On Copying

Oh dear. First Hillary accuses Barack of copying from some governor. Now we find out Hillary is borrowing from Bill.
Talking Points Memo's Joshua Micah Marshall reports:

In 1992 Bill gave an interview to the NYT in which he said, "The hits that I've taken in this election are nothing compared to the hits the people ofhtis countryand this state have benn taking for a long time."

Hillary, in last night's debate:
"You know, the hits I've taken in life are nothing compared to what goes on every day in the lives of people across our country."

Where will it all end?

Look at the blogosphere, for example. There are some really great blogs out there that do almost nothing but quote other people. OK, they attribute, but still. They quote and link and refer for a few paragraphs and they're done for the day.

Not I. Oh no. DIH barely knows how to link and is too lazy to do it most of the time anyway. This stuff here is original. Mostly. I think.
Which is probably not the correct way to blog, now that I think of it.

I better start looking around for some folks to copy. All suggestions are welcome.
