Having trouble understanding the Repuglican mind? Here's help!
Edited on Fri Aug-05-11 09:38 PM by Johnny Morales
One of the fundamental problems with Repuglican thinking is its totally foreign logic, and claims to being simple common sense while not displaying any sense in what they say or write whatsoever.

Now rather than a lengthy point by point explanation, that would put anyone to sleep. I have a simple little bit of writing that should allow anyone to understand the grounding in which Repuglicans root their logic and their reasons.

A group of 100 Repuglicans are asked to read a series of simple statements, and then give their conclusion as to the overall meaning they have.

Vodka and ice will ruin your kidneys.

Rum and ice will ruin your liver.

Whiskey and ice will ruin your heart.

Gin and ice will ruin your brain.

Soda and ice will ruin your teeth.

After some deliberation the 100 Repuglicans were all unanimous as to what this meant overall.

Their answer: Ice is a dangerous, toxic substance and should be avoided at all cost.

And yeah, that's it.


EDIT: OOOPS! They didn't write it though, apparently!

3. Causal analysis failure.
"Post hoc ergo propter hoc, Latin for "after this, therefore because of this," is a logical fallacy (of the questionable cause variety) that states, "Since that event followed this one, that event must have been caused by this one." It is often shortened to simply post hoc and is also sometimes referred to as false cause, coincidental correlation, or correlation not causation."
- Wikipedia, Post hoc ergo propter hoc

Also known as the "talking out of your ass" fallacy. Although, among contemporary Republicans stupidity is a virtue.

6. Unless...
...the Koch Brothers figure out how to make a big profit selling ice. In that case, ice becomes the absolute most bestest thing ever and only dirty hippies could possibly think otherwise.
