Did Sarah Palin steal Newt Gingrich‘s words? Or did she just hire a really lazy speechwriter?
In her recent speech about Ronald Reagan, Alaska Gov. Palin has been accused of blatantly copying from an article co-written by Gingrich.
Blogger Geoffrey Dunn, a Reagan expert and author, made the accusation of the Huffington Post.
Dunn carefully compared Palin's recent speech introducing former Reagan’s son Michael Reagan to a piece about Reagan’s legacy, written by Gingrich and Craig Shirley in 2005.
Gingrich/Shirley: "Reagan never won an argument in Washington. Reagan won his arguments in the country with the American people."
