Rand Paul's Plagiarism Charges Continue

Most of the responses I've seen from the right on Sen. Rand Paul's numerous plagiarism charges have been either attempts to shrug them off as "nothing," or they have been to attack the messenger. The messenger in this case was Rachel Maddow, and right-wing attacks on her usually amount to plays on her name ("Mad Cow"), and homophobic slurs. They're just so clever.

But plagiarism is not a frivolous, "nothing" charge. And this wasn't one speech, or even a series of them. It's cropping up in Paul's writings in many, many places.
