After being on the receiving end of a raft of criticism for rampant plagiarism, Sen. Rand Paul is poking a little bit of fun at himself.
In his debut column at his new home, Breitbart, Sen. Paul cracks a joke at his own expense. After quoting William Wilbeforce, Paul obliquely acknowledges his problems with plagiarism by including a "note to self" that reads: "Don't forget to footnote this." (Paul has previously promised that henceforth all of his published work will be thoroughly footnoted, so as to guarantee people leave him "the hell alone.")
