Refer Him to Student Judicial Services!

Oh noes! It looks like the McCain campaign is being run by a bunch of first year community college English students. According to Taegan Goddard at CQ Politics, it looks like McCain's latest speech on the situation in Georgia was plagiarized from wikipedia.

Here is an example:

After the Russian Revolution of 1917, Georgia had a brief period of independence as a Democratic Republic (1918-1921), which was terminated by the Red Army invasion of Georgia. Georgia became part of the Soviet Union in 1922 and regained its independence in 1991. Early post-Soviet years was marked by a civil unrest and economic crisis. (Wikipedia)


After a brief period of independence following the Russian revolution, the Red Army forced Georgia to join the Soviet Union in 1922. As the Soviet Union crumbled at the end of the Cold War, Georgia regained its independence in 1991, but its early years were marked by instability, corruption, and economic crises. (McCain)

Well, McCain has built his entire platform around ripping off the Bush teams foreign policy, so this should really come as no surprise to anyone.
