← Two equally bad fallacies

My pet peeve fallacy is Authority=Relevancy followed nose to butt like an elephant line by Emotion = Validity. Every time I watch a talking head, interviewing a TV evangelist, seek an opinion on anything outside of the easiest way to separate little old ladies from their Social Security checks I just want to reach through the screen and strangle them all. Only slightly less rage inducing is the skull jarringly moronic assertion that ignorance and prejudice make people feel good so it should be codified into our system of laws.
