Palin the Plagiarist?

When congressional and Senatorial Republicans disinvited Sarah Palin from a fundraising event this weekend in favor of Newt Gingrich many interpreted this as a snub, but according to sources familiar with her schedule, Palin's dropping into the dinner after all. Palin is facing charges (she denies) that she plagiarized an article co-written by Gingrich in a speech introducing Michael Reagan, Ronald’s son, to an audience in Anchorage on Wednesday. Blogger Geoffrey Dunn slapped Palin with the charge on The Huffington Post and offers a side by side. Some passages are directly lifted, such as “Ronald Reagan never won any arguments in Washington. He won the arguments by resonating with the American people.”
