Summary
What did Donald Rumsfeld mean when he said, "The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence"? And what's the essence behind Bill Clinton's gem, "It depends on what the meaning of the word is is"? Whether they are misleading with doublespeak, having fun with ambiguity, drawing weak analogies, or getting inappropriately personal, politicians, frequently make our heads spin. Cathcart and Klein sift through the claptrap and make sense of it all
