Melody for president
Power Pundit has a post (content of which has mostly been taken from another blog) that discusses Melody Townsel's plagiarism in college 20 years ago. Power Pundit concludes the post by saying that the plagiarism "blows her credibility out of the water." When I first read this, I thought it was a parody. We're talking about 21 years ago, after all, and plagiarism doesn't exactly count as high crimes in my book. But Power Pundit seems to be blogging this with a straight face. Some conservatives, while supporting the Bolton nomination, have a hard time going along with this latest witch-hunt. My advice to Power Pundit? Step onto a college campus sometime my friend. Throw a rock and try to hit someone who hasn't plagiarized. (Or hasn't raped, killed, snorted coke, or gone AWOL). Of course the post is completely ridiculous. If that's the biggest dirt Melody has in her life in the last two decades, we need to elect her president.
