Pilfering Parts for his Speech

I noted several cases of semi-plagiarism in Kerry's speech:

  • The flag (this flag belongs to all of us) bit was from Howard Dean's stump speech.

  • The "help is on the way" bit was a line from Cheney's 2000 convention speech and was a duplicate of what Edwards did last night with his "hope is on the way" riff (and Edwards' had more energy)

  • The bit about wearing religion on one's sleeve is from the Ron Reagan eulogy of Ronald Reagan.
