Great plagiarists think alike
This was Obama's prelude to his now infamous "lipstick on a pig" remarks from Tuesday:
“John McCain says he’s about change, too. And so, I guess his whole angle is, ‘Watch out, George Bush. Except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics … we’re really gonna shake things up in Washington,’”
Only after Obama was contacted by the Washington Post did he attribute the remarks to its cartoonist. I guess we now know why Obama chose Joe Biden as his running mate -- great plagiarists think alike.
