Top 10 Logical Fallacies in Politics

Wonder how he managed to narrow it down to ten.... 

This is a very good list explanations and examples of fallacies commonly made by politicians.  In the world according to Gretchen, all children would learn about logical fallacies in school at a young age and then go home and apply that knowledge when watching politicians speak on TV.  They and their parents would have animated discussions about which fallacies were made and how they know, and as they approached voting age the kids would have developed a sturdy sense of skepticism about everything coming out of the mouth of anyone who had either received votes or was asking for them.

I'd settle, however, for them learning about fallacies in school.
