(Newser) – The David Letterman-John McCain feud continued last night on the Late Show as the host kept hammering the candidate for standing him up, reports the Los Angeles Times. Letterman, whose guests included Paris Hilton—"McCain's first choice as running mate"—said he felt like an "ugly date" after McCain cancelled on him Wednesday, pleading that he had to rush to Washington—then did an interview with Katie Couric and spent the night in New York.

"I feel used. I feel cheap. I feel sullied," Letterman said. "John, John, here’s how it works. You don’t come to see me? Well, we might not see you on Inauguration Day." Letterman also unleashed "Top Ten Surprising Facts About Sarah Palin," which included a trip she made to the International House of Pancakes to "improve her foreign policy experience."
