Profiles in Plagiarism

If courage means setting a truly original course that may bring opposition, Gordon Brown may have missed the boat and swam in the wrong direction.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, while Little Gordie Brown was still brown nosing in knickers, found heroes he could profile for their bravery. The book won awards , launched a successful Presidential campaign and gave Obama the authorial idea.

Gordo Brown on the other hand produced a sad duplication of Kennedy's masterpiece. The Times called Brown's Portraits: "The baldest copy job of the last century!" The other Times suggested that Brown may be the least original author on either side of the Lake.

Brown spokesperson, Warren B. Kennedy warned critics that such Kennedy talk could cause a missile crisis and who knows what kind of assassination.
