I saw this over at Not a sheep, and had to post it as well... It's not plagiarism if I say where I got it, is it?

Here's a compendium of some of his "work" at the Birmingham Mail. Something tells me we'll need to Wayback machine to read this pretty soon... Telling moments - he refers to the European volunteers as The International Brigade... And if only BO can do what JFK should have done (?) America will be the greatest country on earth...
Hmmm... no wonder why the media all sound the same. Apparently there is only one original writer, all others copy and paste...
