Paul's statements are akin to The Lord's Prayer. Do we cite the Bible verse in detail each time it is said. Some statements are so common, that most of us are instantly aware of where they come from.

Rachel Maddow was caught in more than few actual plagiarisms, and the media fell silent.

I quote from Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech all the time. Parts of his speech are so well-known that when I do take a quote people know I'm borrowing from Martin Luther King. Must I recall the source where I first read the line?

It's obvious what the left is doing here.

Aha!  Caught you.  Look at number 5 at this link:

Obviously, you plagiarized the term "it's obvious what the left is doing..." from Jeremy Bennett's Facebook page.

Rats! Caught again. I'm so embarrassed. I should've known someone would recognize Jeremy Bennett's phraseology and his unique understanding of the liberal mind.

The quote in question? A movie summary from Wikipedia. Ooh, yeah. That's a real scandal, there.
