Say it ain't so!
Somebody should get fired. Imagine McCain submitting to an interview at a NOW convention with Obama in a "cone of silence." Couldn't happen, so why speculate, but if it had the McCain folks would have insisted on inspection of the "cone" in advance. Ask how it came to pass that the Obama campaign agreed to have Reverend Warren, pastor of one of the way-out evangelical churches, guarantee that McCain would not hear the Obama answers? Here is the NYT version of what happened.
"Mr. Warren, pastor of Saddleback, had assured the audience while he was interviewing Mr. Obama that 'we have placed Senator McCain in a cone of silence' and that he could not hear the questions." Sure. If you believe that McCain didn't hear Obama's interview or get the questions in advance, then you may think that Obama Nation belongs in the nonfiction part of the bookstore.
"We have placed him in a cone of silence. (Trust me!) "Interviewed on CNN Sunday, Warren seemed surprised to learn that McCain was not in the building during the Obama interview (thus the good rev. could not have "placed" him in the Cone).
A spokesman for McCain said he was enroute to the church. Memo to Obama: What good could possibly have come from the appearance in front of a hostile group? And, how could you leave it to McCain or his supporter Rev. Warren to follow or enforce the rules? Ever hear of Swift boating? Do you think Karl Rove would make a mistake like that?
Say it ain't so Senator Cowles. JS columnist Dan Bice reports that social conservative Republican State Senator Robert Cowles is an investor in Rick's Cabaret International and VCG holdings. You have to read to believe, but one site might give you a hint--"Coupletouch, a site for swingers to meet one another." And so it goes... Cowles response? "God, I didn't know that. Oh, my God." Yup. OMG!
