Yes, you knew it would happen. Someone would come out looking better than the other in Saturday evening’s forum with Rick Warren. And it was also inevitable that the one looking the least “shiny” would whine incessantly the next news cycle.
The Obama camp and its media water-carriers are seriously accusing John McCain of “cheating” in his appearance over the weekend at Rick Warren’s Saddleback church forum because he was in his motorcade when the program started– and then escorted to an empty room without media hook-ups. NBC’s Andrea Mitchell spread the unsubstantiated rumor that somehow McCain heard Obama’s questions while on his drive. The NY Times piled on (“Despite Assurances, McCain Wasn’t In a ‘Cone of Silence’“). The McCain camp has protested.
HOWEVER, according to The New York Times, Warren gave both candidates a sneak-peek at some of the questions. I guess, maybe, the Obama camp failed to mention this as they complained.
