    The issue really isn't that he plagiarized.  the issue is how he's responded to being caught.  Deny.  Down play.  Go after the accusers.  

    he should have fessed up and then made a joke about it.  But instead, he decided to make a stand.  On something so stupid.

    Yes..in fact if someone puts their name to the bottom of an op-ed column that gets published regularly in a national newspaper then they better have written it. Otherwise that is plaigerism as well.

    The Washington Times has cancelled his column.  Plaigerism is dishonest. It's not a mistake when it happens on the level that Rand Paul has committed it. There is a pattern.

    Added to that..I am sorry..but he plaigerized wikipedia for a speech? That is just wrong on so many levels. If I had used Wikipedia has a primary source for any one of my college projects or presentations, I would have gotten an immediate failing grade. So not only does the guy plaigerize, he uses lazy sources.

    Reason with some perspective:

    There are two scandals regarding a national politician's veracity this week. One is about a president lying about his signature, transformative legislative achievement, while his administration lies and prevaricates some more in the face of being caught selling the American public a bill of goods. The second initially centered around a senator lifting movie-description passages from Wikipedia in his speeches. You could almost see the thought bubble around Rand Paul's head–how could they possibly be nitpicking me in this of all weeks? But that is exactly the wrong response, both externally and internally, as new revelations make even more clear.

    If anyone is worried that the existence of this thread will cause them to forget about how much they hate Obama, by all means start the tenth and eleventh threads on how you thought that Obamacare required insurers to sell exactly the same plans for exactly the same price for all time.

    Re: If you call out Rand Paul for something like plagarism, that makes you a

    It’s been a tough week for Rand Paul. The Kentucky Senator has faced a growing wave of accusations of plagiarism in his speeches and writings. The instances of plagiarism started with the somewhat absurd with Rachel Maddow calling Paul out on giving a speech with lines swiped from the Gattaca movie Wikipedia page, but throughout the week more new accusations began to pile up. The most serious (so far) being the almost verbatim, unattributed reuse of a The Week essay in Paul's weekly Washington Times op-ed. (You can see the offending paragraphs here.)

    On Tuesday, the Washington Times said after an independent review of Paul’s work, the two were parting ways. “The newspaper and the senator mutually agreed to end his weekly column, which has appeared on each Friday in the newspaper since the summer,” a story in the Washington Times said.

    Washington Times editor John Solomon had this to say about Paul’s work for the paper:

    “We expect our columnists to submit original work and to properly attribute material, and we appreciate that the senator and his staff have taken responsibility for an oversight in one column.”
    “We also appreciate the original insights he has shared with our readers over the last few months and look forward to future contributions from Sen. Paul and any other members of Congress who take the time to help educate our readers with original thought leadership pieces.”

    He's the guy who is all aflutter over Obama's big stick.  And, unlike this case, actually plagerized.  Not sure this is the same.

    Obama, the guy who didn't plagerize, but lied about being able to keep your health insurance and your doctor.

    I think that you are protesting too much, while completely ignoring the ramifications and dishonesty of Obama's promise that we couuld keep out health insurance plans, and keep out doctors.

    No, you questioned Obama so that clearly makes you a racist. Keep the smears straight...

    Especially when the forums are stuffed to bursting on the subject you think is more important....

    Watson, the trouble is that quotes without context obsure the fact that the quotes were all humorous jabs. I'd hope that people would understand that a satirical Star Wars reference is nothing like Rand Paul's remark, but then you came along.

    Keep telling yourself that. As long as you believe your lies that's all that matters. Enjoy!

    [/QUOTE]

    Does Rand Paul get the benefit of "context"? Was Rand Paul being sarcastic and making a pun by saying "hacks and haters"?
    Just as with carrying the Confederate flag, or most everything else, WDYWN gives himself and progressives the mulligan,......

    And matty forewarns us, dont dare bash the pathetic snarling Rachel Maddow, that is homophobic, dont you know....the lesbian card, dont ya know.

    In 2010 on his blog “Open Salon,” Michael Rodgers of North Port, Fla., wrote a blog post titled “Rachel Maddow Plagiarized My Blog!

    (Read Related: More accusations of Maddow plagiarism emerge after Rare report)

    “Don’t get me wrong, I love Rachel Maddow,” Rodgers wrote. “Truth be told, I’m a huge fan. So, if she wanted something from my blog, all she had to do was ask. I would have given willingly because that’s the kind of guy I am.”

    The plagiarism in question involves a comparison Rodgers made between the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 with the often-forgot about 1979 Ixtoc I oil spill in the same area. The liberal blogger noted that “the oil industry hasn’t advanced their methods of plugging holes in the ocean floor or cleaning up their messes.”

    Rodgers then became perturbed upon seeing his own unique angle being copied on Maddow’s program: “I’m sitting there Wednesday evening watching MSNBC and there is Rachel Maddow…TELLING THE SAME DAMN STORY!!”

    [/QUOTE]

    Where's the plagiarism part?

    (And that I even need to "forewarn" anyone here says more about y'all than about me.  It happens all the time when her name is brought up.  The conservative site that published this accusation likewise was filthy with homophobic, misogynist and sexist remarks...hence the 'warning'.)
