Stolen ‘Cross’?

John McCain’s fond of telling a story about how, as a POW in Vietnam, one of his captors came into his hut on Christmas and drew a cross in the dirt. “We were two Christians,” McCain often says, and even told the tale at Rick Warren’s ranch this weekend. Well, some are wondering if the Republican presidential candidate didn’t steal that story from The Gulag Archipelago by Russian novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn, whom McCain has cited as a favorite author. On a related note, remember when Cindy McCain was accused of plagiarizing recipes? [Daily Kos]

    Reagan did the same thing, blending movie plots with reality when it suited his message, and adamantly insisting they were true.

    mccain is OLD, and CONFUSED, and, when he’s not being just senile, he’s DISHONEST. There’s just no way this guy is qualified to be President.

    (Sorry. Possibly too much coffee this morning…)
