“Rand Paul is not only too dishonest to come up with his own material, he’s too stupid to at least plagiarize from a reliable source”

See the quotation marks?

They are an indication that I am not claiming that sentence as my own.  Hereafter, I am telling you that I got it from commenter “Mr. Flibble” at Crooks and Liars.

All of that is called ‘citing my source.’

I have no idea how authoritative “Mr. Flibble” is, but I’ll lay down a buck or two that whoever it is has taught a class in high school or, as I did, in college where someone passed off made a feeble attempt to pass off a Wikipedia entry as an original essay.

Unsourced, of course.

(For those keeping score at home – and in light of the fact that we’re inside a month away from the 35th anniversary of the assassination – the idiot who tried to get away with it in my class cut-and-pasted from Harvey Milk‘s Wikipedia entry.)

All of that, brings us to Ayn, er…, Rand Paul.

Rand Paul was speaking at crazyland Liberty University today and went off on a long tangent about eugenics, and how “the evil, autocratic state” can, if allowed, determine one’s destiny. How that was supposed to help Ken Cuccinelli in his gubernatorial race is anyone’s guess, ostensibly the reason he was there in Virginia. But, as with Ted Cruz, everything they do is geared towards 2016. Rand Paul has been running hard for the evangelicals lately, but cribbing from a wikipedia entry probably isn’t going to impress anyone.

Certainly not.

On the other hand, it does make me wonder how much of his own work he actually did while at Duke University medical school.

I guess only Aqua Buddah (or perhaps the rotting corpse of Richard Nixon, who went to law school at Duke) knows for sure.
