  •  Good point. And my personal perspective on all (5+ / 0-)

    this is that this is actually a fiendishly clever ploy by Rand Paul. Don't you see? Once it's revealed that everything he's ever written is plagiarized he'll be able to claim it's not an issue! He's going for the tried and true tactic of Republicans to rebrand something by so over using it that the term loses all meaning and relevance. You might think I'm snarking but I'm part way serious about this. We've seen this tactic before -- call everything "Communist!" or compare everyone to Hitler and suddenly the terms mean nothing. After the 37th plagiarism reveal will anyone really care if Paul plagiarizes a 38th or 217th time?
