Change you can Xerox: Obama lifts a line from Hillary?

Tuzla and Wright are fading and we need some new discord to play with. Let’s see if we can’t get those old, moronic plagiarism accusations going again. A tipster notes this line from Obama’s speech yesterday in North Carolina. Sound familiar?

“George Bush called this the ownership society, but what he really meant was ‘you’re-on-your-own’ society,” Obama told a town hall meeting here, tying McCain to a president whose popularity is low. “John McCain apparently wants to continue this.”

That was a number-one hit for Hillary on the collectivist charts last year, as you may recall. I’m happy to believe he stumbled onto this veddy, veddy clever wordplay himself, notwithstanding the attention it got when she used it. Think Team Hillary will be quite as magnanimous? Or have they finally accepted the fact that they’re all singing from the same songbook?
