Josey Wales - The Contest


Do you know what a logical fallacy is?  "A fallacy is an argument which provides poor reasoning in support of its conclusion. Fallacies differ from other bad arguments in that many people find them psychologically persuasive. That is, people will mistakenly take a fallacious argument to provide good reasons to believe its conclusion. An argument can be fallacious whether or not its conclusion is true."  I was thinking the other day how Josey is like an almanac of logical fallacies.

Budding lawyer?  Took philosophy in college?  Recognize the tortuous bending of logic of a tired old man with a tired old bit?  Since it's a dreary day, and kind of a downer for Ranger fans, I'm holding a contest.  This post will remain open for the next two days.  We're going to play Josey Wales logical fallacy bingo.  The person who posts the most Josey Wales' examples of logical fallacies from the list in the above link (and no double dipping -- you can't just post the same logical fallacy over and over again with different examples) will win one of DShepp's t-shirts courtesy of yours truly.  Post a link to the comment when you provide your examples.
