Get that Obama person (or people) on the phone STAT!

Andrea Mitchell, today during Meet the Press (h/t: NewsBuster's D.S. Hube):

". . .The Obama people must feel that he didn't do quite as well as they might have wanted to in that context, because that -- what they're putting out privately is that McCain may not have been in the cone of silence and may have had some ability to overhear what the questions were to Obama."

All because McCain actually ANSWERED the questions that were asked. Obviously he must have cheated, because there's no way that 2 national campaigns, 20-plus years of Senate service, multiple town hall-style appearances and countless interviews with a skeptical press could have prepared him to answer questions in front of a friendly crowd. There's just no way it's possible!

If I were a McCain campaign rep right now, I would totally call her out on this and put her credibility on the line. I want names of these "people", I want exact words--you know, I want you to be a JOURNALIST!

And if she can't deliver on these basic goods. . .well, I think the McCain camp should demand a retraction of the statement done in front of at least as big an audience as MTP. Unsourced allegations seeing the light of day in major media? I think a retraction is the only recourse for her. How's that pill taste, Ms Mitchell?

And IF, by some miracle, some faceless staff puke becomes associated with "Obama's people" that put this out, then I think Sen. McCain should call on his esteemed colleague from the highest deliberative body in the land to terminate this person's employment. "New Politics" demands nothing else. Oh, and apologize.

Or is that above your paygrade, too?

Seriously, Sen McCain, this is an affront on your integrity--in a manner that we have now seen all too well from the Obama machine. You CAN NOT let this situation stand. Counter now, counter loud, and don't stop harping on this until it is closed properly by the Obama camp.

Nothing but upside.
