It seems Mike Huckabee is developing a pattern of appropriating other peoples lines, without crediting them.
I first noticed this during his Ames, Iowa speech, when he used Newt Gingrich's example of how FedEx can track packages, but we can't keep track of illegal immigrants (he used this idea, without mentioning Newt).
... Now, he's using Colin Powell's "you break it, you bought it" Pottery Barn metaphor -- without mentioning where he got the idea from.
I mean, if it's cool to appropriate someone else's idea -- without being called on it -- then just let me say: "Ask not what your country can do for you ..."
