The Bush Sylogism

Tim Russert, "The Boston Globe and the Associated Press have gone through some of their records and said there's no evidence that you reported to duty in Alabama during the summer and fall of 1972." Bush replied, "Yeah, they're just wrong. There may be no evidence, but I did report. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been honorably discharged." That's the Bush syllogism: The evidence says one thing; the conclusion says another; therefore, the evidence is false." William Saleton.

This article is a damn fine analysis of Bush's pretzel logic. That he can get away with logic this flawed as the leader of the free world is both amazing and alarming.
