Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, authors of the national bestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar, aren't falling for any election year claptr ap-and they don't want their readers to either! In Aristotle and an Aardvar k Go to Washington, our two favorite philosopher-comedians return just in t ime to save us from the double-speak, flim-flam, and alternate reality of p olitics in America. Deploying jokes and cartoon as well as the occasional insight from Aristotl e and his peers, Cathcart and Klein explain what politicos are up to when t hey state: "The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence." (Donal d Rumsfeld), "It depends on what the meaning of the word ?is' is." (Bill Cl inton), or even, "We hold these truths to be self-evident..." (Thomas Jeffe rson, et al). Drawing from the pronouncements of everyone from Caesar to Condoleeza Rice, Genghis Kahn to Hillary Clinton, and Adolf Hitler to Al Sharpton. Cathcart and Klein help us learn to identify tricks such as "The Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy" (non causa pro causa) and the "The Fallacy Fallacy" (argumentum and logicam). Aristotle and an Aardvark is for anyone who ever felt like the politicos and pundits were speaking Greek. At least Cathcart and Klein provide the Latin name for it (raudatio publica)!
