McCain Intern

Chef Boyarthief

4/15/2008 12:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Always blame the intern: John McCain's campaign tells TMZ that it was a "low-level unpaid staff debacle" that resulted in a bunch of Food Network recipes being fobbed off as Cindy McCain's on the Senator's web page.


We're told that the intern in question has been "swiftly dealt with" and that the site's already been taken down. Apparently, McCain's peeps say, the web intern saw fit to "add Rachael Ray to our policy team" (so droll, those McCainites) and they apologize to the Food Network for the recipe-filching, as first observed by the Huffington Post.

Fear not, though: Cindy's "recipes" have generated "a tremendous amount of public interest" and they're working on getting the page back up -- with Mrs. McCain's real recipes. Stouffer's creamed chipped beef on white toast, anyone?

Who gives a crap? Or more appropriately who turns to candidates for recipes?

At 3am a phone rings in the White House...its GUMMI and he needs J Mac's famous recipes for chicken wings. If we elect Obama who will Gummi turn to? Stop trying to be relevant Harv.

She looks great    

Hard to know who to root for - a troublemaking attorney with too much time on her hands, an anachronistic plagiarizing Presidential campaign who is servicing the ignorant "bitter" masses threatened by powerful women who need their First Lady cooking in the kitchen.

Meanwhile, the world is unraveling and THESE are issues of controversy?

McCain should be utilizing his website and his wife's contributions for more meaningful purposes, and then perhaps he wouldn't need to steal.

That lawyer who fingered McCain needs to get a life.

Like Cindy McCain has ever cooked a meal in her life. She was born a gazillionaire! she has no need to sweat it out in the kitchen like a real wife and mother. And she stole drugs from the charity she supported. There, I said it. Sher is a rich drug addict. Just like every other blond bimbo on this site. Why do you think McCain left his first wife and married this amazingly rich young thing 17 years his junior. Yup sounds just like the rest of us!

For all you repugnants who think this shouldn't even be mentioned- typical of you lowlifes and follows the Rove Doctrine quite well- lie your asses offf- the public will never know. That attitude is the reason republicans will be in short supply in the Congress after Jan. 2009. We're tired of republican crap- why would someone bother to lie about recipes? Because they're lowlifes!

I believe Cindy's normal recipe calls for an amble helping of Percocet and Vicodin sprinkled on whatever she eats. To make the dish more exotic, the drugs should be stolen from poor children in developing nations. For those who think I am kidding, Google it!
