The far right, tea-party website Breitbart has picked up the plagiarist Rand Paul’s editorial column. Breitbart News CEO Larry Solov announced Wednesday:
“We are pleased to add Senator Paul to our lineup of fearless, original thought leaders….”
“…original thought leaders…”??? Are you serious? I have to admit, though, I understand why Breitbart would bring the Senator on board… they are a perfect match. They completely compliment one another with their same tea-bagging, ignorant, hateful values. It’s a match made in hell. Does Solov’s comment indicate that he does not agree that Paulie plagiarized Wikipedia as well as some other columns? Just reinforces the fact that this site is not journalism but rather a stew of lies and right-wing propaganda. Imagine if it had been a democrat that had been caught plagiarizing. The Tea-baggers would be screaming for the plagiarist to resign their seat, and then demand to tar and feather the offender first only to follow with the deathly drawn and quartered punishment.
Here is a perfect example of what this site is all about… the story currently listed at the top of Breitbart’s site:
“The Nuclear Option: Sarah Palin Knew a Death Panel When She Saw One”
It starts out with:
“Mama Grizzly warned us this would happen. Under Obamacare, the sick and weak and old would stand before death panels of bureaucrats to be granted life or death.”
Now I must go throw up.
