Foreign Policy via Wiki

When a campaign's sole dig against their opponent is inexperience and unpreparedness, maybe they shouldn't go running to Wiki for speech snippets when an international crisis is developing:
A Wikipedia editor emailed Political Wire to point out some similarities between Sen. John McCain's speech today on the crisis in Georgia and the Wikipedia article on the country Georgia. Given the closeness of the words and sentence structure, most would consider parts of McCain's speech to be derived directly from Wikipedia.
Of course, if Sen. Obama had done the same thing, he would be given a free pass as well, right?!?
