Republican presidential nominee John McCain's wife, Cindy McCain, has once again cooked up some controversy by shoplifting a recipe. And this time, former president Bill Clinton was also busted for the same thing!
Cindy McCain and Bill Clinton, along with Michelle Obama, the wife of Sen. Barack Obama (who was endorsed by Al Gore last night) submitted their cookie recipes for the 5th Presidential Bake-Off in Family Circle.
The problem? Bill Clinton and Cindy McCain swiped theirs.
The July issue features a recipe for "Cindy McCain's Oatmeal-Butterscotch Cookies" - "an absolute must whenever the whole family gets together," Cindy McCain raves to Family Circle - only they're from Hershey.
As for Bill Clinton, he attributes his oatmeal cookie recipe to a longtime family cook... when it's really by a cook named Betty Crocker.
"I did not have relations with that recipe."
Earlier this year, a John McCain intern lifted some of Rachael Ray's recipes, posting them as "Cindy's Recipes" on her husband's campaign site.
The intern was thrown under the bus and fired.
There's clearly a pattern emerging for Cindy, and when it comes to Bill Clinton, everything he does comes back to haunt him. Like Gina Gershon.
And to think, people say Michelle Obama is not American enough. At least she can come up with her own recipe ... or not get caught.
