UPDATE: ABC News' Ron Claiborne, traveling with the McCain campaign, reports that McCain senior adviser Charlie Black would not say whether people around McCain while he was en route to Rick Warren's forum had access to blackberries and cell phones from which they could have tipped off Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., about the questions.
"There's no reason we would do that," was all Black would say, though quite obviously there is a reason.

Obama lost. That’s the story here.
They might as well get some practice in, they’re gonna need it.
The additional story is that Obama is a sore loser and instead of accepting the fact that McCain wiped the floor with him, he is whining instead.
Liberal playbook 101, if confronted with defeat let loose the dogs of injustice and cry conspiracy!!! For example, liberals never lose elections, they are cheated by voting machines or police with dogs or whatever the liberal imagination can conjer.
Actually, they’re cooperating with Team Obama to move the “Obama strongly supports infanticide” story off page one. That’s what’s really behind this.
Maybe it’s just me and I’m too sensitive, but.......
It seems like this is part of a pattern, where the Obama campaign complains about this or that, and says that something is unfair. Here it seems we’re hearing more stories about how the process of the Rick Warren meetings somehow was unfair to Obama, rather than hearing more about the content of what Obama said.
They really need to give this a rest. It is pathetic. What a bunch of whining losers. Now that it has come out that Obama actaully had one more question in advance than McCain did, I imagine this cry of “cheating” will probably quickly go away.
Talk radio should just keep replaying the soundbite of Obama saying, “I actually cheated on this one” over and over again.
Yeah, McCain and his blackberry made Obama sound like a stuttering fool more interested in covering up his core values than answering questions.
That's why the MSM is now pushing the meme that the 'real' story is not that lil' Barry lost, but McCain must have cheated! He broke the cone of silence! He must have had a shoe phone!
Calling the charge a "blatant falsehood" Davis said "1.) There's not one shred of evidence that it's true; 2.) In his official correspondence to both campaigns, Pastor Rick Warren provided both candidates with information regarding the topic areas to be covered, which Barack Obama acknowledged during the forum when asked about Pastor Warren's idea of an emergency plan for orphans and Obama said, 'I cheated a little bit. I actually looked at this idea ahead of time, and I think it is a great idea;' 3.) John McCain actually requested that he and Barack Obama do the forum together on stage at the same time, making these kinds of after-the-fact complaints moot."
Obama is coming off as a crybaby, whining and screaming "cheater!" in order to hide his own shortcomings and lack of connection to average folks.
Mr. McCain answered his questions straightforwardly; Mr. Obama did not. He never does.
Their young inexperienced ninny guy got his crock cleaned by an old fart and it just has to stick in their craw.
However, all their gnashing of teeth and wearing of race card sack cloth and ashes will take away from Obamas major gaff “Above My Pay Grade” comment.
People with common sense will see through the medias In The Tank for Obama moments that this guy is a novice when it comes to his core values.
Shame on you Obama media, ABC, NBC, PMSNBC, CNN and others.
Obama is tripping over his own...
This thing is percolating nicely. Let it hit the news tonight, then hit back with a LOUD townhall meeting challenge tomorrow. Any time, any place.
Yeah, hi, I'll take a cone of silence please...thanks"
