Borrowed words

At the suggestion of a friend, I'm reading Rick Perlstein's "Before the Storm" about Barry Goldwater.  It's pretty even-handed even though there are little slights and asides that reveal Perlstein's leanings.  Now there's an allegation that he plagiarized sections of his new book on Reagan.  Here's Tim Cavanaugh at the Corner: "Rick Perlstein: Probable plagiarist, definite jerk."
