McCain Talks Blagojevich and Air Pirate Name but Not Palin to Letterman

I saw Sen. John McCain, former presidential candidate, on Late Night with David Letterman last night. He had a cute story about Christmas gifts being incinerated when he was young, and how he got the name of "Air Pirate" after a crash from his military days.

Addressing current events he called Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich both stupid and nuts and said the governor came to him shortly after being electing saying that he wanted to be reformer just like John McCain. Here's YouTube video from last night's show.

As I've said before, I like McCain more since he's off the campaign trail. I got a kick out his appearance on Jay Leno's show last month.

Not in the Letterman clip is his chuckling at the idea of discussing his former running mate, Sarah Palin, again. No need to rehash his choice, he told Dave.
