(Newser) – David Letterman's favorite whipping boy may return to the show next week in a move to make the peace, reports the New York Post. John McCain is in talks for his Late Show redemption on Oct. 15, ending a feud that's dogged the candidate since he ditched Dave for Katie Couric two weeks ago.

"I feel like we've caught him getting a manicure," says Letterman, who has been ripping the senator and Sarah Palin every night since.
