From the comments section of the OC Blog from Assemblyman Chuck DeVore.
“Clintonian,” as in “It’s a Clintonian tactic to boldly lie about the obvious.” – Assemblyman Chuck DeVore.
Reminds me of the syllogism method of reasoning.
Logic. A form of deductive reasoning consisting of a major premise, a minor premise, and a conclusion; for example, All humans are mortal, the major premise, I am a human, the minor premise, therefore, I am mortal, the conclusion.
Reasoning from the general to the specific; deduction.
A subtle or specious piece of reasoning.
My favorite example: God is love. Love is blind. Therefore, Stevie Wonder is God.
Guys and Gals…time to have fun with Chuck’s definition of Clintonian.
I’ll start (please chime in)
“It would be Clintonian to say, as Vice President Cheney said *yesterday* on the Rush Limbaugh program, that the War in Iraq is going extremely well.”
“It would be Clintonian to say that this Republican administration is for limited government.”
you get the idea….chime in and we can send a link to Mr. DeVore.
