Man, I thought it was bad that my bro sleptwalked.
Well, well, lookee who was on Sean Hannity’s radio show talking about stealing Howard Dean’s Fifty State Strategy. Rove’s awfully good at things like theft, so openly discussing it came quite easily to him:
“I hate to say it, but we need to copy what Howard Dean did, And that is make our ground game in all 50 states… We need to have a better ground game in all 50 states…”
TPM has more here.
Hey, a sleazebag can dream, can’t he?
During former President Bill Clinton’s campaign, when he ran against then-President George H.W. Bush, James Carville coined the phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid,” which referred to Clinton being a better choice because Bush wasn’t focused on the economy.
Last night, Willard M. Romney said this:
Carville shot back in a DCCC fundraising letter called “Mitt stole my line”:
“In Romney’s speech bashing President Obama last night, he said it’s still about the economy and we’re not stupid,” the letter read in part. “Yeah, it still is about the economy stupid. It’s about how hucksters like Mitt crashed it, the middle class paid the price, and the 1 percent got more tax cuts.”
Oops, Newton Leroy Gingrich lifted a song. Via Rolling Stone:
Newt Gingrich has been ordered to stop using the song “How You Like Me Now?” on the campaign trail. The GOP presidential hopeful was served a cease and desist notice from Third Side Music, the Montreal-based publishing company that owns the rights to the song.
So to recap: A couple of Newtie’s wives stole a husband, and he steals copyrighted work. What wholesome, upstanding, family values people these are.
You all remember Fred Thompson, don’t you? Or as I like to call him, Fredhorn Leghorn. Looks like he’s become the next Milton Berle (Berle had a reputation for stealing material from other comedians):
Fred’s tweet, “Getting BP’s CEO to testify at a Congressional hearing DID accomplish one thing: British accents are no longer sexy #ftrs #tcot”
Then a couple minutes later, another lift.
To see what that one was, please read the rest of the post.
Stephen Colbert, via the article:
He’s one of the dullest people we’ve heard of. So “parallel thinking” is highly unlikely. You know what’s even less funny than not being funny? Plagiarizing. Stealing. Ripping off other’s material without attribution.
He’s scheduled to appear on The Daily Show tonight. Oh please, Jon, please address this in that way you address things.
Ah say, Fredhorn, Ah say… ya got a little problem on your hands there, boy.
