A very modest suggestion

Eli has a very modest suggestion. Ken Cuccinelli has stirred a hornets nest with his latest contribution to American Injustice, the second CID trying to get Michael Mann. To Eli this is a splendid opportunity to spread the word about the Wegman plagiarism affair. Eli snuck this into a couple of places

Frankly, why AG Cuccinelli is doing this is beyond Eli, especially when there is a real scandal at his alma mater, George Mason University, where multiple PhD theses contain plagiarized sections and it has been shown that a senior academic plagiarized in a report to Congress which DID have policy implications. The administration at GMU has stuck its head firmly into the sand.

Eli refers, of course, to Edward Wegman, who simply copied sections out of a book by Ray Bradley (one of the people he was trying to trash) and then twisted Bradley's conclusions. You can get details at

Go forth and froth.

Horatio loves it when Eli quotes Eli (in the third person once removed)

It's really a beauteous thing.

Cuccinelli's barratry reflects the territorial obsession that led him to cover the breasts of Liberty on Virginia’s Great Seal-

It’s a relatively small state, and there is only room for one boob in the Attorney General’s office.
