John McCain on Mitt Romney: "If he doesn't [win the election], it may have been an act of God ... it may have been the storm"

On the eve of the general election, this evening Piers Morgan invites John McCain to share his trademark brand of political candor and unfiltered insight.

Listening to a CNN video clip from earlier in the day, during which Robert Gibbs criticized the Arizona Senator for suggesting military personnel don't trust Barrack Obama, McCain said simply "the truth hurts, the truth hurts."

Appearing on "Erin Burnett OutFront," the former White House Press Secretary described McCain's words as "one of the more shameful comments I've heard in more than 20 years of being in politics."

This evening, McCain does not backpedal: FULL POST

Piers Morgan on Superstorm Sandy: "Our office lights began to flicker, and our building...was shaking and rattling like a cupboard full of steel skeletons"

Fresh off the digital press Piers Morgan has filed a new diary entry for the "Daily Mail" and in this post he shares his unique first-hand perspective on Superstorm Sandy, the recent weather event that wrought havoc of much of the United States' Eastern seaboard.

Having experienced his fair share of extreme meteorological conditions since moving to America, Morgan fancied himself as a man who'd seen it all, everything from extreme cold as part of a Chicago winter, to the melting heat associated with a Las Vegas summer. But nothing, not the Midwest, not the desert, and
not even earthquakes in Los Angeles or a tornado in Texas could prepare the Brit for what he experienced in New York one week ago:

"The rain started around midday, and the clouds darkened rapidly. I took a cab to CNN’s bureau at the Time Warner Centre, on the south-west corner of Central Park in Midtown Manhattan, around 2 p.m. and made my way to my seventh-floor office. An hour after I arrived, an enormous noise that sounded like a thunderclap boomed out. I ran to the window, and saw that an 80-ton crane on top of a skyscraper 500 yards away (a building called One57, which will be New York’s tallest residential tower at 90 storeys) had buckled, and the top of it was now dangling precariously over the densely populated streets below."

Having hunkered down inside the network's New York bureau, Morgan's feeling of safety became fleeting:

"As the afternoon wore on, our office lights began to flicker, and our building – one of the biggest, newest and supposedly strongest multi-skyscraper edifices in America – was shaking and rattling like a cupboard full of steel skeletons. Rain and wind lashed the windows with ominous velocity, and by 9 p.m., when I went live on air, the full force of the hurricane had descended on the city."

While Morgan hosted a live, one-hour program dedicated entirely to the storm, Sandy's wrath grew by the minute: FULL POST

Clips From Last Night: Cory Booker on Rudy Giuliani's criticism of Barack Obama; Michael Moore on Tuesday's upcoming election

On Sunday evening, as part of a special weekend edition of "Piers Morgan Tonight," Mayor Cory Booker joined the program live from Newark, New Jersey as residents and workers continued their clean up and recovery efforts following Superstorm Sandy.

Two days after former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani served up skewering remarks towards Barack Obama, during which the Mitt Romney surrogate criticized the president for returning to the campaign trail on the heels of a tragedy that devastated much of the Eastern seaboard, Booker described the one-time Republican presidential candidate's words as "blatantly partisan."

Continuing, the current mayor said of the former mayor, "the reality is, Giuliani is no longer in office. I have been on calls with, you know, regional calls, where we have 20, 30 people there, officials from New York, officials from New Jersey, directly in conversation with the president, intense calls where we're discussing issues, strategies."

Roughly 48 hours prior to Tuesday's general election, Michael Moore also joined Piers Morgan live, commenting on the near even split between voters as Obama and Mitt Romney battle down to the wire: FULL POST
