I honestly don't know the answer to this question, or if it can be answered by anyone but John McCain. McCain's answers dis seem to come unusually fast, and included answers to questions not yet asked. It may be that McCain prepped very well, since this forum was after all more conducive to conservative viewpoints than liberal ones. But we've seen McCain without a script, and he is not usually this fast.
There have been legitimate questions about exactly where McCain was, and it has been proven that he was not in the euphemistic "cone of silence" alleged by host, Rev. Rick Warren. It's all very interesting to follow, but I wonder if it matters in the scheme of things. After all, the public seemed rather disinterested when George W. Bush seemed to be wired in one of his debates against John Kerry in 2004. How are we going to get them to care about this, even if McCain is proven to have cheated?
