    If the Kennedy-Nixon debate taught candidates anything at all, it was the power of good makeup, especially when on television.

    THAT is hilarious, but Romney's been on the outs ever since his, uh, peccadillo involving a cruel method for traveling with one's pet got some press.

    "because 'A' happened, it justifies 'B'"

    Mit's and Edwards' situations aren't linked.

    No. That is not a logical fallacy.

    Here is a list of some of them for your pleasure. http://www.nizkor.org/features/fallacies/

    And by the way, why don't you think they are linked? They are both stories about politicians spending large sums of money making themselves more attractive. What do you think the defining difference is ?

    That is a logical fallacy - and that's the page I sent to folk who fluster and buster on this site (and others).

    "Dude lectures about 'Poverty' while living an obviously wealthy/extremely comfortable lifestyle - spending HUNDREDS of dollars on just a hair cut"

    compared with

    "Guy spends $300 on make-up."

    My WIFE spends more than that, every year, on make up. It's really no big deal.
