Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, authors of the national best seller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar, aren't falling for any election year claptrap - and they don't want their listeners to either! In Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington, our two favorite philosopher-comedians return just in time to save us from the doublespeak, flim-flam, and alternate reality of politics in America.
Deploying jokes as well as the occasional insight from Aristotle and his peers, Cathcart and Klein explain what politicos are up to when they state: "The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence" (Donald Rumsfeld); "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is" (Bill Clinton); or even, "We hold these truths to be self-evident...." (Thomas Jefferson, 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)!
