging from McCain’s age to Palin’s simpleton persona.
My question is…Can David Letterman turn the tide of an election? With this aggressive offensive attack on John McCain, the polls have actually gone in favor of Obama. Could David Letterman stir the drink that puts Barack Obama in the White House? If McCain cancels on Letteman, could he possibly cancel that abruptly on a person like oh lets say…Vladimir Putin? Granted, McCain has rescheduled himself to appear on the Late Show so he can save face. But putting aside Johnny Boy trying to save his image, can we trust him not to cancel that abruptly on someone of the likes of oh lets say….Vladimir Putin? Letterman is doing a good job of sticking it to John McCain after his cancelation. It is very possible that David Letterman could turn states like Virginia and North Carolina, strong Republican stalwart states, to the blue column come November. Only time will tell. We are 25 days away from the election. Heres hoping he continues to echo the voice of change.
