Colorado state Sen. Owen Hill (R), who is vying to challenge Sen. Mark Udall (D), told a funny joke about his time working in the slums of Africa.
"You spend time out there [in a Kenyan slum] and little kids are running around barefoot in these kinds of streets and you ask them what they want to be, they want to be an astronaut, they want to be a physicist, a marine biologist, one kid even told me he wanted to be President of the United States. I held back my snarky comment that said 'Well, you know what, we already have someone from Kenya as President of the United States.'"
In a very meta development, plagiarist Rand Paul appears to have been plagiarized.
For more than a week Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has been fending off criticism for using the writings of others, unattributed, in his own speeches, in an opinion article and in one of his books.
But now it appears that Mr. Paul has also been the possible victim of literary larceny himself; he has apparently had his own material lifted without credit.
The campaign website of a Republican candidate for the United States Senate in North Carolina, Greg Brannon, who Mr. Paul supports, includes descriptions of various policy positions that match those of Mr. Paul’s 2010 campaign website word for word.
And, in another strange case of role reversal...
A white candidate for the Houston Community College Board of Trustees won his election by passing for black.
An electrician best known for mailing homophobic fliers to thousands of Houston voters attacking the city's lesbian mayor narrowly won an election to the Houston Community College Board of Trustees after he misled voters into believing that he is African American. Dave Wilson defeated longtime incumbent Bruce Austin, who actually is black, in an overwhelmingly African American district. [...]
In an interview with a local TV station, the anti-gay activist turned higher education policymaker did not deny that he intended to mislead the electorate, instead justifying his actions by claiming that "[e]very time a politician talks, he's out there deceiving voters."
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world.
