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.

snowshovel: 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?


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.

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

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.

Alphax: IlGreven: Rand Paul told the NY Times yesterday: "I can go back to being a doctor anytime, if they're tired of me."

[i386.photobucket.com image 299x156]

He threatening to quit his job.. as if that would be a bad thing.

I can't help but wonder who would be desperate enough for medical care to go to him, though.


Someday New Galt's Gulch will need eyeball medics. As long as they don't check his resume too closely, RAND PAUL's a shoe-in.

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

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.
