The Ever Clever...

... James Taranto "fact-checks" Ted Strickland.
Strickland even violated the seasonal armistice in the War on Christmas: "If Mitt [Romney] was Santa Claus," he said, "he'd fire the reindeer and outsource the elves."
THE FACTS: Santa Claus has already outsourced all production to the North Pole, which is not within the U.S. And whereas Claus is portly and has a white beard, Romney is trim and clean-shaven. Thus the premise of Strickland's statement is false. In symbolic logic, a false premise implies anything. We therefore rate Strickland's statement as "true."
