Rand Paul added to the Gattaca entry? Don’t look at us!


Somewhere between the production of tonight’s closing segment and the actual airing of that segment about Rand Paul copying whole passages from the Gattaca Wikipedia entry for his anti-abortion speech while campaigning for Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate (and Attorney General) Ken Cuccinelli, someone changed entry to reflect its use by Paul.

 The only way he can achieve his dream of becoming an astronaut is to become a “Rand Paul talking point”, a person who impersonates a “valid” with a superior genetic profile.

The entry was changed back again shortly thereafter, but hey, don’t blame the Maddow show, that’s not even close to the NBC Universal IP address. :)

Rachel Maddow noticed a striking similarity between Rand Paul’s description of the movie “Gattaca” and the Wikipedia version.
