In the libbie mind (heh), a lib's plagiarization entitles him to the Vice Presidency. However, if a Republican's aide plagiarizes a speech on a website, then break out the pitchforks!

Our friends on the left are always finding ways to sink to new depths of hypocrisy.

Scott Brown was an epic mistake to begin with. He never should've been elected and during earlier, more dignified times, when standards were much, much higher, this fluff would not have gotten a second look.

But this news is not surprising. These tea party/GOP people really stink. Good news for the far superior Warren.

The chances of an extremist kook like Warren beating a moderate like Scott Brown are pretty small. Even if she somehow wins, that's just more proof that liberal women are ~really~ ugly.

Brown is barely to the right of a dead Kennedy. Lefties has a penchant for plagerism. I guess this just makes Brown more like Obama.

Words, just words.......

Why, "poor Scotty"? the left doesn't think plagiarism is a bad thing. Just ask Vice President Joe Biden.

And I'll bet you voted for him.

It's "poor Scotty" because he's having a rough week.

Whether 'the left' agrees with plagiarism or not doesn't matter. I believe it's always wrong. I also understand that perfection doesn't exist, so I don't disqualify anyone for making a mistake. I actually like Scott Brown.
