Fred over there on Slacktivist has another fine post up, quoting both Sarah Vowell and Pat Robertson, not to mention Jesus. You can't beat that.
Here's my favorite bit:
Anybody who quotes that phrase without quoting the rest of Jesus' sentence should not be trusted. Here's the full sentence: "The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want." Interesting how the first part of that sentence so often gets quoted as though it refuted the second part.
