Logical Fallacies in Politics: Introduction

With this current election season in full swing (swinging high above a cliff, I think) logical fallacies are flying in all kinds of directions from the left, the right, the center, and most importantly from the gutter. All of us from time to time engage in logical fallacies. No one is immune, not even logicians.

So, I thought in this current election cycle I would begin a series of brief posts highlighting one logical fallacy each time and giving two examples of the fallacy from the left and from the right-- all in the spirit of bipartisanship.

When it comes to nation state politics, I am an equal opportunity annoyer.

The first post is set for Monday.
