Gingrich spokesman on Palin "plagiarism" charge: That's silly

“I’m thrilled if Sarah Palin used a Newt Gingrich idea from an op-ed, or speech, or column or whatever,” Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler told POLITICO. “[Gingrich’s] response to people repeating his ideas has always been good.”…

Asked about the quotes, Tyler said: “I don’t understand what the issue is, she gave us credit.”

“Are we supposed to say that every time someone quotes Reagan, it’s plagiarism?” he asked. “That’s silly, just silly.”
