So apparently the McCain’s have been trotting out this story, first that Cindy merely agreed to take one of the children at Mother Theresa’s orphanage (campaign bio, 2004):
During one of those missions, on a visit to Mother Teresa’s Orphanage Cindy agreed to bring two babies in need of medical attention back to the United States. One of those babies is now a happy and healthy little girl named Bridget McCain.
And the website February 2008, which suggests that Mother Theresa convinced her to adopt one of the children:
On one of those missions, Mother Teresa convinced Cindy to take two babies in need of medical attention to the United States. One of those babies is now their adopted daughter, 15 year old Bridget McCain.
Finally, during the Rick Warren Forum, the question about Mother Theresa was one of the few that McCain teared up during.
The inconvenient truth, however, is that Cindy McCain never met or even spoke with Mother Theresa on that trip. So McCain teared up at the Rick Warren Forum for a story about Mother Theresa that was a complete fabrication. Awesome. Stay classy John McCain!
Also, apparently Cindy McCain’s “family recipes” were pulled from the campaign website because they were found to be directly copied from the Food Network website. I mean that isn’t even angering- it’s just kind of pathetic. Who cares what her recipes are? Is it so important that you have to copy them off of ANOTHER WEBSITE (and risk getting caught)? I guess image is that important to them.
