    Rand Paul was probably just deeply moved by the Wikipedia article, it’s probably one of the most intellectual things he’s read in a while. Any way, I’m sure his fan base will swarm over the article to add citations to the parts he plagiarized in order to try to make it look like those sections were citing him.

      He could have avoided this if he’d just have quoted Conservapedia. Nobody would have cared.

        You mean he didn’t plagiarize from Conservapedia? Then why did Rand Paul go off on an incoherent paranoid tangent… Oh wait never mind.

    It has to be true! Someone who works for him saw a movie about it once!

    I doubt he writes his own speeches. His speech writer needs to be reprimanded, though.
