I'm waiting for a "Simpsons did it" Rand Paul finale.

You know he is starting to look like just another empty suit at this point.  You mean he can not formulate an original opinion?  His dad might be coo coo for cocoa puffs but he is his own coo coo.

You can reference facts and even ideas from others but you have to acknowledge them as a source and it should be used to provide the information that you used in formulating your opinion.  It should not be simply taken as a substitute for your opinion.  Paul now (IMHO) needs to put out a piece that clearly defines Rand Paul and his stance and opinions on the key issues and how and why he thinks them correct.  Because right now,  He looks like a guy that wanted to be a senator so bad that he just picked ideas, opinions, etc. from others to make him presentable to the voters.

He spun this persona of this intellectual randian.  Well bud, unless you want to spend the rest of your career having to sling shiat in the Kentucky hinterlands then you best prove it.  Your bona fides are gone.  It is put up time.

I think he's safer sticking with cribbed Wikipedia passages than he was with neo-Confederate Jack "The Southern Avenger" Hunter as his social media coordinator and advisor.

You hate him just because you're a liberal, and showing proof of what he did is a lie. YOU are the real plagiarist. Goddam it, he'd duel you over noticing his plagiarism, because you just don't bring up the fact that someone is a plagiarist, that's discussed behind closed doors.

Hey, academic dishonesty is the only way Baylor kids are able to pass their classes. Between the mandatory church and praying to Aqua Buddha, shiat gets hard.

Running total:
2 speeches
parts of his book
and an op-ed

Has he publicly stated that he knows and understands the definition of plagiarism yet?

Bonus: He has been removing his speeches on his website.

Imagine what Rand Paul could do with a 3D Printer and a Creation Machine and a gullible press.

So he is sponging off someone else's work. He seems to be fine with freeholding.

I hope that doesn't go against his public stances. That would look hypocritical.

You know, when the world starts to notice that you're doing something wrong, most people would then stop doing it.

I don't think extended magazines will help Rand Paul at this point, he is going to need cheat codes for all these duels.
 
2013-11-05 12:18:20 PM  
Uh oh, Rand Paul is putting on his duelin' gloves.  You're gonna get a duelin' you ain't never gonna forget.

RAND PAUL is not just some rich kid hack.  RAND PAUL is an authentic countrified, Kentucky-fried gunslinger!
 
2013-11-05 12:18:54 PM  
FFS, does he not realize that anybody can read Wikipedia?  Someone that stupid doesn't deserve to serve in public office.  But then, Kentucky elected him.

That would be the statement if s/he'd written "Rand Paul: speech writing ::  Anthony Weiner:sexting" but no we're all pretty uncomfortably sure that was THE weiner.

No, but both men know that doing what they did was wrong and went on doing it anyway. They couldn't stop themselves.

Funnily enough, it is against the Kentucky constitution for a representative to have anything to do with dueling.

Any KY Farkers with your internet degree in law want to try to oust him?

RAND PAUL's fans don't read wikipedia.  They read conservapedia because they only read The Truth.
 
2013-11-05 12:22:37 PM  
Look, all of the words are originally printed in the dictionary so anything anyone says is plagiarized. Stop hating!
 
2013-11-05 12:23:59 PM  
Next time Rand gives a press conference, a reporter should ask "Mr. Paul, that thing you just said, who wrote that?" just to watch him squirm/turn red/explode.

Weeks ago, he should have said "Yeah, I should have pointed out I got that from Wikipedia.  My bad" and it would have been over.

Can we hope that this will also destroy Paul's career?

Rachel Maddow does it too and you libs worship her. Meanwhile Americans die in Benghazi and you are more interested in some copied words! So good luck getting Obamacare on a broken website a 3rd grader could have made better.
 
2013-11-05 12:27:14 PM  
He should at least crib from a source nobody else reads, like Encarta or Yahoo.

You crammed way too much in to these few sentences. Take a deep breath and go one at a time.

Kept this troll alt tucked away for awhile, huh?


Try to be more topical, Benghazi never really became a thing.
 
2013-11-05 12:34:41 PM  
So, who would would win in a duel, Weiner's junk or Rand Paul? I'm going with Carlos Danger's jizzinator. He could probably blast that derp-fro right off Rand Balls' head. Then he'd take a selfie and send it to some biatches. Because biatches like selfies.
 
2013-11-05 12:35:38 PM  
... Is it me, or has people's ability to tell the difference between troll and satire been completely destroyed?

He shoved in Benghazi, is making fun of someone else's baseless assertion yesterday that "MADDOW DOES IT TOO!", and also shoehorned in the obamacare website. There is NO WAY this person is serious.
