blue plagiarism special

clifford irving, jayson blair, stephen glass...cindy mccain???

huffpo:

it seems that cindy mccain, john mccain's perfect, blonde beer-baroness wife is about to find herself painted as the latest example of plagiarism on the campaign trail.

this past sunday, lauren handel, an eagle-eyed attorney from new york, was searching for a specific recipe from giada delaurentis, a chef on the food network. yet whenever she googled the different ingredients in the recipe, the oddest thing happened: not only did the food network's site come up, as expected, but so did john mccain's campaign site.

on a section of mccain's site called "cindy's recipes," you can find seven recipes attributed to cindy mccain, each with the heading "mccain family recipe." ms. handel quickly realized that some of the "mccain family recipes," were in fact, word-for-word copies of recipes on the food network site.

at least three of the "mccain family recipes" appear to be lifted directly from the food network, while at least one is a rachael ray recipe with minor changes.
you can examine both sets of recipes on the huffpo page.

of course, the media will probably only report that michelle obama's recipe for tollhouse cookies calls for "bitter" chocolate.
