Now that Rand Paul has been caught plagiarizing other sources, including Wikipedia, in multiple speeches and even a long portion in one of his books, he is responding in one predictable way and one absolutely demented way. The predictable response is to attack his accusers:
Under fire this week for plagiarizing some of his speeches, Paul shrugged off the allegations and proclaimed that he’s being “unfairly targeted by hacks and haters.”
He continued, “And like I say, if, you know, if dueling were legal in Kentucky, if they keep it up, you know, it would be a duel challenge. But I can’t do that, because I can’t hold office in Kentucky then.”
Seriously? Someone criticizes you and you want to pick up a gun and try to kill them? That should disqualify you from holding any public office of any kind.
