Great moments in Venn diagrams


The Republican war on logic and math continues with this Venn diagram produced by losing governor Scott Walker to try and persuade people that the legislation passed by the lame-duck legislature and signed by him stripping the incoming Democratic governor of some powers was not a blatant anti-democratic act.

This graphic from The Progressive magazine compared Walker’s idea of a Venn diagram with how it should actually be used.

Don’t these people have aides who have at least some basic knowledge and can stop them from embarrassing themselves?

    No, otherwise they would be doing something else?

    Didn’t he get expanded powers from the legislature? I could swear I heard that years ago but none of the coverage of this I’ve heard mentioned it, and I’d have thought a quick comparison of what people said then and now would be an easy way to do very good journalism.
