However, it appears there may be grounds for some more copyright litigation in London. Apparently, President George W. Bush may be guilty of plagiarizing the 1980's BBC comedy "Yes, Minister".
From Dan Buck...
As fans of that Brit-com will recall, Prime Minister Jim Hacker ordered an investigation of a government leak, demanding that if found the leaker be tossed in jail. After the usual expensive, lengthy inquiry, his staff reported back -- we've found him. Well who is he, the PM asked? It's you, Prime Minister. (Dialogue from memory.)In the words of Yes, Minister's Sir Humphrey, "The ship of state is the only ship that leaks from the top."
P.S. OK, maybe it wasn't plagiarism, it was an "homage".
