Colbert Blasts Maddow: Rand Paul Is Not A Plagiarist, Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?
Stephen Colbert talks about what he and all Americans are probably obsessed about now, the Virginia gubernatorial race between Republican Ken Cuccinelli and Democrat Terry McAuliffe. Colbert insist that it’s the biggest battle in Virginia since the Revolutionary War.
Earlier this week, Rachel Maddow caught Senator Rand Paul plagiarizing off the Wikipedia page for the 1997 movie Gattaca when he made a speech in support of Ken Cuccinelli. Maddow mocked Paul, comparing his speech to the Wikipedia page and pointing out that it was almost verbatim.
In Paul’s defense, Stephen Colbert said just because he used the same words, it doesn’t mean he is a plagiarist. Colbert suggest that maybe Paul wrote the Wikipedia entry on Gattaca.
Colbert blasts Rachel Maddow, “How dare you besmirch this man’s good name. Rand Paul is not a plagiarist.” Colbert then pulls out a few iPads and reads the information about Rand Paul.
Blasting Maddow again, Colbert asked, “Who the hell you think you are?” Answering that question, Colbert reads the information on Maddow off of his iPad.
