Steven Taylor has discovered that Mona Charen has written stuff that looks suspiciously similar to material that has been in PoliBlog and OTB. I’ve noted similar occurences in other columns. And, while bloggers almost always actually link to the columns we’re borrowing from, the columnists almost never do that. This is clearly a last, desperate attempt by the professional commentariat to keep up with the blogosphere. Pretty soon, Rush Limbaugh is just going to read stuff from InstaPundit on the air. (Gordon Liddy already spends an hour reading the Washington Times to his audience, and most blogs are way better than the Washington Times.)
