Quote of the Day

The politician's syllogism,
  1. We must do something
  2. This is something
  3. Therefore, we must do this.
As identified by "Sir Humphrey Appleby" in a 1988 episode of the BBC television political sitcom Yes, Prime Minister called "Power to the People".

It is of course a logical fallacy.
