"An asshole and a plagiarist"

Congressman Jim Gibbons (R-NV): "We are here tonight not because of Rosie O'Donnell, Martin Sheen, George Clooney, Jane Fonda or Phil Donahue - they never sacrificed their lives for us or for liberty." Alabama state auditor Beth Chapman: "I’m here tonight because men and women of the United States military have given their lives for my freedom. I am not here tonight because Sheryl Crowe, Rosie O’Donnell, Jane Fonda or Phil Donahue, sacrificed their lives for me." Aww c'mon, at least Gibbons had the creativity to change one celebrity name. Go here for more "similarities." (Atrios)
