From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS NEWS:
The office of Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts is blaming a technical error for the fact that comments attributed to Brown posted to his campaign website were lifted verbatim from former Sen. Elizabeth Dole.
“I was raised to believe that there are no limits to individual achievement and no excuses to justify indifference,” Brown was quoted as saying on his site in comments that were removed earlier this week. “From an early age, I was taught that success is measured not in material accumulations, but in service to others. I was encouraged to join causes larger than myself, to pursue positive change through a sense of mission, and to stand up for what I believe.”
Dole, the former North Carolina Republican senator, used those exact words in kicking off her campaign in 2002.
I wonder if Bob Dole knows about this. This is on top of Nekkid
Liddy Scotty stupidly insulting Elizabeth Warren and pissing off a lot of women with a sexist remark. No worries, kids. Problems solved!!

A TPMCafe blogger charged plagiarism earlier after picking up on a striking similarity between a passage in Maureen Dowd’s column today and a recent post by TPM editor Josh Marshall.
Dowd: “More and more the timeline is raising the question of why, if the torture was to prevent terrorist attacks, it seemed to happen mainly during the period when the Bush crowd was looking for what was essentially political information to justify the invasion of Iraq.”
Marshall: “More and more the timeline is raising the question of why, if the torture was to prevent terrorist attacks, it seemed to happen mainly during the period when we were looking for what was essentially political information to justify the invasion of Iraq.”
😯 How did that happen? After some digging, your intrepid reporter (that would be me) has cracked the case! Sockpuppet!!
