Huckabee's Stolen Immigration Plan

It's almost always cheaper, faster, and easier to plagiarize someone else's answers to a complex question than generate your own. However, expediency is not among the most important virtues we seek in candidates for the President of the United States.
Sometimes plagiarism can go undetected for years or never get discovered at all. Unfortunately for the thief, when the plagiarized answers are published on a Presidential frontrunner's website, instead of a term paper, it is easier for others to detect.
It becomes easier still when the numerous plagiarized passages are ripped from a published editorial in one of the most prominent conservative magazine in America.
I don't know which bothers me more: that Mike Huckabee flagrantly stole an immigration plan when it became apparent that he didn't really have one, or that more than a year into his presidential bid he didn't really have one.
