    Actually using proper citation might be new for politicians…

    I’m not a fan of Rand Paul, but for Chrissakes, he used the Wikipedia summarization of a movie. That’s it.

    I’m pretty sure that things more worthy of lampooning have been going on — I ‘d think Sungenis could get at least a week’s worth of material of Vicki at the TRS-80 trying to log onto a certain government website, for example.

    Possibly. Not necessarily, but certainly within the realm of possibility. Wikipedia: when it doesn’t have to be 100% true.

    Not lied but certainly not shown the sort of intellectual curiosity or willingness do do do more sophisticated research. You know, qualities a voter would want in a leader. We don’t need another Boy George playing dress up President.

    What rubbish. He briefly referenced a movie as part of a speech on a larger issue and needed a plot summary, so he grabbed one form Wikipedia. What kind of “more sophisticated research” was he supposed to do — read the back of the DVD or check out imdb?

    Just out of curiosity, have you ever criticized Obama or Biden for lacking “intellectual curiosity” or “the willingness to do more sophisticated research” for the times they’ve stolen speeches?

    Right. He gave a plot summary to a movie he referred to briefly in many, many speeches. And the fact that he didn’t take the trouble to take this minor point and put it wholly in his own words is a huge scandal in the minds of some.

    The phrase “tempest in a teacup” fails to adequately characterize the ridiculousness of this.

    Someone call the headsman and tell him to sharpen his axe!

    And it damaged Biden for 10 years.
    -
    Senator Rand just couldn’t understand he left out from where he was quoting from, which was Wikipedia.

    Not just once but multiple times and in each case failed to acknowledge where he crimped them from. That is plagiarism.

    @SUSAN NEWMAN

    Gee, I’ve gotten lots of info from Wikipedia.
    Does that mean I’ve been lied to all this time?

    -

    Only if you quote from it and don’t mention where you got it from. It isn’t about “lying.”

    @scpandich

    He quotes verbatim. Doesn’t even bother to have it rewritten or summarized further. Plagiarism is a serious thing.

    @scpandich

    You plagiarize you can lose your job. It is cheating when you claim it as your own as he did. No wonder cheating is so prevalent in our schools people have the wrong I idea about it.

    You are so funny, not. Too many here just don’t take stealing seriously.
