No Cone of Silence for McCain

John McCainThe New York Times reported that Senator John McCain was in his limo on the way to Saddleback as Senator Barack Obama was being interviewed.  A McCain spokesman said McCain did not hearthe answers and did not cheat.

So Pastor Warren, in saying Senator McCain was in a cone of silence, was unaware that he wasn’t.  And McCain in making a joke about trying to “hear through the wall” after Warren asked him about the confort of the Cone of Silence, lied.  He lied.  He lied in a church.  He lied in a church to a pastor.  And he did it on National Television. 

How many Hail Marys does McCain need to say now to atone for this sin?

    Right. The McCain campaign claims McCain didn’t hear the answers. But that doesn’t mean nobody in his entourage was listening to it on the radio.

    Something doesn’t smell right about this.

    No cone of silence …

    McCain has prior knowkedge of questions?

    Say’s not.

    Proof otherwise …

    RW – Q = 9 DEFINE MARRIAGE.

    JM – R = 10 “A UNION — A UNION BETWEEN MAN AND WOMAN, BETWEEN

    11 ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN, THAT’S MY DEFINITION OF MARRIAGE.

    12 ARE WE GOING TO GET BACK TO THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPREME

    13 COURT JUSTICES.”

    14 Q WE’LL GET TO THAT.

    NOTICE: McCain >>> “ARE WE GOING TO GET BACK TO THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPREME COURT JUSTICES”

    BEFORE >>> he was asked about Judges …

    Busted.

    Somebody should really compare the questions asked and how Warren changed them for McCain, he was much gentler. Side by side I think would show they were not the same questions in just the way the were asked.

    Interesting stuff, but I don’t want us to be the whiners…

    I know, I know, if the shoe was on the other foot…

    Too late Vern. You’re the whiners already, and it was all too predictable…

    d’Anconia,

    Well at least Vern was capable of some self-reflection and objectivity…something most Reeps are genetically incapable of.

    Hey I’m the one constantly calling out our own f-ups, and I give Vern credit for recognizing when an issue is about to hurt his party. I wasn’t insulting Vern by the way, just making the observation that regardless of his recommendation, members of his party have already begun to whine and complain, and that it was all too predictable…

    To be a devil’s advocate (against MYSELF no less) whining, or “working the refs” does seem to work often for getting better media coverage – it’s worked for years for the Republicans who have convinced the weak-kneed media that they’re too “liberal”, and it worked to a degree for Hillary during the primary. And maybe it can work for Dems. Just sort of goes against my grain personally. I’d rather move on. Barack will make mincemeat of McCain in any fair debate.
