President Plagiarist

So the other day, W finally did something I thought needed to happen: he chose (late as it was) to address the possible avian flu pandemic, asking for some $7.1 billion to take care of it. I started thinking, "Gee, I wish his approval rating was always this bad, then maybe he would've actually been, ya know, doing his job for the last 5 years!" Then, lo and behold, I find out where he thought of it:
The president's request is similar to a $7.9 billion supplemental appropriation for flu pandemic planning assembled by Democratic leaders and passed last week by the Senate.

Sorta like No Child Left Behind.
