So much for the moral highroad.

Interesting article about McCain's cute anecdotes about his religious roots.

You know... the one where he talks about the strength that seeing the cross gave him?

It was Christmas Day, we were allowed to stand outside of our cell for a few minutes, and those days we were not allowed to see or communicate with each other although we certainly did. And I was standing outside for a few minutes, outside my cell. He came walking up. He stood there for a minute and with his handle [sic] on the dirt in the courtyard he drew a cross and he stood there and a minute later, he rubbed it out and walked away. For a minute there, there was just two Christians worshiping together. I'll never forget that moment.

Turns out that it was plagiarized. As in... it is almost exactly as described in a book he is on the record as having read.

Wow. Good job McCain.

Funny... I though plagiarism was unethical.
