The rule of law in America is under fire. The rule of law about which our chairman, Mr. Henry Hyde, spoke so eloquently just a few short moments ago; the rule of law which finds its highest and best embodiment in the absolute, the unshakable right each one of us has to walk into a courtroom and demand the righting of a wrong. Bob Barr
U.S. Rep. Bob Barr, R-Ga. AP, Dec 18, 1998
Fallacies take strongest hold not when they are flatly stated, but when they are buried in euphemism, assumption and implicit analogy, then repeated a thousand times in public discourse. So Wesley Clark refers to:1. ‘share of national income,’which implies a zero-sum game. Tiger Woods has a very high ‘share of national birdies.’ Therefore what exactly? Let’s redistribute some of his birdies to my scorecard?2. ‘the fortunate few.’ He makes no mention of any factor other than good fortune to explain why someone might earn more money than someone else. I used to think Tiger had achieved something great. Wesley Clark knows it was only luck. Barry Milliken
