    I was reading the LA Daily News this morning when I came across this article, which basically accuses Gray Davis, as feckless a politician as has ever existed, of plagarizing Clinton's 1993 State of the Union Address in his 2003 State of the State address.

    So I went looking for transcripts of the two:

    Clinton 1993
    Davis 2003

    When Governors speak from this podium, they ordinarily discuss a range of issues.
    But these are not ordinary times. We have one overriding task before us.
    We must come together to create new jobs and get our economy back on track.
    This task will not be easy. But it is essential if we're going to continue moving forward.
    And, together, my friends, we've made real progress.

    Seems to me if the nimrod hadn't spent $50 Million on his re-election and plunged the state into a $35 Billion deficit, he might have been able to afford a real speech writer ;)

    I was just reading through thathere myself, and thought it was a joke, but it couldn't be because it made front page headlines-
    his speechwriter wrote it off as "accidental homage".......bull$hit.
