She suggests Rand Paul (and I guess by extension perhaps you) possibly does not understand what plagarism is.
Here is the piece where she goes speech by speech with the Wikipedia text below his speech.
As she explained, this is about "using the words of someone else as your own and not attributing them". It's not the worst offense in the world. But it is reminiscent of the battles with tea partiers in this forum who seem allergic to ever admitting they have made a mistake and would rather contort logic and make preposterous claims than admit wrongdoing.
He should just admit it and move on.
Just like O'Bama does. KEWL
