Rand Paul likes to lift speech material straight from Wikipedia

Sort of surprised i dont see this up anywhere.



Rand Paul denies plagiarism charges, blames ‘haters’ ’

By Aaron Blake, Published: OCTOBER 31, 10:59 AM ET

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says in a new interview that charges that he has plagiarized Wikipedia in his speeches are an effort by "haters" to bring him down.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow first accused Paul of lifting passages from Wikipedia's summary of the movie "Gattaca." Other reports suggest he has used Wikipedia's verbiage while describing the movie "Stand and Deliver."

Paul said during an interview with Fusion that he sufficiently credited the movies rather than Wikipedia and that his speeches are not supposed to be meticulously footnoted academic papers.

"We borrowed the plot lines from 'Gattaca,' the movie, and I gave credit to the people who wrote the movie," the potential 2016 presidential candidate said. "Nothing I said was not given attribution to where it came from.

"I didn't claim that I created the movie 'Gattaca'; that's what's absurd about this."

While Paul made no secret he was talking about the movie, the plagiarism charge has more to do with whether he appropriated Wikipedia's description of the film without citing the Web site.

Many politicians have been accused of plagiarism. Vice President Biden's 1988 presidential campaign was derailed amid multiple charges of plagiarism. President Obama was also accused of plagiarizing Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Paul also targeted Maddow and others who have pushed the story.

"The rest of it's making a mountain out of a molehill from people I think basically who are political enemies and have an ax to grind," Paul said. "This is really about information and attacks coming from haters. The person who's leading this attack -- she's been spreading hate on me for about three years now."

Outside of the special insanity of loser616, I'm not sure it gets a lot dumber than this.

Whoever you're obliquely referring to, are those people running for president?

The logic here is that attacking the messenger is "an important truth", not the usual logical fallacy.

To be fair, there's a big difference between referencing pop culture and lifting from Wikipedia pages on pop culture.

Rand is certainly not like his father. He's been a huge disappointment.

I'm going to treat this information pretty much the way democrats treated the information that Bill Clinton was lying about where he was walking Little Bill. It's wrong, it's disappointing and I'm very willing to overlook it.

Progressives have overlooked their own such as Biden doing it, in law school and running for office later, as well as exaggerating his academic record. He still got elected.Sure he quit his presidential campaign due to plagiarizing Neil Kinnock's speech but he's still gained political office and is now Vice President.

Barack Obama took from MLK and JFK; he claims he and Hillary wrote the speech using this together. http://fusion.net/leadership/story/r...giarism-175235

Liberal writer, Doris Kearns Goodwin was found guilty of plagiarism as an author. Yet, she still won a Pulitzer Prize.

Joe Carr
Senate candidate from Tennessee
http://fusion.net/leadership/story/r...giarism-175235
He told the Tennessean, “When we were crafting our answers, I went to various sources — not just Heritage, but a number of resources — to do the research,” he said. “I certainly would never imply that my thoughts or ideas or views are exclusively my own, and I certainly didn’t represent them in the questionnaire that way.”

Plagiarizing an op-ed from one week earlier? That's efficiency.

Rand had better just pack it in, he's been called out by the cesspoolians.

It's pretty telling that the usual suspects find it more interesting that Wikipedia got some sentences lifted than the President of the United States willfully lying to the American people. Of course, Rachel Maddow isn't pushing the President's lies so her little army aren't so concerned about that.

We're too stupid. If he hadn't fibbed a little, we'd have clung to our bibles and guns and this wonderful achievement never would have been granted us.
