CNN's story on the court battle over the national do-not-call registry includes a quote from U.S. Rep. Billy Tauzin, R-Louisiana, who says in defense of the registry, "Fifty million Americans can't be wrong."

Whenever I hear this sort of paralogic, all I can think of is Clive James, talking about some popular-but-awful German TV show: "Fifty million Germans can't all be wrong... twice."

(I do actually hope the national do-not-call registry gets implemented. I just don't think this is the best argument in its favour.)
