    an incident of plagiarism 21 years ago mean that Melody's horrific experience with Bolton is irrelevant to his confirmation as ambassador to the UN?

    •  no, not on its face (none)
      And that's not what I tried to discuss.  I wasn't clear in my writing...It was the framing of the issue -- "republicans have dredged up" -- that bothered me.
    •  Yes, very possibly. (none)
      Tomato Observer's trying to be nice about this, but I won't. I don't know anything about this Melody person except what's showed up on this blog. I don't know if she had the "horrific experience with Bolton" or not. But there were some worrisome gaps in her first account that a couple of us questioned... and now - and I'll say this loud - repeated plagiarism is a really serious breach, for a college student, for any journalist. I don't know why more people on this blog aren't feeling like they, and Biden, have been played.
