Relevant logical fallacies 1. Personal attack “That claim cannot be true. Dave believes it, and we know how morally repulsive he is.”

2. Two wrong make a right “Bill has borrowed Jane's expensive pen, but found he didn't return it. He tells himself that it is okay to keep it, since she would have taken his.” 3. Red herring "We admit that this measure is popular. But we also urge you to note that there are so many bond issues on this ballot that the whole thing is getting ridiculous." 4. Appeal to pity "I should receive an 'A' in this class. After all, if I don't get an 'A' I won't get the fellowship that I want." 5. Straw man Prof. Jones: "The University just cut our yearly budget by $10,000." Prof. Smith: "What are we going to do?" Prof. Brown: "I think we should eliminate one of the teaching assistant positions. That would take care of it." Prof. Jones: "We could reduce our scheduled raises instead." Prof. Brown: “I can't understand why you want to bleed us dry like that, Jones."
