2. OMG, they threw in the POW thing. Is this a joke?
"Nicolle Wallace, a spokeswoman for Mr. McCain, said on Sunday night that Mr. McCain had not heard the broadcast of the event while in his motorcade and heard none of the questions. The insinuation from the Obama campaign that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, cheated is outrageous, Ms. Wallace said."
