Joe Biden dropped out of his last Presidential run due to the fact that he plagiarized another’s speech. After some research it was determined that in college he was caught plagiarizing as well. His excuse in college was that he did not know how to properly cite others works, sorry total BS and nothing more than special treatment for Joe.
Well we now see what Joe Biden has brought to the Obama campaign. The Art of Plagiarism… Only this time, Obama is the culprit. The work is a cartoon… I guess Obama did not know how to properly cite a cartoon… The funny thing is he never admits to plagiarism, he credits his subconscious mind for an almost word for word quote from the cartoon… And yet the media passes right over this as if it did not happen…
For those liberals that say it does not matter, yes it does, it demonstrates his ethics, integrity and ability to think for himself. The change being brought is that of the liberal machine that has been destroying this country for years, only this time it could be a liberal congress and executive, yes I intentionally did not capitalize Congress as shame has been brought to it over the past two years.
Now I do not know which is funnier, the fact that Obama needs to take his talking points from a cartoon or that he could be our next President…
The folks at FreeRepublic have found an interesting… uh, shall we say coincidence… concerning Barack Obama’s widely panned September 9 comments made at a rally in Virginia where he seemed to be saying that Governor Palin was a “pig” by referencing the “lipstick” quote from her acceptance speech at the GOP convention. It is looking like Obama’s comments were not off the cuff, but scripted. And, not only were they scripted, but they were stolen without attribution from a Washington Post political cartoon by Tom Toles from September 5. Will the media notice?
Obama tried to quip that “you can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig” when attacking the McCain/Palin record. But the entire segment, including the previous comments leading up to the insensitive “pig” line, are almost word for word from the Tom Toles cartoon from September 5.
John McCain says he’s about change too. Exce- and and so I guess his whole angle is – watch out, George Bush – except for economic policy, healthcare policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy, and Karl-Rove-style politics, we’re really gonna shake things up in Washington.
That’s not change.
That’s that’s just callin’ sumpin’ the same thing somethin’ different.
But you know, you can’t, you know, you you can put, ah, lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.
And now for the cartoon…
You can see for yourself that the entire segment before his “pig” quip matches the Toles cartoon nearly word-for-word.
So, now we have a few points to ponder. Will the Obama campaign admit that this whole bit was lifted from Tom Toles? And are we to understand that the Obama campaign is now being programmed by cartoons? And will the Old Media confront Obama on his little theft from a cartoon?
See ya in the funny papers, Barack.
