Apparently Paul Ryan isn’t averse to plagiarizing from other people’s works when it suits his own purposes. At the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, Paul Ryan told a touching anecdote of a poor boy who said he didn’t want a free lunch at school, but a brown bag one, because “a kid who had a [...]
