A Bush Aide? Really?

Surprisingly, and against all conventional wisdom, someone in the Bush administration was tossed out on his arse for plagiarizing:
Early Friday morning, blogger Nancy Nall published her post "Copycat." By Friday evening, [Special Assistant to the President Timothy] Goeglein had resigned. And The Fort Wayne News-Sentinel, announced that their internal investigation of Goeglein's columns had revealed that of the 38 columns Goeglein had published over the last eight years, plagiarized passages were discovered in 20.
You would think that in this age of teh internet tubez, a would-be plagiarizer would think twice about doing something that is so easily uncovered through a search engine.

Of course, Mr. Goeglein's role model was an administration that doesn't even think once about anything.
