We are told by El Rushbo that words mean things. In this case, "Cone of Silence" means you are isolated - that there is no way for you to cheat. We were led to believe by Rick Warren and John McCain that we didn't have to trust the Rove'd up McCain campaign not to cheat. They lied to us, in church.
While they were in that motorcade, for the first half an hour of the interview, McCain could have listened to as much as he wanted.
“The insinuation from the Obama campaign that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, cheated is outrageous,” Ms. Wallace said.
Before an audience of more than 2,000 people at the church, the candidates answered questions about policy and social issues.
Mr. Warren, the pastor of Saddleback, had assured the audience while he was interviewing Mr. Obama that “we have safely placed Senator McCain in a cone of silence” and that he could not hear the questions.
After Mr. Obama’s interview, he was joined briefly by Mr. McCain, and the candidates shook hands and embraced.
Mr. Warren started by asking Mr. McCain, “Now, my first question: Was the cone of silence comfortable that you were in just now?”
Mr. McCain deadpanned, “I was trying to hear through the wall.”
Interviewed Sunday on CNN, Mr. Warren seemed surprised to learn that Mr. McCain was not in the building during the Obama interview.
"The insinuation from the Obama campaign that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, cheated is outrageous." Ha! Tell that to McCain's first wife.
