Looks like Kos has got Domenech. People really did some digging to find this out. Boy, will the left crow if they bring down the WaPo's new right-wing blogger. Patterico points it out.

Post Blogger Domenech: Plagiarist?

By Patterico on General

Thanks to a rude commenter on this site who deserves no recognition, I have learned that Washington Post blogger Ben Domenech has some ’splainin to do.

A guy at Kos noticed some similarities between this Domenech column from when he was a student in 1999, and this P.J. O’Rourke book (start reading here).

And when I say “similarities,” I mean Domenech appears to have directly lifted entire pages from the O’Rourke book.

And just to show it was deliberate, Domenech did a bit of adaptation. As this fellow notes:

How do we know this wasn’t some misunderstanding? Because BenDom adapted his column to include particular William & Mary references such as the fraternity Psu-U, former President of the College Tim Sullivan, and Sam Sadler, vice president for student affairs.

Ouch.
