Today, Meet CopyCat Boy, Serial Plagiarist

Damn the "hacks," "haters," and "footnote police" was the response of CopyCat Boy — Senator Randal Howard "Rand" Paul (R-KY) — to multiple accusations of plagiarism in the past few weeks. The Teabagger pinup boy is a Moron through and through. Dr. Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) said to a contemprary writer: " I found your manuscript to be good and original. However, the part that was original was not good and the part that was good was not original." Those words, though likely apocryphal, fit Copycat Boy like a glove. When the Teabagger sumbitch dies, they'll have to use a corkscrew to get 'im into the ground. If this is (fair & balanced) disgust, so be it.
