In his speech tonight, John McCain referenced a "holiday from history" to deride his opponents -- well, really, mostly Barack Obama.
Guess what -- STOLEN WORDS! There's an epidemic.
Charles Krauthammer seems to be the proprietor of this cliche -- although lots of others have used the term.
We think Krauthammer should be given more nods for at least heading the google list (although I should add that a cursory survey I did from Narita Airport also doesn't produce anything I can find before his 2003 reference).
But to our knowledge, John McCain has not given him credit.
But can Barack exploit this vulnerability? Hillary?
