Hey, Dan Richardt: If You're Going to Plagiarize, at Least Plagiarize Good Material

The "red" half of the Aberdeen newspaper's Red Blue & Purple is generally uninformed and uninformative, lacking links to actual news or evidence supporting any analysis. This morning, "red" author Dan Richardt also demonstrates unoriginality by plagiarizing—i.e. copying and claiming authorship, without attribution,—a dull and predictable chain e-mail claiming "My Dog Is a Democrat." See previous publication here, here, and here.

Now I suppose we can't throw the full plagiarism flag on folk wisdom or meme barfs like this that don't appear to have an identifiable originating author. But geez, Dan—at least give us something original... or save the electrons and just post a link to the site where you found it.
