Oh for the love of god, who really gives a fark if he copied some information for a speech from Wikipedia.  At least for once a politician bothered researching the bullshiat they were saying.  Folks should be very impressed by the fact his speeches and articles were that well written and thought out, regardless of missing a citation occasionally.

I think that "We are pleased to add Senator Paul to our lineup of fearless, original thought leaders." has now replaced "if it weren't for my horse, I'd wouldn't have spent that year in college" for sentence most likely to cause blood to shoot out of your nose.

Subby, Rand got fired from the Washington Times, not the Post.

But congrats to Deadbart News. Wonder how much they'll be paying him to copypaste press releases from Heritage.

I initially just skimmed the article and read that sentence as "thoughtless, original fear leaders". It made more sense that way.

So wait, Rand writes (had written) a weekly column for a semi-major newspaper, then gets fired over plagiarism allegations....which results in a major restructuring of his office?

Is he actually writing these things, or does he just have a bunch of cronies writing his material that he signs off on?
 
2013-11-07 08:07:13 AM
He was axed by the Washington Times, not the Post.

Washington Post: Famous for breaking Watergate, now dying and losing quality like every other paper in the country (Bezos willing).

Washington Times: Rightwing screed that exists for Moonie brainwashing of the planet. Its pretty telling when even they don't want you.

There is a mysterious writing poltergeist that plagues the Rand family. He used to send articles to white supremacist publications under Ron's name too.

Really?  Do you think any politician writes their own stuff?  When a senator speaks in a handful of places on a day do you suppose he stays up all night before that writing?

I'd imagine Senator Paul tells his writing team 'hey, I think so and so is really important and I want my column to be about it this week.  Can you all do some research and lets talk tomorrow about it'

The next day they discuss and he tells them what stuff he wants in it and what he wants the message to be.

The next day he reads it, requests changes, and then its sent to the newspaper.

The problem with Rand in the past has been the uncovering of folks in his organization which would have immediately been drummed out by any other reasonable person once discovered.  Rand, however, took the staffers 90-day old "youthful indiscretions" of playing in a White Power band, portraying a pro-secessionist character named "The Southern Avenger" and well as blogging about celebrating the birthday of John Wilkes Booth as nothing to be concerned about, like every org has THAT person in it.

It reflects badly when he has such knuckleheads in his ranks.

Perfect picture to go with a story about writing for Breitbart.

Credibility of Rand Paul now is now gone from a negative number to an imaginary number.

I copy Wikipedia and claim it's mine...

I'm amused by the cognitive dissonance of the apologists dismissing RP's plagiarism of Wikipedia because Wikipedia isn't that good, but it was good enough for RP to include it in his speeches verbatim.

If there's anyone who can appreciate the willingness to sink to any depths to pick up a couple of lines or more, it's Breitbart.

If in fact they were well-written and well-thought-out, he wasn't writing them.  He was copying them word for word from other's work.  From that bastion of creative thinking and intelligent analysis WIKIPEDIA, no less.  Not only is he seemingly not capable of expressing himself in his own words, he's not even intelligent enough to do a good job of faking it.

The guy who committed multiple counts of plagiarism counts as "original"?  Oh yeah, he's going to be a perfect fit at Breitbart.
