Rand Paul has "mutually agreed" to no longer write for the Washington Times. Home of the birthers and every far right conspiracy theory.

New ideas at the Washington Times consists of this:

Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan. Real American. Real Patriot.  Obama is a communist wanting to destroy America. Cut the spending as government over reach is destroying the economy. Don't cut the spending because America is becoming a second rate nation. Real America is real America. Liberal Media is Liberal Media. Ted Nugent for President. Ronald Reagan, "Tear Down this Wall", Obamacare, Long Live Sarah Pailin.
Exciting new ideas at the Washington Times
Sarah Palin real leader. Washington Liberals are RINOs and Communist. Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan. Real American. Real Patriot.  Obama is a communist wanting to destroy America. Obmacare is evil. Cut the spending as Barack Obama racked up $17 trillion in debt. Cut the taxes because cut the taxes. Support the tax reform. Liberal Media is Liberal Media. Real America is real America.  Ted Nugent for President. "Tear Down this Wall", Ronald Reagan, great President,  Obamacare is bad, Long Live Sarah Palin.
(not quite actual articles but pretty much

So this is just laughable.

The Washington Times said Tuesday that it had independently reviewed Mr. Paul’s columns and op-eds and published a correction to his Sept. 20 column in which the senator had failed to attribute a passage that first appeared in The Week.
The newspaper and the senator mutually agreed to end his weekly column, which has appeared each Friday since the summer.
“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,” Times Editor John Solomon said.
“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,” Mr. Solomon said.
Standard statements are Ronald Reagan cut taxes. New thought in the GOP says taxes were cut by Reagan. (Reality = highest tax hiking President in history but forget that as it was on the poors).

It really is hard to plagiarise a Republican. This is a conversation with them: tax cuts cuts, tax cuts tax cuts, stop the spending stop the spending,spending, spending cuts on that are bad and communist,  cuts on military are bad, stop abortion. Women who get  abortions are bad baby killers. Bomb the Middle East. Cut the taxes.  

Rand Paul achieved such a level of dumb this happened :-

The newspaper and the senator mutually agreed to end his weekly column, which has appeared each Friday since the summer.r

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
