    Hindrocket sez: "it's certainly fair to say that if a Republican made an otherwise-unsupported charge against a Democrat, and turned out to have a documented history as a plagiarist, that fact would be considered relevant."

    Two problems with that sentence: one, I doubt any thinking Democrat would consider an act of plagiarism in college their ace in the hole against a Republican making a similar claim; and two, it's no longer an "otherwise-unsupported" charge of violent outburst against Melody:

    Democrats and TIME have found witnesses to corroborate parts of Townsel's story. Republicans point out that she is a Democrat who was a member of the Dallas chapter of Mothers Opposing Bush during the 2004 campaign. Townsel tells TIME she did public relations work for the organization but insists her story about her encounter with Bolton--which "had a tremendous, terrible impact on me"--is true.

    My thoughts are with you, Melody.  My only concern now is that, since you made it known first, whoever was planning to use this plagiarism thing against you will simply look shocked and claim "why, I never would dream of doing such a thing!"
