Is it Rush Limbaugh or Barack Obama?
It would help if the word were spelled correctly. It's sophistry, the Cambridge on-line dictionary definition:

Definition

sophistry Show phonetics
noun FORMAL
the clever use of arguments which seem true but are really false in order to deceive people

sophism Show phonetics
noun [C] FORMAL
an argument which seems true but is really false and is used to deceive people

sophist Show phonetics
noun [C] FORMAL
It was basically a selfish act, though no doubt a sophist would argue that it was done for the general good.

HDM don't let people push you around! Steveinbas, quit acting like a playground bully. Why don't you two go at it full-bore. It might inject some life in this forum.

Thanks for the spelling correction...it was a typo.

I wasted four years getting a degree in economics, but I learned one thing.

As John Maynard Keynes said, "In the long run, we'll all be dead."

Live now.

Us? I thought you were a you.

But no, I am actually not nearly good enough. That's why I choose to let you have at it all by yourself. Obama and Limbaugh, for Chrissakes! You just wanted to start a fight with this ... bored? And I don't want to play. Have fun, those of you who do.
