Ben Domenech's Fifteen Minutes Sure Went By Fast...
There has been a story that has been percolating all week long that I've been meaning to mention, but between the last throes of the bowling league insurgency, and preparing for re-enlistment in the softball/baseball armies, I simply haven't had the time. But that's okay since real big-time bloggers like Atrios, Digby and TBogg (all posted on my pitiful excuse for a blogg roll) have been on the case like failure on Dubya.
For those of you unfamiliar with the trials and tribulations of recently new, and now former Washington Post hot young GOP pundit, Ben Domenech, the aforementioned blogmasters have been hitting this story like Big Papi with two on and two out in the bottom of the ninth. And since these blogs have done the critical work in explaining why, even in these days when Republicans seem to get away with just about everything, plagiarism is not something of which to be proud, and that, once a plagiarist has been exposed, as Domenech has been, he should probably tell his crazy colleagues over at his former redstate.com haunt to shut the hell up with the shrill, childish rationalizations of his lying work habits.
The best observation is on TBogg's blog. Scroll down to his post titled: The bruised honor of Ben Domenech to view the madness, and to admire the snark.
