Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer tells his audience that they woke up Sen. John McCain at 6am so they could get him on the air to discuss the latest developments in Ukraine.

Apparently CBS News considered it an emergency to get Sen. John McCain out of bed so he could come on the air and say the same things he's been saying for the last month about the recent developments in Ukraine.

I always assumed most of them probably had him on speed dial as one of their last minute go-to guests as often as he's on these Sunday shows, but it's the first time one of them more or less admitted it on the air.

Can you help us out?
