Oddly, it seems acceptable to go after Cindy McCain for her recipes while it’s not okay to go after Michelle for her statements on the stump:
Cindy McCain’s been caught with her hand in the cookie jar again.
McCain’s recipe for oatmeal-butterscotch cookies, published on the Family Circle Web site earlier in the month, appears to be an almost exact replica of a Hershey’s recipe. (See below for both recipes.)
This is not the first time John McCain’s wife has been caught up in a cooking controversy.
In April, McCain was accused of trying to pass off a recipe from the Food Network’s Web site as her own.
To paraphrase Sen. Dick Durbin, the hottest ring in hell is reserved for those who attack Cindy McCain and her cookie recipe. Well, maybe not the hottest ring, but a 350-degree ring for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
As for Michelle Obama’s cookies:
Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle Obama, offered up her own recipe of shortbread cookies with a zest of lemon and orange, and a “cheeky kick of almond liqueur Amaretto.”
Do you know what I bet is really good? Eating about a dozen of Michelle’s cookies while chewing a a handful of Barack’s nicotine gum.
