Evidence has come out that John McCain plagiarized parts of a recent speech on the conflict in Georgia. It is being blamed on a lower level lacky, but seriously, foreign policy is supposed to be McCain’s strongpoint, this is fairly ridiculous. As for those who would say it’s no big deal, Wikipedia is open source…if I were grading his speech as a paper and checking for plagiarism, it would fail. A couple political science prof’s agree. I agree with most of what they said, especially that McCain should at least keep his speech writers as accountable as undergrad are to their professors.
