McCain's Recipegate

Senator John McCain's prim and proper wife Cindy has been putting "family recipes" on her husband's campaign website, when in fact they are direct rip-offs from the Food Network. After the Huffington Post broke the story (with side-by-side comparisons, including one to Giada's turkey sausage farfalle), McCain's camp blamed it all on some unsuspecting intern. Writer David Weiner isn't buying it: "Personally, I'm not sure how an intern can be responsible for messing up the McCain "family" recipes. Did the intern lose Cindy's recipe box only to haphazardly try to replace them with Food Network recipes? If only we could all steal and lie and lay it off on the unpaid help." [HuffPo]
