    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.

    scpanich, he did it in many, many speeches…

    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.

    To The Tower of London with him!
    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.”

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

    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.

    I suspect a lot of people who haven’t spent some time in the world of academia, don’t think plagiarism is always a big deal. This was a stump speech for a Virginia gubernatorial candidate. In Paul’s mind, it wasn’t an important speech, or one that that would be given much attention. He didn’t bother to use his own wording & thought he could get away with using the Wikipedia summary without anyone noticing. Maybe he thought he’d get ridiculed for citing Wikipedia.

    The thing that really makes him look bad, is that he refused to acknowledge his source when he got caught. He could have just admitted that he looked at the plot summary to “refresh his memory” & should have said as much in his speech. Instead he claimed, “nothing we said was not given attribution to where it came from.” He called it a “disagreement on how you footnote things.”

    It’s safe to assume Paul has spent enough time in school to know that isn’t true.

    But why would Victoria Regina need healthcare from the US government.sponsored insurance market. She’s entitled to National Health coverage if she wants it. Even Liz II is entitled to National Health.
