Goodbye, Montana Democratic Sen. John Walsh

by Jim Geraghty

Montana senator John Walsh, a Democrat and recent appointee, was an underdog yesterday. He’s pretty much toast today:

An examination of the final paper required for Mr. Walsh’s master’s degree from the United States Army War College indicates the senator appropriated at least a quarter of his thesis on American Middle East policy from other authors’ works, with no attribution.

Awaiting comment from Vice President Joe Biden, who is waiting to see what Neil Kinnock says first.
