In politics words are used to confuse and persuade all too often. Arguemnts take the form of equivocations and false logic. An example is the politician’s syllogism, also known as the politician’s fallacy is a (falsely) logical argument of the form:

We must do something
This is something
Therefore, we must do this.

Oh man, do we choke on this all the time or what?
